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

Thierry's (stand C42) will be inviting winemakers Ken Forrester, Danie De Wet, Jose Zuccardi and Gerard Bertrand to the stand to taste their wines with Fair visitors. The French wine importer will be showcasing brands including Chamarré, Caves St Pierre and Mont Tauch, as well as highlighting their portfolio of non-French brands such as Red Truck, Terra Organica and El Prado Spritzer.

Plaimont (stand I40/1, S30) is bringing the new vintage of the Rive Haute regional labels to the UK for the first time. Specifically aimed at the independent trade, the range represents all the regions of SW France. Also on-stand will be the Florenbelle range, and '1907' - a Madiran wine created by a "culmination of efforts from individual growers in Gascony and the Plaimont cooperative."

ZGM (stand G20) will be bringing new wines from France, Spain and Chile to London, as well as an organic Italian range and premium German wine Belliccia. Plus the launch of Entwine, a new range of lower-alcohol premium wine-based drinks.

Wine Association Slovenija (stand Q92) will be presenting wines that have already entered the UK on-trade and introducing some of the more traditional and indigenous varietals present in the wines, such as Refosk, Rebula and Sipon.
