London Wine Week: 5 – 11th June, 2017
Update 26.05.17: Free Trade Wristbands
London Wine Week organisers DrinkUp.London have announced free wristbands will be made available to the trade. To claim one, click the link below and send them an email. You’ll need to send this email from a work email account, and provide proof that you work in the bar trade (take a photo of your payslip, for instance).
Your free wristband will entitle you to: £5 wine flights or bespoke Sip & Snack offers in over 125 bars across London, plus access to four international pop-up wine bars with vino from Portugal, Provence, Argentina plus a brand new fizz launch.
Now that London Wine Week (LWW) is just over a month away, organisers DrinkUp.London are able to confirm the first 100 London bars that will be offering either £5 wine flights, or sip-and-snack deals as part of the festival’s wine tour.
Both card-carrying oenophile bartenders and the wine-curious will find LWW an excellent opportunity to broaden their horizons at mate’s rates, and being a Drinkup.London bash, there will be the chance to learn about booze as you drink it.
LWW say of this year’s festival:
“Leave your misconceptions at the door with bag‑in‑box wine at Vinoteca and taste three premium wines from Gascony, Provence and Cataluna. Bounce between Italy’s mineral chardonnay, soft peach rosés and deep purple montepulciano from Abruzzo at Acqua7 and create your own flight using Martello Hall’s largest selection of tap wines in the country.
Experience the joy of fresh fish polpetta paired with chardonnay’s high minerality and long finish at Enoteca Pomaio. Dig into Hawksmoor’s famous old spot belly ribs with a glass of full bodied Henschke semillon to accompany you at Hawksmoor Seven Dials and jump in with devils on horseback paired to a deep pink rosé at Sager + Wilde Paradise Row.”
You can buy a festival pass and see a full list of participating bars on the LWW website.
