London Wine Fair 2016: a must attend show

The London Wine Fair – now in its 36th year – is the U.K.’s leading drinks industry exhibition.  Located in London Olympia, the show, which is exclusively for trade professionals (over 11,000 visitors are expected to attend, including a significant number of buyers from mainland Europe), will run from 3rd to 5th May. Around 750 exhibitors – including a large French contingency – will descend on the capital, representing wines from more than 40 different countries making this a must-visit show for anyone involved in the drinks sector from the UK and internationally.


France will be represented via generic pavilion, established brands participating with their UK agents, boutique wineries and producers looking to break into the UK market for the first time.


Show content will include: The View Tastings - a self-contained area within the Fair, specifically for companies which deal in premium and super-premium wines, with daily fine wine tastings running alongside, including Châteauneuf-du-Pape on 4th May, the first time the appellation is exhibiting; Esoterica, a feature which showcases the portfolios of niche and micro-importers; and Wines Unearthed – Wines Unearthed is a standalone “village” dedicated to global wine producers seeking U.K. representation.
