Inverarity Morton at London Wine Fair 2019
LONDON WINE FAIR, 20-22 MAY 2019
Visitor numbers to the London Wine Fair reached an all-time high in 2018: up 17% to 14,250, and we made our debut at the event. We return to Olympia in Hammersmith later this month for the 39th annual Fair with another carefully curated selection of wines from our portfolio. Find us on stand C41, where we will be joined by the following producers:
Amisfield, New Zealand (UK agency) – this multi-award-winning Central Otago winery is most famous for its Pinot Noir, and new listings this year include its flagship RKV Pinot Noir plus Riesling and Pinot Gris.
Bodegas Campillo, Spain (UK agency) – one of the country’s premier producers, specialising in older aged wines and also innovating with groundbreaking products such as El Niño and Campillo 57. Campillo makes wines of consistently high quality and we have been fervent ambassadors of the brand for many years.
Bodega Granbazán, Spain (UK agency) – a new agency from Rias Biaxas and an internationally renowned producer of Albariño, most famed for extended lees aging to give a unique concentration and texture to its wines.
Chocolate Box, Australia (UK agency) – Chocolate Box reached quasi-cult status when it launched in the UK , its vintage starlet pin-up girls on the bottle labels causing quite a stir. The wine itself shook up the market by being the first premium Aussie range to sell like hotcakes with its back story of big red wines that match with chocolate.
Goyenechea, Argentina (UK agency) – we have been working with this family-run winery located in San Rafael, Mendoza for over 20 years. Malbec is the hallmark wine at Goyenechea but the family has also just launched a Torrontes from new plantings.
Sacred Hill, New Zealand (Scottish agency) – Sacred Hill is widely recognised as one of New Zealand’s most distinguished wineries. Focusing on the production of premium ‘handcrafted’ varietal wines, the company’s estate vineyards are located in New Zealand’s leading grape-growing regions of Marlborough, Hawke’s Bay and Central Otago.
Sacred Hill not only makes brilliant reds, but also some pretty serious whites too. And with some producers from that region charging a hefty price, Sacred Hill offers excellent value within its three-tiered range of wines. Now launching into England and we expect them to be very popular!
Sea Change, Italy (UK agency) – Sea Change was a partnership we launched earlier this year with 10 International and is undoubtedly one of the most forward-thinking wine projects of all time. Minimising its environmental impact, the bottles are lightweight and feature no plastic at all – the cork closure is 100% recyclable. Moreover, donations from every sale go to two incredible charities at the forefront of ocean conservation. Sea Change is, in our opinion, the standard-bearer for all producers in working towards a more sustainable future.
Torreón de Paredes, Chile (UK agency) – our relationship with this family in the Rengo Valley goes back over 30 years. The highly acclaimed Reserva Privada Merlot has won best Merlot of Chile several times.
Vigna Dogarina, Italy (UK agency) – new to our portfolio for 2019, Vigna Dogarina is a family-owned single estate producing single vintage Prosecco – far superior quality than standard Prosecco.
