Uncorked: The Wine Show 2007

Are you one of the millions of UK wine drinkers who want to learn more about wine to impress mates or a date, to choose wines confidently from a restaurant wine menu, to send back a bottle or challenge the sommelier, to match wines with food for home entertaining or family meals, to avoid boring grape varieties and explore new countries and styles? Well you’re not alone.

On 25 – 28 October 2007 the London Wine Show will be coming to Islington’s Design Centre for the country’s best excuse to have fun discovering the incredible world of wine.

Visitors can sample a choice of literally thousands of wines by the glass, including some of the best and most innovative wines in the world like Gordon Ramsay’s favourite Bordeaux Château Bauduc, Australia Penfold’s Estate, England’s Chapel Down, Malbec Rosé from Mendoza Argentina and crisp Pinot Gris from Tasmania. Where else can you quiz experts like London’s hippest sommelier, Matt Skinner, get inspired Christmas party ideas at the Tasting Theatre sessions, charm producers to negotiate cellar door rates, learn at lightening speed at Thresher’s 10 minute tasting school, find out about more about the trend for low alcohol wines and where to buy them, and for city slickers try their first wine auction and learn how to invest in wine or vineyards.
