Coming up at this year's London International Wine & Spirits Fair…

Wines of Chile will be present in force at this year's fair. At the Chile Pavilion (stand S40/S50) the trade body will be holding tastings of trophy and gold medal winners from the fourth annual wine of Chile awards, held earlier this year in Santiago. The tastings are open between 1000 and 1600 on all three days, with no booking required.

'Extremes of Chile - Bío Bío & Elqui', meanwhile, will highlight two of the new, up-and-coming, cool climate vineyard regions in Chile. The seminar (LIWSF seminar theatre S8) will run from 1045 - 1145 on the Wednesday. Contact to book a place.

Wine Intelligence (stand I27) will use this year's fair to hold a number of seminars. 'The on-trade report 2007: Are you being served two?' will look at the on-trade in the UK, and will present data collected during the mystery dining in over 40 UK restaurants. The seminar will be held on the Wednesday between 0930 and 1030 at the Waterfront Rooms.

Later on the Wednesday, at the Wine Intelligence stand, the directors of the wine industry analyst will be on hand to answer the questions "you always wanted to ask". The Directors' Clinic takes place from 1630 to 1800.
