Having not had an opportunity to jet off to some exquisite vineyard region for a while I am particularly excited by the fact that quite a few of our producers and my friends are coming over to London for The Real Wine fair. This does not come without it's logistical issues however, vigneron do not seem to be the most organised people when having to deal with non production challenges. Samples lost in the post; samples not sent; tickets not booked; hotels not booked; and that's just one of them!
Anyway, we have eight domains represented by the person who actually make the wine, and myself and colleagues will pretend to be the other three (watch out for strange accents and berets) and I am so proud of what we have on offer (for more details see www.therealwinefair.com) as they stand shoulder to shoulder with many of the greatest wine producers in the world next week.
This is going to be a great fair, with plenty going on and some terrific food and visual entertainment so please come along on Sunday if you can, I believe there are still tickets available.
I am off to Spain in Early June, to Galicia, but will review the highlights of the fair in a week or two and hope to see you there.
