From the good people that bought you the hugely successful London Cocktail Week comes London Wine Week… A unique seven day celebration of the capital’s emerging and passionate wine scene; London Wine Week aims to give wine-curious Londoners the opportunity to taste, learn about, and enjoy premium wines by the glass in some of the capital’s very best bars and restaurants.
We’ve all been there… Always seem to fall back on old favourites? Feel overwhelmed by the vast number of options? The festival will help you discover new grapes, varieties and vintages usually unavailable by the glass. Simply buy a wristband for just £10 to be part of the Wine Tours, and use the specially created pocket-sized guidebook which maps out all the venues taking part.
From dusty wine vaults to classic hotel bars, top-end restaurants to tiny hidden gems – flash your London Wine Week wristband throughout the week to qualify for premium wines by the glass and taster wine flights, each for just £5.
The festival will also be championing the wealth of incredible independent wine merchants who will be throwing open their doors during the week to offer masterclasses, meet the maker sessions and discounts on bottles for wristband wearers.
And as if this wasn’t enough, there will also be a full schedule of ticketed, bespoke events – all a complete departure from the pre-imagined white tablecloth and spittoon tastings, and instead tapping into the pop-up phenomenon and emerging street food movement.
The festival, taking place 02 – 08 June will be set against the backdrop of some of London’s finest bars and restaurants.
Venues already confirmed are Hawksmoor, Bread Street Kitchen, Sager & Wilde, Vinoteca, 28-50, Barbecoa, Fifteen, The Providores, MASH and lots, lots more (see below).
