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
