With Sauvignon Blanc Day behind us and Chardonnay Day in the throws of excitement as I type, we’re about to embark on the ultimate excuse to celebrate wine, and this time it’s for a whole week. Those clever people at London Cocktail Week that inspired our capital city to dust off their novelty cocktail shakers and mix, taste and drink their way around London have turned their hands to wine. And not before time, the inaugural London Wine Week is fast approaching and if you ask me it’s exactly what London’s wine scene has been waiting for.
The team have inspired wine retailers, restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs to shout about their wine offering, notably their higher priced wines (above £35) and serve them by the glass at a money-can-buy £5. All you have to do is buy a wristband for £10 to open up your week to a touristic view of the wines at the other end of the wine list!
There’s something for everyone so clear your diary and top up your Oyster card: LondonWine Week is from 2nd – 8th June. For full listings of events and participating venues visit the London Wine Week website and follow me and them on Twitter for all the latest news.
