One of London’s most versatile conference and event venues, Church House Conference Centre in the heart of Westminster welcomed a large number of wine connoisseurs for the Big Fortified Tasting which also attracted 50 of the most renowned producers.

Open to bona fide members of the wine trade, the event is attracted visitors from the UK and overseas. It is the 2nd consecutive year that the event has been staged at Church House Conference Centre and featured a range of master classes tutored by industry specialists including the President of the Sherry Institute and President of the Port Wine Institute, as well as renowned winemakers. Guests were also able to discover rare Madeiras, and fortified wine vintages dating back to the early part of the 20th century.

Church House Conference Centre General Manager Robin Parker comments: “Fortified wines are very often given cursory attention in traditional tastings. The Big Fortified Tasting provides an amazing opportunity to put some of the great classics in the spotlight. We were delighted to welcome back an event which is clearly becoming a must-attend in the wine calendar.”
