10th anniversary Occitanie Annual Trade Tasting brings organic wines and innovation from South of France to London
The Occitanie Annual Trade Tasting returns to celebrate its 10th edition [after three years away] to present the diverse wines from the south of France in a brand new London venue. Twenty producers and three importers will show how much has been steadily progressing in the world of Occitanie winemaking and will feature over 300 chosen wines from the largest wine producing region in the world. This year’s line-up focuses on innovation, organic and sustainable production. Visiting producers will show new wines not yet available in the UK, and importers will show latest vintages. Masterclasses by Occitanie expert Matthew Stubbs MW will put into context the strong and distinctive appeal of these wines for the UK market, from entry level to top end. UK wine professionals, including importers, retailers, sommeliers, journalists, wine merchants and agents are welcome to register now: https://suddefrance.co.uk/annualtasting2022/
Producers and winemakers coming from the Languedoc, Roussillon, South-West and the Rhône Valley include well-established co-operatives and negociants, as well as artisanal producers looking for distribution. The sunny South of France mood is reflected by the bright and airy top floor venue, The View at The Royal College of Surgeons of England, 38-43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London WC2A 3PE (Holborn tube).
Isabelle Kanaan, Executive Director for the Bureau de la Région Occitanie in London, comments, “Our 2022 calendar of events will resume and will present a fresh year of initiatives. We, our producers and importers very much look forward to meeting and supporting the wine trade as consumer business picks up again. There are opportunities to discover the progress and experimentation that has been going on quietly in the region, and our Occitanie Annual Trade Tasting will be an essential diary date to discover all the latest happenings directly from the producers.”
