Earlier this year three of Fells’ key wine producers were delighted to welcome some of the UK’s top independent wine merchants and sommeliers to their regions. 

Here the guests had the opportunity to experience the history, culture and wine making techniques of each region first-hand, thus enabling them to develop a better understanding of the wines and what makes them so special.

Symington Family Estates hosted 2 trips to the region, touring the Graham’s 1890 lodge in Vila Nova di Gaia and their Qunita’s in the Douro Valley - including the newly completed Quinta do Bomfim visitor Centre. Blandy’s hosted a spring tip out to the incredible island of Madeira, touring the old lodge in Funchal and the family vineyards. Torres also hosted a spring trip to Catalunya, visiting the family’s numerous wineries and vineyards, including the impressive terraces of Priorat and the old vines at the Jean Leon estate.
