Blog: Olly WehringLIWF & Distil – All the Fun of the Fair – Day Two

Olly Wehring | 19 May 2010

We're into the business end - day two of the London International Wine Fair is in full swing. Yesterday saw the usual grizzling here at ExCel: Getting here's a nightmare; Food and drink is extortionate; The queue for the cloakroom is outrageous; The spirits section is shrinking.

What is forgotten every year is that, these grizzles are pretty immoveable.

They're here every year and they're part of the experience. And they always, ALWAYS disappear by the second day. As usual, the vibe in the hall is positive and business-like.

Let's make lots of money.
