OK, this is a plug. For an event of which I’m one of the organizing team. But I just wanted to bring everyone’s attention to the International Sparkling Wine Symposium 2013, which is being held at Denbies in a couple of weeks’ time.
There’s a stunning line-up of speakers, so if you have any interest in the business of sparkling wine at all, you should be there for this two day event. It is the third time we have run it, and it is just getting better each time. We don’t make any money from it (do you know how much it costs to run events like these?), but so far we’ve managed not to lose any. We just think it’s a worthwhile event for an important (and sometimes neglected) segment of the wine trade.
