London Wine Fair has shared its Wine Writers Edit ahead of its 40th live show on June 7 – 9.
The Wine Writers Edit took place for the first time last year, when the London Wine Fair was 100% digital. As the fair returns to London Olympia in 2022, this is the first year where visitors will be able to taste the full line up.
This year’s Edit includes a list of 30 wines that have been selected by 10 wine writers: Tim Atkin MW, Oz Clarke, Jane Parkinson, Brad Horne, Aleesha Hansel, Hannah Milnes, Jamie Goode, Joe Wadsack, Sophia Longhi and Victoria Moore. All of the wines on the list will be exhibited at the show as the writers’ “must discover” drinks.
13 different countries are represented in the Wine Writers Edit, while around 2,800 wines are currently listed at the fair, spanning 100 regions and 300 grape varieties.
