Welcome to the Big Fortified Tasting

The Big Fortified Tasting (the b.f.t.) is the single largest wine show in the world which is solely dedicated to fortified wines.

The show takes place annually in central London, and registration is open to bona fide members of the wine and hospitality trades who buy, sell or serve fortified wines and the established print and online press serving those markets, whether from the UK or one of our many visitors from overseas.
