New London venue and new look for New Zealand Annual Tasting 24 Nov 2017
New Zealand Winegrowers will hold their Annual Trade Tasting in January at a new venue, and with it a new look and features for visitors.
The tasting, themed Flavours of New Zealand, will be held on Monday 15th January 2018 at the new venue of Westminster Bridge - County Hall.
Small focussed seminars will be held to explore the different varieties and styles New Zealand has to offer. Led by Peter McCombie, MW and Rebecca Gibb, MW these short 30 minute seminars will include Diversity of Sauvignon Blanc, Unexpected Varieties, Different Shades of Pinot, and Classic Reds, as well as a consumer discovery seminar in the evening.
Another new feature will be The Masters Selection table. Fifteen Masters of Wine and Master Sommeliers from around the world, who have visited New Zealand recently, were asked to nominate their top three choices. Nearly 100 wines were nominated and from this list, sixteen wines have been selected to best showcase a wide range of styles, varieties and regions.
“We are looking forward to showcasing New Zealand wines in the new venue and welcoming the trade to one of the first major tastings of the year,” comments Chris Stroud, Marketing Manager Europe for New Zealand Winegrowers. “New Zealand is as popular as ever in the UK market, so we are delighted to bring in some new features for the tasting to highlight our broad range of styles.”
New Zealand wines continue to grow at an impressive rate in the UK market, with over 15% growth in volume and 14% in value.* New Zealand still has the highest average price of any country at £7.10, well above the national average of £5.57.
As with all New Zealand Winegrowers events and tastings, all wines poured will be sustainably certified.
