The week in pictures

Not sure if anyone noticed, people barely talked about it, but there was some kind of London-based wine fair at Kensington Olympia at the start of the week.

And boy was it a doozy this year, so we’re going to talk about it for the next three slides (for more photos of celebrities, go straight to no. 4).

In spite of our mid-brexit gloom, the London Wine Fair saw a remarkable 17% boost in visitors this year. Notable faces included The Wine Show‘s Joe Fattorini, who is due to head up the London sales team at Fields, Morris & Verdin next month, Benevolent CEO Chris Porter, Hatch Mansfield MD Patrick McGrath MW, and WSTA chair Dan Jago.
