Four days in February, four great cities…

Four days in February, four great cities…

Four days in February, four great cities…

Last week saw the Liberty Wines team take on four cities in four days as we hosted Portfolio Tastings in Bristol, Edinburgh, Dublin and Manchester. Over 600 customers and press enjoyed more than 3,000 bottles poured by over 30 representatives from wineries across the globe, including Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Austria, England, Armenia, Chile, Argentina, Canada, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

Record attendance at all four events was a fantastic achievement, particularly as this is only the second year Bristol and Manchester have been included in the tasting calendar. Feedback from customers has been overwhelmingly positive, with the only complaint being not enough time to get around all the great wines on show! Twitter was especially abuzz with new favourite wines and plans for future listings:

fabulous tasting today - thanks @liberty_wines - some real gems

With many customers feeling positive about the year ahead, we were delighted to be able to offer those outside London the opportunity to meet the producers and taste over 250 wines from across our portfolio, at a more convenient location. We would like to thank all those that joined us over the four days - customers, press and producers – we couldn’t do it without you!
