My Wine Week... In Pictures  Add/Read Comments

Snooth Wine Search:


This week has been the most important in the British wine trade calendar, especially for those members of the Circle of Wine Writers. The three day London International Wine Fair with its accompanying flurry of parties, private tastings and get-togethers was held at Excel in London and the Circle of Wine Writers held their annual dinner and a pre-dinner Wine and Charcuterie Tasting last Monday.

Just one day at the London show for me but plenty of wines tasted and lovely people met, one after show party (a Bisol Prosecco Aperitivo tasting at the Wine Theatre, Southwark) and of course the Circle's dinner and tasting. Sorry the pictures are not that great - low light being the main culprit.

First the Circle of Wine Writers Charcuterie Tasting. That's Wink Lorch (of Wine Travel Guides) at the table in front.

And the Catavino duo, Ryan and Gabriella

Then the Circle Dinner. Here we have Fiona Beckett (matchingfoodandwine) on the right and Gabriella of Catavino on the left over looking a particularily fine chunk of aged Gouda.

Not many pictures from the Wine Show being more interested in tasting but here we have Greg and Francesca from NakedWines (of note because they embrace the social media 'scene')

And Andre Ribeirinho of wine social site Adegga

See also this picture from Bibendum Wines showing thirstforwine, thewinesleuth, johners, efowler and Jeanne the Cooksister. That's me being expressive in the centre.

Finally, at the Wine Threatre with the energetic chap from Bisol.

Great to see you Andrew!!! Although our time was limited, I'm elated that we at least had a few moments here and there to chat. Let's hope for another excuse to all see one another soon!

Wish we had more time to talk. As always good to see you and I look forward to the next time!

Hi Andrew, really happy to have finally met you! I hope we can have a relaxed glass of wine next time. See you soon.

And great to meet you guys too; I will be in Lisbon so hopefully more time to chat and relax and perhaps I can arrange a weekend in Barcelona next year too...

"That's me being expressive in the centre." Haha, you're too much! Thanks for sharing your images from the event. Few things rival the energy of a building filled with people that hold similar passions.
