Decanter 'Rising Stars'
Fine Wine Encounter

19th May 2001, Landmark Hotel, London

Many of you will no doubt be familiar with the very successful fine wine encounter that Decanter hosts each November at the Landmark Hotel. I've been for the last two years and found them to be among the best tastings that I've attended (see my report of the 2000 event). This year they've added a second event to the calendar, entitled the 'Rising Stars' Fine Wine Encounter, which looks equally promising.

50 of the world's exciting up-and-coming producers will be showing their wines at this event, and the list of producers attending includes Chain of Ponds (Adelaide Hills), Movia (Slovenia), Kunstler (Germany), Martinborough Vineyard (New Zealand), Primus (Chile), Schoffit (Alsace), Jean-Luc Colombo (Rhone), Pibarnon (Bandol) and Planeta (Italy). It's a fascinating line up, and I'll definitely be attending.


Decanter will also be hosting three Rising Stars Masterclasses at the event '(German Riesling - unsung stars of the wine world', 'Les Cinq - Star winemaking families of Bordeaux', and 'Rising Stars of the Barossa'). The equivalent events at the Fine Wine Encounter normally sell out pretty fast, so if you want to attend these (tickets are an extra 32 each), you'll need to move sharpish..

Tickets for the main event, which takes place at London's Landmark Hotel on Saturday 19 May 2001, cost 26 per person, double tickets are available at 50, and there is a group discount for 12 people (12 tickets for the price of 10).
