Top reasons to go to LIWF 2012

New discoveries 

The new and unusual will be a running theme at the show. The focus of the fair is very much on discovery: new wines and spirits, new producers, emerging countries and regions, new vintage releases, seminars, debates and masterclasses.

Some of the less well known countries that produce wine are back and several have taken larger stands, chief among them Turkey and Lebanon. However, Russia, Moldova and the Ukraine will also have bigger stands and India is set to return too.

On the the IWSC stand next week will see the launch of the 2012 Northern Hemisphere Wine Results. There are also a number of  tastings including Tom Cannavan  presenting on medal winning Lebanese wines and Lynne Sherriff MW tasting some of the IWSC’s top South African winners.

A new feature this year will be the LIWF “matchmaker tool”, an online device designed to pick up on producers who are attending the fair without any form of UK representation and matching them with those registered to attend that will best suit their needs.
