Miles Beale CEO WSTA

The WSTA is hard-wired to support and enjoy a London Wine Fair that attracts the UK wine community in droves - as happened again this year.  We like seeing so many members - and would-be members! - in the capital city of the world's second largest wine importer.  Those we saw talked about strong footfall, high quality conversation and plans for next year - when we will know who has formed the next government and whether new Ministers see sense and maintain the wine easement.

Patrick McGrath CEO Hatch Mansfield

It’s been a really, really good three days. As good as last year, better probably. We’ve enlarged our stand; we knew we didn’t have enough space, and actually we’ve filled it, so it has been amazing.   We would have been really cramped if we hadn’t had the extra square footage. We’ve had a great mix of people: independents; national retail; national on-trade; fine wine merchants; travel retail. And I continue to be amazed that some of our competitors aren’t here.

Beyond Wines Ltd. & Liquid Diamond
Alex Green, Matthew Johnson Sales and Marketing Director, Commercial Director Beyond Wines Ltd. & Liquid Diamond

The Fair has been a huge success again for us at Beyond Wines. We had so many important meetings at The Fair, with more customers and trade luminaries than I can count. We have seen all the major buyers over the last three days, including from: Tesco; Aldi; Sainsbury; Waitrose; Morrisons; Matthew Clark; Molson Coors; Mitchells and Butlers; and LWC Drinks to name just a few. And it is testament to London Wine Fair that they were all gathered in one place over the three days. Why more companies don’t exhibit is beyond me.

Justin Liddle Managing Director Mentzendorff

We have hugely enjoyed the overall vibe of the fair and been delighted by the response to our stand which both showcased our portfolio and created an educational platform. We were very keen to show who we are and make new friends while having time to enjoy existing ones. I think we have fully accomplished this. Lots to build on for the future.

Robin Copestick Managing Director Freixenet Copestick

This year’s London Wine Fair has been exceptional. We have had an amazing amount of real quality customers to our stand.  Added to which, The Fair has a real sense of innovation and excitement.

Wines of South Africa
Jo Wehring Market Manager Wines of South Africa

Wines of South Africa returned to the London Wine Fair for the first time in several years, exhibiting for one day at the Pop-Up area. We had 14 tables in the zone, which was positioned in a great spot near the entrance. It is fair to say that the Wines of South Africa Pop Up was buzzing for the entire day. We were busier than we would ever have expected to be. We saw top buyers, trade and journalists. London is still such a hub for European wine business and this was a great opportunity to showcase all that South Africa can offer.

Richard Cochrane Managing Director Felix Solis UK

We have had a fantastic London Wine Fair. We’ve been coming here since I set up the company in the UK 11 years ago now, and I have to say this year, particularly Andrew had a new personal best for the most number of meetings at a London Wine Fair. So we are thrilled to bits. It has been a great Fair.

Buckingham Schenk Family
Craig Durham Managing Director Buckingham Schenk Family

It was excellent to be back at the London Wine Fair this year, celebrating our 50th Anniversary. The fair had a great energy, and it also saw us host our first Masterclass Session which was a wonderful success. The organisation and help from the London Wine Fair team made it a very smooth and highly enjoyable event for us, with lots of great discussions with visitors coming to try our portfolio of wines on the stand. Overall a fantastic industry event for the Buckingham Schenk Family.

Ben Carfagnini Managing Director Friarwood

Exhibiting at London Wine Fair has been an incredible opportunity to showcase the exceptional wines we exclusively represent in the UK.

The London Wine Fair Pop-Up is a great addition to the Show.  New Zealand Wine was delighted to take a space again this year at the Pop Up which provided us with an opportunity to showcase a large and diverse selection of wines to a keen and interested audience!  We had a very busy day on Monday and the feedback from the high number of visitors was very positive!

The Canned Wine Company
