Ubifrance looks to find UK distribution for nearly 30 wineries at London tasting

Published:  15 May, 2014

Nearly 30 independent French wineries looking for distribution in the UK will be showing their wines to the trade on May 22 as part of the latest tasting organised by Ubifrance and the French Trade Commission.

Next week's tasting will take place at Ubifrance's offices on 28-28 Haymarket, London and will see 27 French wine exporters  from all areas of the country.

It is the latest in a series of events organised by Ubifrance that are part of the French Trade Commission's wider brief to develop more trade between the UK and France, be it through bespoke B2B events, seminars, tastings and buyer's trips to different regions of France.

The May 22 tasting will see producers from Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Champagne, Languedoc, Loire Valley, Provence, Rhone Valley and the South West of France.

The biggest contingent comes from Bordeaux with six members of the Syndicat des Bordeaux  including Vignoble Boidron, Vignobles Chaigne et Fils, Chateau et Cie and Sarl Richard Mestreguilhem. Other Bordeaux players include La Passion des Terroirs, Vignobles Bouillac.  The Syndicat et Bordeaux Supérieur will also be showing five white wines (AOP Bordeaux Blanc) from their "Oscars de l'été", an annual competition judged by an all-female jury.

There will be four Champagne houses at the tasting including Champane Leclerc Briant, Champagne Mathelin and Champagne Moutardier.

The acclaimed Maison Albert Bichot from B urgundy will also be showing a selection of its wines along with Roger Champault and Vins Bellier from the Loire.

Cave du Marmandais represents the south west of France with Chantonet and Chateau de Gragnos coming from the Languedoc. The Rhone is represented by Domaine de La Ganse, Domaine de Panisse and Domaine Salel Renaud.

The tasting is specifically targeted at independent merchants and sommeliers.
