Edinburgh Programme (2019) | List of Exhibitors (2019)
Edinburgh Festival of Wine from Tom CannavanHaving sadly had to postpone the Edinburgh Festival 2020 due to the Covid-19 restrictions, Tom Cannavan, award-winning wine writer and publisher of wine-pages.com, will once again bring you the Edinburgh Festival of Wine in 2021. It’s an unmissable day for the capital’s wine lovers with over 300 brilliant wines on tasting – included in your ticket price – 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 since 2017 he has brought his Festival of Wine to Edinburgh too. 2019’s event sold out completely with rave reviews from the wine lovers who attended. The 2021 Festival will be open from 12:30pm until 5pm, with re-entry via the Festival wristband.

We’ll be announcing 2021’s line-up of exhibitors in due course, with plenty of new names and new wines, but in the meantime our List of Exhibtors from 2019 will give you a flavour of what you can expect. We’ll also be announcing our masterclasses line up as soon as we can, but once again the 2019 Edinburgh Programme will give you some idea of what we offer.
