Piper Heidsieck, iDealwine and Viñalba confirmed for The City Wine Show

Champagne house Piper Heidsieck, online wine auctioneer iDealwine and Argentine winery Viñalba have confirmed their attendance at the second edition of The City Wine Show, taking place on 13 and 14 April.

Run by the drinks business team, The City Wine Show is a wine fair designed to encourage consumers to explore the world of wine in a relaxed environment.

Taking place on Friday 13 April (1-9pm) and Saturday 14 April (1-8pm), it will be held in the heart of the City of London in Stationers’ Hall.

Last year, over 1,300 drinks enthusiasts attended the inaugural City Wine Show, and in 2018, we’re expecting another hoard of keen aficionados who are eager to try the latest releases in the trade.

Open to both the trade and consumers (the trade have free entry between 1pm and 5pm on 13 April), the show is for anyone in London who is interested in drinks.

Returning for the show’s second year, Piper Heidsieck will be opening its Prestige Cuvée, Rare 2002, which has only been produced eight times since 1976, at intervals throughout the City Wine Show.

Also back this year is iDealwine who will be hosting a blind tasting of four different wines from 1pm to 9pm on Friday and from 1pm until 8pm on Saturday. The wines will be revealed at 4pm and 7pm on both days.

Argentine winery Viñalba, whose range includes expressions from both Mendoza and Patagonia, will pouring eight wines, allowing you to compare the different between the two regions.

Like last year, there will be a selection of Prestige Masterclasses featuring the likes of Pol Roger, E&J Gallo and iDealwine, and hosted by editor-in-chief of the drinks business, Patrick Schmitt MW.

As well as exhibitor stands, guests can sample the latest releases in our New Product Zone and taste hundreds of award-winning wines in the Discovery Zone.

Official cheese providers to the Queen, Paxton and Whitfield, will once again be offering the ideal accompaniment to all the wine, while guests will be rewarded with a free G&T from the Gin and Tonic Bar upon entry.

This year the official charity of the show is the brilliant Walkabout Foundation, which provides wheelchairs to disadvantaged communities in developing countries.
