Various, UK

Enjoy the summer sun and a glass of your fav tipple.

Did you know the UK is home to over 800 vineyards?! We didn’t either, but we do know that you can taste some of the best UK wines at one of the many wine festivals live this summer:

Canterbury Wine Festival

17-18th May

Focused on local vineyards, Canterbury Wine Festival will highlight the top 45 wines from the region's vineyards during this two-day event. Speak to the producers and vineyard staff, taste as many as you like and even join the tasting masterclass to enhance your knowledge. A fine way to kick-off the rosé seasons.

London Wine Fair

20-22nd May

Taking over Olympia with wines from around the world, London Wine Fair is back and bigger than ever. Be greeted by over 10,000 drinks industry professionals and try wines that have never been imported to the UK before. Join a masterclass or tasting session for a guided walk through the world of wine.

Cardiff Wine Festival

28-29th June

Attracting over 50 winemakers from around the world, Cardiff Wine Festival has quickly established itself as the top wine event in Wales. With over 300 wines, spirits, and special food pairings available to try (and all included in the ticket price), this isn’t one to miss!
