3rd June 2016

Following on from the success of our Spring Champagne & Sparkling Wine tasting in Mayfair, London, where over 170 labels exhibited and over 200 industry professionals attended, we now have organised our Autumn tasting which will be on HQS Wellington on the River Thames 4th October 2016, 10:30am – 5:30pm.


At our Spring tasting, trade and press were invited to taste sparkling wines from all over the world from some well known labels to many lesser known and many not yet represented in the UK. Countries that were on offer included Belgium, France, Spain, South Africa, New Zealand, England and many more.

“The event was smashing and we came away with a number of leads.” Josh Whitlam, Lyme Bay Winery.

Please can I congratulate you on a splendid tasting. I don’t recall a better sparkling tasting in almost forty years in the trade.” Paul Hexter

Many industry professionals were present from prestigious restaurants, hotels and bars across London to top industry writers, wine merchants and also a celebrity face or two!


Our Autumn 2016 tasting will feature the ever popular ‘Free Pour Area’ along with the opportunity for labels to take their own tables to display their full range of wines, showcase banners/branding etc.
