Featuring over 14,000 wines from 32 countries, innovative tastings, critical masterclasses and a host of brand new features for 2019, London Wine Fair is unmissable for anyone in the industry.

We will be revealing the first wines to receive IWSC 2019 awards at the event, presenting a selection of Gold medal winners for tasting.

Join the IWSC and friends on their stand (K40) for tasting, debate and more at their masterclasses:

11am - The Cradle of Wine: Reborn

Take a journey deep into the Balkans and back through time as we head East on an oenological pilgrimage to the heartlands of wine to discover a new wave of producers from ancient lands.

1.30pm - Gin, What Now?

Put down your glass of pink, rhubarb-flavoured gin for a moment and gaze into the great beyond with Joel Harrison as he explores what he believes is the next big thing in spirits.

3.30pm - Best of British Bubbles

All eyes are on the UK these days when it comes to fantastic fizz, especially from across the Channel. Find out from Suzy Atkins why British bubbles keep stealing the show!
