Meet the brilliant people behind the wines
A common thread across our diverse portfolio is the connection our winemakers have with their land. They’re artisans who work in harmony with their environment and the traditions of their regions. Over half our winemakers work organically or biodynamically, 30 are certified organic and a further 10 certified biodynamic.
You’ll find new faces: Remi Leroy who is making beautifully balanced, structured Pinot Noir focused Champagnes in the Côte des Bar; Château du Mourre du Tendre who work with whole-bunches to make fresh graceful Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape; Frank John who is working biodynamically in Pfalz and making one of the best Pinots we’ve tried this year; Viña Somoza distinctive Godellos with a vivid sense of place; and Gaintza Txakolina from the cool Atlantic coast of Spain.
They’ll be joined by familiar faces from the Indigo family including Telmo Rodriguez, Terroir al Límit, Suertes del Marqués, Colet, Sashi Moorman and Vitor Claro. Plus, the Fedellos boys will be showing their new project called Peixes from the Galician highlands.
Free pour is back with a focus on the southern hemisphere producers who will be harvesting and therefore unable to make it to London. Including new (for us) Argentine projects Super Uco and Gen del Alma from the talented Michelini crew; Viñedos de Alcohuaz pure mountain wines from 2,000 metres up in the Elqui Valley in Chile; Novum from Marlborough; Thousand Candles from the Yarra Valley; and some new arrivals from Ochota Barrels. We’ll also be highlighting a short, sharp list of wines that we feel represents real value in our portfolio – the sweet spot between quality, character and drinking pleasure.
Everyone agrees craft beer is a ‘thing’ brilliant for food pairing and a must on any serious drinks list. But it’s complicated with many different styles and the smorgasbord of seasonal specials. Fear not Nick and Theresa from our partner Biercraft will be on hand at the Biercraft Hub to talk you through the best solutions for your list. They’ll be joined by Lost & Grounded, Braybrooke, Verdant, Cloudwater, Kernel, Burning Sky and Beavertown Tempus Project. Need a break from the booze? There’ll be a refreshing collection of non-alcoholic alternatives to taste including Lucky Saint and Square Roots Sodas.
40 producers, 200+ wines, curated free pour, craft beer clinic, grown-up soft drinks. Such a unique, top-quality gathering of the artisanal wine and craft beer worlds is rare and not to be missed.
