Sud de France – register now

Published:  07 October, 2022

Registrations are now open for the Sud de France Top 100 Discovery tasting – Part II – where members of the trade are invited to meet producers and winemakers.

Now in its tenth year, the October event will bring together the full line-up of the 100 winning wines from the landmark 10th edition of the competition, as well as additional 100+ select wines from 16 of the winning producers. 

Visitors can expect to see a quality showing of prestige wines, as well as challenger styles from organic and sustainable production, and a few low and no alcohol wines. Independent boutique wineries as well as acclaimed negociants and cooperatives will present their wines. Most of these wines seek distribution and some are complete newcomers to the UK.

The Languedoc and the Roussillon vineyards, part of the Rhône Valley and the South-West, comprise the largest production region in the world. Wines from each of these sub regions will be on show, with wines selected by chairman of the judges Tim Atkin MW and 13 principal trade buyers and writers in a series of blind tastings.

Entries from 97 producers were tasted in order to settle on the Top 100 wines.

Register here.
