The Wine & Spirits Show is just over two weeks away now, and where members of the industry and consumers will come together under one roof to taste over 500 wines sourced from all over the world.
This year we’ve been to our fair share of trade events, from the London Wine Fair, to category-specific tastings, to showcases from the likes of Bibendum and the Institute of Masters of Wine.
Ahead of our Wine & Spirits Show this October, we spoke to drinks journalists, marketing experts, sommeliers and industry folk working their own trade shows to find out the characters who stick in their heads after every event.
From the sartorially questionable to the quite sozzled, see if you recognise any of these characters.
