Record turnout for supplier

WHOLESALER Matthew Clark claims to have attracted a record number of visitors to a recent tasting event in Edinburgh.

As well as showcasing the company’s wine list the event, at the Balmoral, featured workshops and masterclasses providing guidance on how operators can make the most of wine in their outlets.
Hosted by Matthew Clark representatives as well as wine producers, the sessions covered a range of topics, from menu design and increasing profitability to tutored tastings.
Des Gallagher, regional managing director for Scotland, said: “This has been our most successful event to date, with record numbers.
“We’ve been able to showcase not only the broad spectrum of quality wine we offer, but also our added value services, which enable us to work with our customers to develop their business, which is vital in our [efforts to] continue our support of the Scottish on-trade.”
