Taking place from 10am-5.30pm at The Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, it will showcase over 250 wines from "a record number of winemakers" including a number of newcomers for 2013.
Among the new producers on show will be Domaine Rewa from Central Otago, New Zealand, producing Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs; and Bodegas Altanza from Rioja.
Other producers attending the tasting include Pierre Moncuit (Champagne); Domaine de l'Hortus (Pic Saint Loup); Bodega Altanza (Rioja, Spain); Elena Walch (Alto Adige, Italy); Marjan Simcic (Slovenia); Ivica Matosevic (Croatia); Cederberg (Cederberg Mountains, South Africa) and The Rolland Collection including the Yacochuya estate in Cafayate, Argentina.
The tasting will also include a chance to taste a wide range of wines from the 2011 vintage in the Rhone Valley and Burgundy to coincide with the release of Bancroft's 2011 en primeur offers.
Several of the region's leading growers will be in attendance including A.F.Gros, Henri Gouges, Guy Amiot and Christophe Cordier from Burgundy, and Domaine de la Mordorée and Pierre Gaillard from the Rhone.
