Eight retailers join trip to California

09 April, 2014

Eight retailers have been chosen to visit the Golden State on a wine buying trip in a promotion run by OLN and the Wine Institute of California.

The retailers will go on a week-long, all-expenses paid trip from June 22-29 and meet the producers behind iconic brands and lesser-known gems.

They will then run an in-store promotion on Californian wines in September and the best one will win a 3 Modular sampling system from Wine By The Glass for their outlet, plus glassware from Riedel.

The list of retailers going on the trip is as follows:

  • Dafydd Morris, Cheers Wine Merchants
  • Samantha Jackson, Chester Beer & Wine
  • Jon Campbell, Define Food and Wine
  • Ben Watkins, The Guildford Wine Company
  • Ben Stephenson, Hanging Ditch
  • Ed Wells, Harper Wells
  • Andrew Lundy, Vino
  • Kelli Coxhead, The Wine Tasting Shop

Wine is a liquid time capsule. Drinking older vintages not only recalls the weather conditions and winemaking styles of the past, it encourages us to reflect upon our own histories. Such reminiscence often inclines towards romanticised nostalgia. Especially after the second bottle. But looking back is a great way of learning about the future.
