Enotria's annual tasting to be biggest yet

Published:  11 February, 2014

Enotria's annual tasting is set to be its biggest yet, featuring more than 700 wines from 100 producers and 15 countries.

The event, which takes place on February 25 at London's Saatchi Gallery, will also have a series of focus rooms, where guests can try a special selection of wines "designed for maximum engagement and enjoyment".

Over 100 new wines will be launched at the tasting, and a number of new producers, including Strandveld, Fowles Wine, Burch Family Wines, Bodegas Covi?as, Omero Cellars, Antonio Caggiano, Domaine Henri Delagrange and Champagne R Dumont & Fils.

At the event one of the rooms will also house a gallery dedicated to Enotria's evolution over the past 40 years  - from Italian agent to one of  the UK's leading specialist wine importers.

As the fastest growing category in the UK, there will be a room dedicated to sparkling wine. It is also planning to make its more boutique wines easier to find, with a boutique showcase featuring wines "from Patagonia to Puglia, and from Monterey to the Mornington Peninsula".

Alison Levett, Enotria's chief executive, said: "Our portfolio encapsulates all that is great and good about the world of wine - small artisan producers, iconic names and wineries that are true pioneers in their regions. This really is a fantastic opportunity for our customers to meet producers, discover new wines and re-acquaint themselves with old favourites.

 "There is a commitment to quality among our producers that is hugely exciting. As guests explore on the day I hope they'll be inspired by the bevy of talented people, their wines and their stories."

Last week Bibendum's managing director Michael Saunders announced it would no longer be running a large-scale tasting, saying it was no longer relevant for the industry. It will be offering smaller events instead.
