Is SITT really just for independents in the trade?

Over the years, SITT was straying from it's roots- a tasting solely for independents. Now in new hands, we are tightening the criteria and making sure exhibitors and visitors have the same motives, to maximise the success of your visit.

This tasting is for independents, no large commercial companies, just small scale, boutique businesses in the wine trade.
