8 people you see at every wine show

The Wine & Spirits Show is just over two weeks away now, and where members of the industry and consumers will come together under one roof to taste over 500 wines sourced from all over the world.

We’ve been to our fair share of trade events over the past few years, from ProWein, to the London Wine Fair, to category-specific tastings, to showcases from the likes of Bibendum.

Ahead of our Wine & Spirits Show, we spoke to drinks journalists, marketing experts, sommeliers and industry folk working their own trade shows to find out the characters who stick in their heads after every event.

From the sartorially questionable to the quite sozzled, see if you recognise any of these characters.

Think we’ve missed something? Let us know in the comments!
