Get your wine on for London Wine Week – 18th-24th May

ByThe Cocktail Lovers


Okay, confession time: before we went all lovey-dovey over cocktails, like most folk we had a thing for wine. And we’re ashamed to say it wasn’t particularly good stuff either. We didn’t have a clue about wine save for the price we were prepared to pay for it and as the inner sanctum of the wine world seemed so hard to penetrate, it was easier for us to remain blissfully ignorant.

Not any more though. The cork has been eased out of the wine bottle and thankfully, the oenophiles world is starting to lose the stuffiness it had before. Even more now that London Wine Week has come on to the scene.

Just like its boozy siblings London Cocktail Week and London Beer Week which all come under the Drink Up London umbrella, this special week running from 18th to 24th May, is your chance to gen up on everything you ever wanted to know about wine. Whether you’re a newbie or not.

Book up for a packed programme of wine workshops with the experts, follow the WineTubeMap and treat your tastebuds to the finest wines to match your taste preference, try one of daily masterclasses in the Nyetimber hub in Devonshire Square or head off for a day to the English vineyards. You can also stock up on quality wines at a whopping 40% off from esteemed wine merchants Berry Bros & Rudd, learn about wine from the experts at the Wine & Spirits Education Trust, treat yourself to wine and vermouth-matched dinners in top London venues or play it more low-key with informal wine picnics.

Whatever you choose to do – and believe us, there’s plenty to keep you busy, you’ll need to sign up for a wristband first. Not only does said wristband give you access to £5 wine taster flights in select venues it acts as your passport for discounts in more than 100 venues in the capital throughout the week as well.

Wristbands cost £10 and include a London bar guide to help you get the most out of your week. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
