Just-drinks LIWSF 2007 - Diary - 15 May
Coming up at this year's London International Wine & Spirits Fair…
French wine co-operative Mont Tauch (stands Q30 and H50/6) will be showing off its 'quality seal' at this year's fair. The co-op's full range of wines will shortly be garlanded by a neck tag, which "acts as a guarantee of their quality and southern French roots", the group claims. At the same time, the new look labels for the Mont Tauch South of France Fitou and Corbières will be on display, while the opportunity is open to try the 2006 new vintage releases.
Elsewhere, the Wine & Spirit Trade Association (stand R74) will be in attendance, giving members and non-members alike the chance to meet the team. The WSTA will also use the fair to promote the 'WSTA Toolkit: Social Responsibility' which will be published in the weeks following the event. The toolkit is designed to help members draw up and implement a social responsibility policy and has been based on the Social Responsibility Standards for the Production and Sale of Alcohol Drinks in the UK.
Seckford Agencies (stand I19) is bringing 18 winemakers from around the New World to the fair. Among the winemakers in attendance are Ian Hollick from Hollick Wines in Australia, Peter Cowley from the Te Mata Estate in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, Adi Badenhorst from Rustenberg Estate, South Africa, and Jose Manuel O. Fournier from Bodegas O Fournier, Argentina.
