"London's third annual Big Fortified Tasting, was a joy....the event gets better and better."
- Jancis Robinson OBE, MW on the b.f.t. 2012
"Thank you very much for the invitation to the b.f.t. I had a wonderful time and the range of wines at your tasting was stunning. It is truly an amazing tasting: all my congratulations for your superb organisation."
- Gerard Basset OBE, MW, MS on the b.f.t. 2012
"The b.f.t. is impeccably organised, and is the ideal opportunity to show these wines to the right people in the trade. The presence of many of the top producers of fortified wines in the world is testament to the b.f.t.'s importance."
- Jim Reader, Export Consultant, C. da Silva, Porto on the b.f.t. 2012
The Big Fortified Tasting (the b.f.t.) is the single largest wine fair in the world which is solely dedicated to fortified wines. It takes place annually in central London, and registration is open to bona fide members of the wine trade, whether from the UK, or elsewhere.
The first b.f.t. in 2010 was shortlisted for the International Wine Challenge Award: Best Generic Marketing Campaign.
