Hallgarten Wines Launches Weekly Virtual Tasting Series

Specialist wine importer, Hallgarten & Novum Wines, has this week launched the first of a 12 part series of weekly virtual wine tastings. Featuring a different producer each week from its award-winning portfolio, Hallgarten Wines is working with its customers in the hospitality and retail sectors to bring the world of wine into their customers’ homes.


Kicking off with Puglia’s San Marzano on 11th June, winemaker Caterina Bellanova presented a selection of her award-winning wines taken from the Hallgarten portfolio and available to viewers to taste during her presentation. Each week, winemakers from producers across the world will guide consumers through a range of three wines in their portfolio, as well as fielding questions on their winemaking styles and regions. In a special focus on Hallgarten’s strength in the Eastern Mediterranean, Head of Buying, Steve Daniel, will be hosting a tasting focused on the wines from Greece in August.


Hosted on interactive video platform Zoom, the tastings are open to Hallgarten’s partners in the on- and off-trade, and customers of their businesses across the UK to help individuals experience wines directly with winemakers and producers.

Hallgarten & Novum Wines Portfolio Director, Jim Wilson, commented: “As the Coronavirus has started to reshape the wine industry, we have had to look at ways we can replicate various forms of wine tasting. Now that individuals are currently unable to congregate and taste wine with our producers under one roof, we felt it necessary to bring the wines, and winemakers, to them online. We have received some fantastic initial feedback from our partners in the hospitality and retail sectors
