London Wine Fair

11 April, 2016

Sister house Fonseca will present the youthful Fonseca Guimaraens 1998 vintage along with a black fruit-laced Fonseca 1985 vintage, the full-bodied Bin 27 and the organic Terra Prima.

Croft Pink has a new, square-shouldered 50cl bottle with a silver twist cap.


Domaines Paul Mas returns to the fair with a new range of sulphur-free wines.

The Languedoc-based producer will be showcasing the 2015 vintage of the Cuvée Secrète red, a sulphite-free blend of Merlot/Cabernet Franc, in addition to the 2015 Cuvée Secrète Chardonnay.

The Cuvée Secrète range on display also includes: a Minervois La Liviniere and a Clairette du Languedoc, which is a little known AOP situated to the north of Pézénas. The grape produces fresh, aromatic and fruit driven wines, an attractive cousin of the now trendy Picpoul de Pinet, making it an ideal summer aperitif and seafood pairing.

Staffing crisis could open opportunities

The pandemic has thrown many challenges at bar owners over the past couple of years and the ones that survived the various lockdowns and restrictions deserve a pat on the back. However, while revenues are returning and bars are beginning to recruit once more, we’ve come up against a whole new set of problems, one of which is a global starring crisis.
