Possible implications – and opportunities – for post-Brexit Fine Wine Merchants


The Fine Wine market is a global one and it relies heavily on importing and exporting high value goods and advising consumers worldwide.

In this briefing session, we will discuss the implications of Brexit for the Fine Wine Merchants as well as the opportunities it might present in a trade negotiation scenario:

  • Post-Brexit trading for the fine wine market
  • The possibilities of opening up global trade further
  • Your asks of the WSTA for lobbying on your behalf

The briefing will be followed by an open Q+A session, and will finish with networking drinks.
