Meet the producers at London Wine Fair
It’s time again for London Wine Fair and we’ll be showing a fantastic selection of wines from around the world. We’ll also be welcoming some of our favourite producers. Here’s a sneak preview of who you’ll be able to meet at the stand.
Mario, Martina and Elisa are the ‘Orange Generation’ – the fourth generation of Piccinis to run the family business. They’ve brought it up to date with modern winemaking, created an iconic orange label and an incredible sense of fun. But always with an intimate connection to the vineyards and a link to the traditions started by Angiolo Piccini more than 125 years ago.
With its instantly recognisable label and enjoyable style, Piccini has become a firm favourite among wine drinkers and represents the modern face of Tuscany.
It’s impossible to talk about Argentinean wine without mentioning either Nicolas Catena or one of his wines. No-one has done more to put Mendoza on the map as one of the world’s most fashionable grape varieties.
This is a winery that never stands still and never compromises on quality. From the varietal range right up to the flagship Nicolas Catena Zapata, these are wines that always over-deliver. Catena will be showcasing their Altaland range, which comes from the mountainous, cool-climate north of Argentina.
Vignerons Associes is a group of winegrowers who make great quality wine from the Rhone Valley and Languedoc regions. They are united in their passion for the land, respect for the environment and expressing the individually of their respective terroirs.
Blends is a collection of quality-focussed wineries located in some of the world’s top wine regions. They’ll be launching their latest Argentinean brand, the flamboyant Comuna, at London Wine Fair.
Cellier des Princes
Created in 1925, Cellier des Princes is the only cooperative cellar in Chateauneuf du Pape. They produce high quality Chateauneuf du Pape and Cotes du Rhone, sourcing wines from a large range of terroirs for consistency of quality from year to year.
Compagnie de Burgondie
This is a brand new Cooperative created by Bailly Lapierre and Les Vignerons de Buxy. Bailly Lapierre is renowned for its Cremants de Bourgogne and still wines from the Auxerrois region, while Les Vignerons de Buxy is famous for its Bourgogne, Villages and Premiers Cru wines from the Cote Chalonnaise
