The largest fair in the world dedicated to fortified wine returned to Church House Conference Centre this week.
The Big Fortified Tasting attracted 50 of the most renowned producers making the line up as spectacular as ever. Open to bona fide members of the wine trade, the event attracted visitors from the UK and overseas. It is the 2nd consecutive year that the event has been staged at Church House Conference Centre and featured a range of masterclasses tutored by industry specialists including the President of the Sherry Institute and President of the Port Wine Institute, as well as renowned winemakers. Guests were also able to discover rare Madeiras, and fortified wine vintages dating back to the early part of the 20th century.
Danny Cameron, Managing Director of The Big Fortified Tasting, said: “We have been holding our event at Church House for the second year now, and once again the event attracted a large number of wine connoisseurs. I was particularly impressed with Church House team and received many compliments from visitors on how the layout of the Assembly Hall allowed them move around these wonderful wines with greater ease.”
Church House Conference Centre General Manager Robin Parker comments: “Fortified wines are very often given cursory attention in traditional tastings. The Big Fortified Tasting provides an amazing opportunity to put some of the great classics in the spotlight. We were delighted to welcome back an event which is clearly becoming a must-attend in the wine calendar.”
