Following a hugely successful London Beer Week which saw 10,000 beer drinkers descend on The Old Truman Brewery in February, DrinkUp.London has announced plans for their next festival – London Wine Week – which is taking place 23-29 May 2016.
The festival will return to Devonshire Square for a second year. For LWW wristband wearers, more than 125 venues across the capital will join in the festivities with wine flights, perfectly paired menus, special deals on corkage and a variety of events. A highlight of the week promises to be London’s biggest self-guided wine tasting – the Wine Tours – helping you discover new grapes, varieties and vintages from the comfort of London’s best bars and restaurants. Sommeliers will each create bespoke £5 tasting flights designed to compare a grape variety or region or simply showcase the diversity of wine.
