They will be showing new wines that have never graced these shores before including one of the top wines of the region, Kopar, and a wine from a variety called Portugieser sometimes also known as Oporto which has absolutely nothing to do with Portugal what-so-ever!! 

St Andrea  Hungary’s wine icon and wine-maker of the year in 2009, Dr György Lőrincz, is amongst those rejuvenating the country’s winemaking. His St Andrea winery is amongst the leaders in re-establishing important Hungarian varietals such as the white Furmint and Hárslevelü and the peppery, red Kadarka.

Brazilian Wines in a Nutshell (and who imports them!)

Posted on July 27, 2016 by | No comments yet

Seven facts about Brazilian Wines

  • The wines are more European in style than their South American counterparts. So ditch the comparison with Argentina and Chile and think more about European light, fresh, food friendly styles.
  • 40% of all wine made in Brazil is sparkling. This is their real point of difference. They make sparkling wines as they do in Champagne from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir using traditional method. They also make a wide variety of sparklings using the Charmat method (as in Prosecco) but it’s their fruity sparkling lower alcohol Moscatos that are especially enjoyed the world over.
  • In general, the abv (alcohol content) of the wines is relatively low, making them especially food friendly.
  • The majority of grapes are grown in the deep south of the country – so forget your image of rainforests and tropical climate; 
down here the temperature is moderate
  • There is one area of grape growing just 8 degrees from the equator in the North of Brazil where two harvests a year are possible. Grapes grow here thanks to the vast Sao Francisco river whose waters are used to irrigate the vineyards. Only 2% of Brazil’s wine comes from here.
  • Many vineyards are located at altitude (600-800 metres above sea level) and they are situated relatively close to the 
Atlantic Ocean. The cooling breezes from the sea and the cooler temperatures (especially at night) 
create an altogether cooler climate; perfect for growing grapes of quality
  • The majority of the winemakers have Italian heritage. Their ancestors started coming over to Brazil (principally 
from the Veneto) in the 1870’s. They still mainly eat Italian food.

Presentation of the region and the wines by Charles Metcalfe and Diogo Campilho:

Charles MetcalfeCharles Metcalfe
Charles Metcalfe one of Britain’s best-known wine critics, renowned for speaking as well as writing about wine. He is a well-known face on UK television, having spent 12 years as drinks presenter on ‘This Morning’ with Richard and Judy. He has also presented food and drink programmes. ‘The Wine and Food Lover’s Guide to Portugal’, co-written with his wife, Kathryn McWhirter, won the 2008 Louis Roederer International Wine Book of the Year Award.

Diogo CampilhoDiogo Campilho
He was born in Lisbon, but grew up on Quinta da Lagoalva in the Tejo, which was owned by his grandmother. There he enjoyed watching the vines grow and the grapes being turned into wine. In 2002 he graduated as a winemaker from the University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro. In 2003 he returned to Quinta da Lagoalva, as assistant winemaker to Rui Reguinga. From 2003 and 2005 Diogo worked at Oakvale winery in the Hunter Valley, as assistant winemaker. He spent three years in Australia and New Zealand, soaking up all the secrets of Antipodean winemaking, before coming back to Portugal to take over the reins of the family business.

Producers present at the Tejo Corner – Tables 86 to 88

Adega do CartaxoAdega do Cartaxo
We are a cooperative with land extending to 1,000 ha. Our production is around 7 million litres of which, within our diverse range, 70% is red. We believe in our people, investing in them and in the technology we need to create the best wines possible. Genuine and authentic: This describes the wines of the Adega Cooperativa do Cataxo. A high degree of quality which is recognised by wine lovers all over the world.

New wine to discover: Plexus.

Fiuza & BrightFiuza & Bright

New vintages to taste: Fiuza Tinta Miúda 2015, Fiuza Alicante Bouschet /Touriga Nacional 2015, Fiuza Alvarinho 2015, Fiuza Touriga Nacional/Merlot.

