The LIWF opens its doors to the wine trade between the 20th and 22nd May at the curiously named EXCEL in Woolwich in the east of London, near the Royal Victoria Dock. Prime Iain Sinclair territory. But anyway.
Dear suppliers and wine buddies, despite anything I may have suggested to the contrary, I regret that I shall not after all be making the trip to London this year. It's a pity, but there it is.
However, a representative of Bubble Brothers will be in attendance: Valérie, our on-placement assistant from Reims in Champagne, will be making the trip to have a good look around on our behalf and, where possible, say hello to our existing contacts. If you were hoping to meet me but would like to have a chat with our Val instead, please drop me a line and we'll see what can be arranged.
