Back At The London Wine Show For One Day Only!

April 2018

Due to much demand from customers in and around London we can confirm that we will be back at the London Wine Fair in May – but for just one day only!

That’s right, our likely lads John Critchley, Graham Archibald, David O’Neil and Mat O’Connell will all be on hand from stand C20/1 on Monday 21st May to showcase a selection of our latest and best wines, fizz, sherry and beer plus our new H&B Cote de Provence draught summer solution and two incredible Vermouths which we’re tipping to be a big trend.

Situated in the new section of the show – The Trading Quarter – the area will be part of a ‘Hidden Gems’ day that will be focusing on unique products showcasing exciting new grapes, styles, packaging, serving solutions and production methods.

Sales Director Graham Archibald said:

“It’s great to be part of this exciting new segment of the London Wine Fair and we look forward to releasing a host of innovative, quirky new products to the market in time for summer.  We pride ourselves on continuously adding and developing our portfolio to ensure operators can keep ahead of trends and always retain a point of difference.”

What’s new and being showcased?

Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence Rosé

The happy marriage of Grenache and Cinsault is now available in key keg format for the perfect draught summer wine solution. Delicate floral lilac and sweet clementine notes with a dash of pink grapefruit. A little splash of Syrah adds a touch of raspberry. This delicious rosé adds colour and zest to any meal and life to any table, sophisticated, modern and rustic alike.

Vermouth

A drink that seems to be getting cooler by the day, we will be launching two incredible but totally different brands at the show.

Padro & Co, Tarragona

The wine-making origins of the Padró family date back to the year 1886 and to the village of Bràfim (Tarragona), which was, at the time, a busy agricultural hub with around 400 inhabitants.  Their Vermouth is made from a unique infusion of aromatic herbs and aged in the barrel before bottling at their winery.  They start this vermouth off with an initial infusion consisting only of mountain herbs noted for their small roots and very aromatic flowers. The vermouth then absorbs these aromas whilst resting for the next two years in wooden barrels.  Following the aging process, a second herb formula is added, a blend of plant bark and roots which increase the intensity of the flavours and give the vermouth its bitter essence.

 

Forzudo, León

The best wine, Doña Blanca, selected spices and a wine cellar with more than 200 years of tradition. This is their recipe. The lightness of a flower, the power of the flavour. Without complexity. The tradition of the classic Vermouth, made in modernity. Twelve great botanicals, one of them very secret… ready to merge and surprise with the best Doña Blanca wine of the wonderful Camponaraya cooperative!!!
