2018 saw 50 producers showing a total of 290 wines covering a large range of fortified styles including Port, Madeira, Sherry, Alentejo, Banyuls, Moscatel de Setúbal and fortified wines from Australia.  A number of Port producers including Sandeman and Quevedo presented their 2016 vintage Ports giving visitors an early opportunity to taste the new vintage being released later in the year.
