The Wine and Spirits Show, run by the drinks business and sister title The Spirits Business, has announced further exhibitors for its event in October, including Rhône with a new brut nature sparkling and the new delle Venezie DOC which is shaking things up for Pinot Grigio in northeastern Italy.
Launched by the team that brought you The City Wine Show, the Wine Show Chelsea and Spirited London, The Wine & Spirits Show will bring together the best wine and spirits under one roof.
The event will be open to both the trade and consumers and will take place over two days from 12 to 13 October in the heart of London at One Whitehall Place, part of five-star hotel the Royal Horseguards. Targeting wine enthusiasts based in London, around 2,000 members of the general public are expected to attend, alongside members of the wine and spirits trade.
The Wine & Spirits Show will offer one hall dedicated to wines, and another that will be focused entirely on spirits.
The Wine Hall will also feature the Global Masters Zone, showcasing the top medal-winning wines judged throughout the years in the drinks business Global Masters Series.
The Spirits Hall will feature everything from gin and whisky to Tequila, rum and Mezcal. This hall will also host The Spirits Masters Zone, which will be manned by The Spirits Business team and showcase the Spirits Masters competition medallists.
Both halls will feature a dedicated New Products Zone for both wines and spirits, which will showcase the hottest wines and spirits launched within the last 12 months, keeping guests up to speed on emerging trends and releases. Consumers will be asked to vote for their favourite new wine or spirits, with the winning brand set to receive a profile page in the magazine.
A Global Beer Tour zone will also offer guests the chance to sample a wide range of brews judged by db‘s expert panel as part of the Global Beer Competition in August.
As well as hundreds on wines and spirits available to sample, the event will also offer a series of expert masterclasses, on both wines and spirits, giving guests the chance to get under the skin of Champagne with Pol Roger or delve deeper into the world of fine wine with iDealwine.
A full schedule of masterclasses, which will be offered FREE on a first come first served basis, will be announced in due course.
The event will open from 1pm to 9pm on Friday, and from 1pm to 8pm on Saturday. To register for the trade event, which will run from 1pm to 5pm on Friday, please click here.
