Once again, Virginia Wines are taking their place on the world stage at the London International Wine Fair and this year they have a bigger presence than ever before.
Virginia Wines are located at Booth Q20 and this year they are featuring representatives from 9 wineries pouring 31 wines.
The wineries represented this year are:
King Family Vineyards
Michael Shaps Wines
Veritas Vineyard & Winery
White Hall Vineyards
This is the 5th year that Virginia Wine has been represented at the London International Wine Fair. Breaux Vineyards is one of the wineries that has been there all five years, I asked Jennifer Breaux her thoughts on the event:
We're proud to be on the worlds stage at the London International Wine Fair and grateful that we have the following in the UK that demands our presence there. With gratitude to our distributor to the UK, Chris Parker of New Horizons Wines, we're proud to say we are not only selling our wines successfully but also getting recognized by world-renowned writers and critics. This is the 5th year we've attended the fair and the 4th year we've entered the Decanter World Wine Awards, also held in the UK with results being given at LIWF. We've medaled each year and hold those decorations in the most high regard. It's a different market; it's the worlds most competitive wine market. If we succeed there, we consider ourselves successful overall
Congratulations to all of the wineries represented and if you are at the LIWF, stop by booth Q20 and say hi!
Lawrence Camp, who is representing Breaux Vineyards, added this quote:
This fair is unlike any other opportunity for Virginia wines... We are able to put our wines up against the best in the entire world and hear specific feedback and reactions to the products from some of the best palates in the business. We are hearing over and over again that our booth is all the "buzz" around the fair. The word is getting around the globe on Virginia wines - they are world-class, they are surprising expert drinkers regularly, and they are only getting better with each passing vintage. I'm incredibly honored and proud to have the chance to represent our state and it's wines in this amazing and exciting time for our industry.
