The German Trade Tasting scheduled to take place at Vinopolis next Tuesday, 9 April has been postponed due to the Queen Mother's funeral.

The German Wine Information Service canvassed opinion from every area of the trade and the overwhelming feeling was that it would be inappropriate to hold the tasting on the same day as the funeral.

The German Trade Tasting will now be held later in the year.
