Bibendum to launch 100 Old World wines

Published:  05 September, 2017

Bibendum is gearing up to introduce 100 new European wines at its autumn tasting.

Wines range from Bordeaux and Languedoc to Puglia and Rheinhessen, with a focus on latest trends and emerging regions from across Europe.

The new launches hail from 13 new producers across the Old World, from Masseria Li Velli in Puglia and Chateau d’Arche in Sauternes, to more off the beaten track locations such as Joh. Bapt. Schäfer in Nahe and Weingut Glatzer in Carnuntum.

Austrian Reds will be an area of focus for the Conviviality-owned company, highlighted by new addition Weingut Glatzer.

Located in Carnuntum, east of Vienna and south of the river Danube, Walter Glatzer’s vineyards cover 54ha and produce fruit-driven reds.

The on-trade supplier has been using its insights tool, Mode, to outline trends this year.

One of those trends was the rise in popularity of Austrian reds, the company said, with over 1 in 3 wine bars currently listing one.

Other new producers include Joh. Bapt. Schäfer, in Nahe - one of Germany's smaller wine regions – and Chateau d'Arche in Bordeaux.

Chateau d’Arche was established in 1580 by Henry d’Arche, who was dean of the city of Bordeaux at the time.

Masseria Li Veli’s Apuglian range includes six reds and two white wines, including using a selection of wines made from extremely rare, ancient grape varieties.

Bibendum's autumn tasting will be held at Phonica Records, London on Tuesday 12th September, from 2pm – 6pm.
