Matchmaking for the unrepresented

06 April, 2007

The International Wine Challenge is holding a dedicated tasting for wines with no UK distribution seeking an importer.

The Discovery Tasting, on May 2 at London's Barbican, will include medal winners, trophy winners and some champion wines. Last year, wines from 25 countries, including 38 gold medal winners, were on show.

Trade buyers will have a "rare opportunity to taste at their leisure" and find new wines to add to their portfolios.

Wines will be laid out by country, region, grape variety and style. The free tasting is open to buyers, agents, wholesalers, somme liers and journalists. E-mail iwc@william-reed.co.uk, or check www.internationalwinechallenge.com.

Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
