London Wine Week: 13th – 19th May, 2019. Hub: Flat Iron Square, London Bridge
Now in its sixth year, London Wine Week (LWW) will return this month, and thanks to sister-festival London Cocktail Week celebrating its 10th birthday, passes are free for anyone who downloads the Drinkup.London app.
LWW’s hub is located at Flat Iron Square in London Bridge, and will be open from midday to 11pm from Wednesday to Sunday. At the hub, visitors will find a selection of al-fresco wine bars. Beyond the hub, over 75 venues are offering £6 wine trios and hosting a variety of LWW events, including wine and food pairing options, and self-guided wine tours (isn’t that just drinking?)
Humble Grape’s “Meet Our Hero Producers” will be serving a wine flight featuring a selection of wines from all over the world – Crémant d’Alsace Rosé from France (produced by Nicolas Laugner), a German Riesling produced by Stephan Attmann and a Syrah, Carignan, Grenache blend from South Africa produced by Francois Haasbroek
Salon’s Wine Store in Brixton will be introducing visitors to unfiltered Chenin from South Africa, skin-contact Grecanico from Sicily and a funky Cabernet Franc from Italy with their “Cloudy, Skinny, Funky!” flight, again for only £6.
Percy & Founders have chosen three French wines showcasing female biodynamic wine producers. The women running each of these domains have clear visions of exactly what “natural” means to them and have built themselves a reputation for producing wines that are expressive of their unique terroir.
Parisian-style wine bar Noble Rot in Holborn, will be offering classic Spanish pairing of Jamon Croquettes and Fino Sherry for just £10.
Other wine bars involved include Bedales, all six Hawksmoor sites and the newly-opened Angelina.