Quinta da AlornaQuinta da Alorna
Quinta da Alorna combines a long tradition of wine growing and modern winemaking techniques. The estate was established in 1723 by D. Pedro de Almeida, viceroy of India and the 1st Marquis of Alorna. It is now the largest vineyard in the Tejo region (220 ha), growing a wide variety of grapes and producing several nationally and internationally recognised wines. Quinta da Alorna exports around 50% of its production to 28 markets including the US, Sweden, Netherlands, China and Brazil.

Two new wines to discover: Sauvignon Blanc and Alvarinho

Quinta da RibeirinhaQuinta da Ribeirinha
Quinta da Ribeirinha is a family based company. Our vineyards are planted on clay-limestone soil, and we have a dry Mediterranean climate. We combine innovation and technology with the experience and knowledge learned over generations. The vines grow on an integrated production system in which the use of chemicals is minimal, saving the environment and looking after human health.

Quinta do Casal MonteiroQuinta do Casal Monteiro
Established in 1979, Quinta do Casal Monteiro bottles limited production vintages exclusively from its 80 ha property. With an average age of 35 years, the vineyards are located in fertile alluvial sandy clay soil, rooting in an unusual combination and resulting in a low yield production of high quality wine. Moreover, the characteristic of the sub-Mediterranean temperate climate and its proximity to the river Tagus provides the wines with their own singular identity, revealed in both the lush aromas and the complex palate layered by a superb acidity – They are excellent food companions.

Posted on October 15, 2015 by | No comments yet

The JK Marketing team won the International Wine Challenge’s ‘Generic Campaign of the Year’ award at the 2015 IWC award ceremony in London for their Wines of Brasil campaign.

Thanks to the Wines of Brasil campaign there has been a very impressive increase in visibility for Brazilian wines.

JK Marketing is The Drinks Business PR Company of the Year 2015!

Posted on May 22, 2015 by | No comments yet

SPARKLING SUCCESS!

JK MARKETING WINS THE DRINKS BUSINESS AWARD

FOR PR COMPANY OF THE YEAR 2015

 JK Marketing celebrates Drinks Business Award 2015 (small)

We are thrilled to announce that JK Marketing took on the big boys of the wine marketing/PR sector to win the highly prestigious Drinks Business PR Company of the year 2015. From a short-list of three of the UK’s leading PR/marketing companies, the announcement was made at an awards ceremony during the London Wine Trade Fair at Olympia.

 

The editor of the Drinks Business, Patrick Schmidt, said:

 

“Even with a large team the results demonstrated by this company would have been praise-worthy, but for just two people to have achieved such an impact is deeply impressive. Between them, Judy Kendrick and Ana Sofia de Oliveira proactively devised a series of creative, highly strategic campaigns that over-delivered on a tight budget. Thanks largely to their efforts the UK is now the number one export market for Brazilian wine, after JK Marketing helped spark a volume shipment increase of almost 500% over a single year. Then there’s the success of two initiatives that symbolise the rejuvenation of London Wine Fair: Esoterica, a zone for independent merchants, and new for 2015 Wine Unearthed, which matches would-be exporters to the right UK buyers. In short, this is a PR team that really understands the wine trade and what makes it tick.”

 

As we went up for our award, the organisers played Stereo MC’s ‘connected’ – click here to listen – very apt!

 

It’s a great thrill to have been given this award. We are a very small team, but we pride ourselves on always going the extra mile. Business matching is key to every project we create, and this is why we are able to achieve such good results. We also have to thank Tom Dent of Double D Creative in Lymm who supports the creative elements of our business and is an invaluable member of the team. Find him at www.doubledcreative.com.

 

These awards are the only drinks trade awards that recognise the business sectors of its markets, so this really is the award to win in this industry.

 

About The Drinks Business: AS EUROPE’S leading drinks trade publication, the drinks business is at the forefront of what is happening in the drinks industry. We are determined to maintain our reputation by reacting to the latest developments and trends, as well as making a contribution to the trade with analysis, debate and opinion. www.thedrinksbusiness.com
