The best tasting of the year (and don’t just take our word for it, see what Jancis Robinson, The Wine Gang and The Buyer said about last year’s event) returns on 25th September 2018.

Taking place at Shoreditch Town Hall in East London, eight of the UK’s most dynamic and exciting wine importers get together for this celebration of the best wines in the UK marketplace.

“We are an eclectic bunch of the UK’s most exciting wine importers, with a simply philosophy: discover wines that taste amazing and are packed with flavour,” says Out The Box founder and The Knotted Vine MD David Knott.

“These are wines made by small producers who understand and care for their environment; each and every one willing to push the boundaries to produce interesting, eye-opening wines.

This year’s tasting will be bigger and more extensive than ever, featuring the following dynamic importers: The Knotted Vine, Red Squirrel, Swig, Basket Press Wines, Modal Wines, Nekter Wines, Maltby & Greek and Uncharted Wines.

“The tasting was created to act as sort of mini portfolio tasting for younger importers who felt that an individual tasting was a little too daunting and too expensive alongside the plethora of bigger company tastings during the autumn ‘tasting season’,” continues Knott.

“The extensive number of wines from each importer, the quantity of new producers and the shared philosophy on minimal intervention winemaking are really the main features of Out The Box.”

This year’s event will include a new speed-pour section featuring a wine list chosen by wine buyers from some of London’s best restaurants and bars.

“We are all super excited about this year – it’s a top venue so getting ready for a big one!”

Out The Box 2018 takes place at Shoreditch Town Hall on Tuesday 25th September from 10am to 7pm.
