Quick Update from the London International Wine Fair 2009

London Interntional Wine FairI’m currently writing you from our quaint little corner where the European Wine Blogger Conference stand is housed at the London International Wine Fair. These three days have been jam packed with amazing talks with everyone from producers to retailers, and from press to critics, all eager and fascinated with social media’s role and influence in the wine trade. And to be honest, we’re exhausted, but we’re also amazed at the positive feedback we’ve received. Starting next week, we’ll be posting more information about the the individual talks we’ve given, the wines we’ve tasted, tastings we’ve hosted, overall impressions of the event itself, and of course, loads of interviews.

For now, feel free to watch live video and twitterfall of the conference at www.catavino.net/londonwinefair.

Additionally, I’ve attached a few interviews with the generic body of Portuguese wines, Viniportugal. Enjoy the videos and please leave comments below if you have anything you’d like us to research while we’re here!

Cheers,

Gabriella Opaz

    My daughter and I will be in Portugal from the end of September through the first week in October. What wineries, especially those that are not port, do you recommend? We will be staying at the Quinta Nova in Duro.

    Thank you for your assistance!

      Hi Diana,

      I would love you to have you visiting our winery. We are located in S. João da Pesqueira, 30 minutes away from Quinta Nova. I have to confess that we make Port, but we also make Douro wines! I think you can enjoy both!! Drop me a line if you want to come over to oscar at quevedo port wine dot com
