Tom Cannavan Festival LondonA well-known figure on the Edinburgh wine scene, Tom Cannavan is an award-winning wine writer and publisher of wine-pages.com and brings you the Edinburgh Festival of Wine, an unmissable day for the capital’s wine lovers. There will be 300 brilliant wines on tasting – all included in your ticket price – some fantastic discounts if you choose to buy, and a superb programme of masterclass tastings with some of the world’s greatest wines. Tom will be there too of course 🙂

Tom and his team have run a major wine festival in Glasgow since 2002, and having founded ‘The Wine Gang’ in 2008, he brought a wine festival to Edinburgh from 2011 to 2016. Flying solo since then, Tom launched his own day-long celebration of wine in Edinburgh in 2017, which sold out completely with rave reviews from the 550 wine lovers who attended. The 2018 Festival will once again be open from noon until 5pm, with re-entry via the Festival wristband.
