NZ wine to host annual London tasting next week

Back for the 38th year running, New Zealand Wine is hosting its annual tasting for both the trade and consumers on 16 January, showcasing over 400 wines in two sessions with a number of focused masterclasses.

Taking place on 16 January, the tasting will celebrate 200 years since vines were planted in New Zealand. There will be wines on show from the regions across New Zealand, including Gisborne, Hawke’s Bay, Wairarapa, Nelson, Marlborough, North Canterbury and Central Otago.

The event is being held in two sessions, one for the wine trade from 10am to 5pm and one for the general public, from 6pm to 9pm.

Masterclasses will be held throughout the day, featuring key personalities including Ronan Sayburn MS, Rebecca Gibb MW and David Kermode.
