Enotria & Coe rethinks approach to LWF

Published:  29 April, 2019

Enotria & Coe has revised its approach to the London Wine Fair (LWF) to “rethink and reshape the traditional concept of wines on a stand".

E&C plans to bring its portfolio “to life” by holding a series of masterclass sessions featuring producers and industry leaders including Alessio Planeta, Olivier Dupré, President of Champagne house Alfred Gratien, Jon Pepper MW and Kathrine Larsen MS.

It will also highlight a range of wines from estates and producers, including Trimbach and Planeta, and focus on premium Spanish wines, Burgundy versus cool climate Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, Italian icons, world-class whites and chilled reds, as well as a session on the spirits of the moment with Audemus and Regal Rogue.

Harriet Kininmonth, E&C’s director of buying, will lead a tasting featuring a selection of wines from E&C’s portfolio of natural wines, while the last hour of each day will be dedicated to a free-pour session featuring Rieslings from around the world and a range of craft beers and ciders from boutique regional brewers.

“We are delighted to be part of LWF this year, and to be trying something a bit different,” said E&C’s managing director Ants Rixon. “It’s a great opportunity to truly showcase our stellar portfolio, including stalwarts like Planeta, Henschke and Trimbach and more recent recruits to the E&C family including Alfred Gratien. The programme really does highlight the best of the best, and we think that this is what people want from the fair.”

LWF’s Hannah Tovey said: “We are thrilled to have Enotria & Coe back on board for this year’s fair. The fact that big industry names are coming back to the show illustrates that confidence in the market is returning. We are confident that E&C’s programme has something for everyone from some outstanding producers, and we’re looking forward to a very exciting and productive three days.”
