Blog: Lucy BritnerAre you going to London Wine Week?

Lucy Britner | 20 May 2015

The second annual London Wine Week is in full flow, coinciding with UK wine trade event London Wine Fair. The week of events and offers involves loads of on- and off-trade outlets around London.

Joined up thinking, really. 

Last year, more than 7,000 Londoners took part, and it is the brainchild of the team behind London Cocktail Week/London Beer Week. Events include winemaker dinners, quizzes and masterclasses. Wristbands for special offers and events are GBP10 but trade members go free if you’re registered. Franciacorta, Rothschild, Nyetimber and Berry Bros & Rudd are among the names on the bill and, if it’s anything like London Cocktail Week, you’re in for a treat. 

Cocktail Week is now in its sixth year and 2014 saw participation from 250 bars across the capital.

The idea of Wine Week is so refreshingly simple that you wonder why no one has done it before.
