Wine fair offers first chance to sample Vin de France line-up

Visitors to the London International Wine Fair will have the first opportunity to taste wines from the new Vins de France category.

The Association Nationale Interprofess­ionnelle des Vins de France will also seek the opinion of a panel of qualified tasters.

Sopexa account manager Sabine Cleizergues said: “?The panel, which is being chaired by Anthony Rose, will then pick their favourite wines.” Importers and retailers from the UK will have a chance to enter a competition to name the association’s best value wines – all of which will be available to the UK market.

They can register for the Best Value Vin de France 2010 competition by emailing sabine.cleizergues@sopexa.com.

Registration is free and open until February 26.
