But why Latitude20?
Latitude conjures up voyage and discovery. And you guessed it – 20 is a reference to wine.
Did you know that the majority of vineyards across the world can be found above the 20th parallel of each hemisphere? Nevertheless, some wines (considered to be from ‘extreme vineyards’) are produced below this latitude. Across a variety of spaces, Latitude20 will highlight some of these extreme wines and invite you on a journey to more than 70 producing countries!
Access to the Latitude20 wine bar, snack bar and wine cellar is free of charge and open to all.
Latitude20 is operated by the Arom Group (run by Didier Oudin), together with Régis Deltil (Passion Vins) and Christian Messaris (Imogest).
