The London Wine Fair will take place June 7 to 9 this year and is on track to host an unprecedented number of wine-producing countries this year. Along with all the large wine-producing countries and organizations, participants can also expect to see emerging regions.
Among the first-time exhibitors are Murcia & Galicia, Armenia, Romania and Portuguese region, Setubal. Wines of Ukraine will also have a special destination stand in the heart of the Trading Floor to showcase Ukrainian wines. As winemakers from Ukraine are unlikely to be able to attend due to the ongoing conflict. The stand will also be hosted by international wine industry professionals, including Sarah Abbot MW, Brad Horne, and Irina Gridina, who have volunteered to help champion the country’s wines. Several Ukrainian wineries have already sent their wines, which are currently being shipped to the UK.
Wines of Armenia, exhibiting for the first time this year, will occupy a pavilion hosting 13 wineries, while Setubal, a region south of Lisbon and which borders Tejo, will also have a strong and exciting presence with offerings from 11 wineries.
Wine Australia will be making a triumphant return, having not exhibited for more than a decade; they will bring 26 wineries over to exhibit – all of them looking to export to the UK for the first time.
ProChile is also returning, and France, Italy and Spain will all have a sizeable presence at the fair this year. Additionally, Wines of Georgia, and Greece will be back, with highlights including wines from Crete and Central Macedonia.
Overall, there will be 30 wine-producing countries attending, making the 40th London Wine Fair the biggest and most comprehensive yet.
Event director Hannah Tovey said: “We are around two months out from the doors opening and the show is filling up beautifully. The offering has never been so broad, with huge scope for visitors to discover new territories, producers and wines, alongside a raft of spirits, beers, ciders and non-alcoholic drinks.”
