Coming up at this year's LIWF

Coming up at this year's London International Wine Fair:

  • Artis (Stand I44) will showcase a range of new and existing “technologically-advanced” crystal glassware from Luigi Bormioli at the LIWF. The range has been designed to “enhance the olfactory experience of specific wine varietals”, whilst offering greater resistance to shock and breakage through the use of Son.hyx technology. The glasses will be demonstrated by sommelier Akos Hervai over the three days. Also on show will be four new suites - Bach, Aero, Hypnos and Incanto - from Luigi Bormioli. The suites are priced from GBP4.20 for a flute. For further information, contact Kathy Birch at
