In addition, a master class will be held by expert Mark Davidson, on Sunday at 2pm in Hall 13 under the title ‘History, Evolution, Revolution’. A 30-minute featured tasting will also be held each day of the show with food and wine matched to respective topics.

Around 1,000 wines will be on offer from across a spectrum of multi-brand owners, co-operatives and independent winemakers. The group will also host a 'World of Discovery' tasting zone at Hall 9, B48, for a more relaxed tasting experience.
