The IWSC is more than a competition. It is a global wine and spirits community, focused on people and expertise. In May, we are delighted to bring together members of our community at this year’s London Wine Fair, to share their knowledge and expertise through a series of unmissable masterclasses and panel talks.

The IWSC will be on stand K50 throughout the three days of the London Wine Fair, hosting a series of events which you can view on the London Wine Fair website, as well as below.
