Santa Margherita Gruppo Vinicolo

“Of Men, Lands and Wines” is how Santa Margherita sums up its Italian character and family and community-based philosophy in words, images and video. Its featured lines include the Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore Brut and Sparkling Rosé Brut, and the best-selling Pinot Grigio Valdadige.

The latest offering, Merlot Veneto – in brilliantly innovative packaging made from 100% recycled paper – “brings a whole new dimension” to its travel retail range, adds the company.

Austrian wines & spirits specialist Schlumberger put its sparkling wines and stand-out Mozart chocolate liqueurs in the spotlight, but there is much more to its offer too. Japanese spirits, including Hatozaki whisky, and Mamont Siberian vodka, plus its recently-launched Mamont Blood, are also featured.

In a wonderfully engaging Engagement Lounge session, Schlumberger took visitors on a journey across wild Siberia.
