"This is an exciting year for Chalié Richards and it is our biggest presence yet at the trade fair," says Chalié's marketing manager, Lise Ewins.

Edward Cavendish & Sons is using the wine fair as a point of celebration for its 30th birthday and it plans to uncork a specially bottled 30-year-old 'surprise' at the event to mark the occasion.
