The range of wines will emphasise quality and diversity. Many exhibitors will be offering exclusive discounts on the day, and remember – your Festival admission ticket includes all tasting samples. Optional Masterclass tickets sold separately.

The 2020 Masterclasses will be announced, but meanwhile here’s a flavour of what we enjoyed in 2019

12:45pm, 2:15pm and 3:45pm – TUTORED MASTERCLASSES.
Nyetimber masterclass12:45pm to 1:30pm – A decade on at Nyetimber. Tickets £20
Join this terrific masterclass for a detailed look at the last 10 years at pioneering English Sparkling Wine producer, Nyetimber. Taste the House’s current releases alongside older bottles from the prodigious 2009 vintage and discover just how complex and age-worthy these fine wines can be.
Douro Valley masterclass2:15pm to 3:00pm – Uncovering the Douro Valley’s Diversity. Tickets £15
A tour of the Douro Valley, one of the most challenging terroirs on earth. A deep valley carved into slate soils, its vineyards are perched on slopes of its various twists and turns giving hugely varied altitudes and exposures. Owner of Adega Artesanal, Hugo Oliveira e Silva, will explore these differences at the Edinburgh Festival.
Suduiraut masterclass3:45pm to 4:30pm – The World of Château Suduiraut, Sauternes Star. Tickets £20
Just in time for Christmas, a special tasting of Château Suduiraut Sauternes wines – including vertical vintages of this classic 1e Cru over the last ten years, presented by Ana Carvalho, Global Brand Ambassador for owners AXA Millesimes.
