Discovery Tasting 2022

The Big Reveal

7 July 2022

Change of date – Sud de France 10th edition Top 100 tasting 

Due to likely train+tube strikes, which may be disrupting for many of you,
we will postpone this tasting, involving our producers visiting from France.
(Originally Tuesday 21 June for Trade & Press)

Instead, please join us:

Thursday 7 July 10.30 to 5.00pm

The Top 100 line-up – at One Great George Street, London SW1P 3AA

All 100 winning wines (without producers) will simply be offered for efficient early tasting to buyers and press.

The Languedoc-Roussillon Sud de France/Sud Ouest Top 100 competition has been running for over 10 years and it is aims to help both the wine trade and press to find some of the best wines that this impressive and innovative French wine region has to offer.
The Top 100 Discovery Tasting is the ideal opportunity to discover wines selected carefully by Tim Atkin MW and his panel of experts during a rigorous blind tasting.
Winning wines from the Top 100 are usually a mix of widely distributed wines as well as newcomers to the UK market and this year won’t be an exception.


Tuesday 18 October – 10.30 to 5.00pm

The wine trade is invited to attend the Sud de France Top 100 Discovery tasting –
Part II. This new principal event of our awards year will bring together the new line-up of the 100 winning wines from the landmark 10th edition of the competition as well as additional select wines from 16 of the winning producers. To be hosted on 18 October, this autumnal tasting will take place in a new airy venue, The View in London’s Holborn.
The 16 producers visiting the UK will include independent boutique wineries as well as acclaimed negociants and cooperatives and will showcase 100 extra cuvees covering the whole of the Occitanie Region. Most of these wines are looking for distribution.
