We are thrilled to be able to publish our line-up of exhibitors confirmed at the three festivals so far:
As you will see we have a phenomenal line-up again this year spanning high street favourite retailers, the best regional and online merchants, some of the UK’s most quality conscious wine importers and, of course, wine estates and winemakers. And we still have a few more exhibitors just waiting to be confirmed.
If that’s not enough good news, our programme of masterclasses for 2018 really is exceptional, with some of the world’s greatest, most iconic, and most expensive wines being poured in these seated, tutored sessions, but with ticket prices that are simply unbeatable – other wine events would charge three or four times as much.
Tickets for Glasgow’s masterclasses went on sale last week and already two sessions, with Champagne Deutz and with Provic Winery of Croatia, are sold out. At time of writing there are literally handful of tickets remaining for the masterclass with Howard Park Wines of Western Australia. See the Glasgow masterclasses for details but obviously you will have to get your skates on for this event in June – main festival tickets are down to the last few too.
Our Edinburgh masterclass programme has just gone on sale too, with three brilliant sessions: Champagne PIPER-HEIDSIECK (including the iconic ‘Rare’ deluxe cuvée), the Ports of Quinta do Noval (which will include the world’s most expensive Port, ‘Naçional’) and a Chianti vs super-Tuscan showdown with Alessandro Gallo, Chief Wine Maker of Castello d’Albola in Chianti, and sister winery, Rocca di Montemassi in the Maremma. Full details in the Edinburgh programme, but tickets are selling fast so please don’t delay.
Finally, in London we have just confirmed our line-up which is pretty special too: the wines of Champagne Deutz, a vertical tasting of the fabulous Roda I from Bodegas Roda in Rioja, and Tom Cannavan is repeating his sell-out session from Edinburgh last year on the Dos, Donts and Maybes of cheese and wine matching. Details are here and tickets will be going on sale week beginning February 26th. Put a note in your diary, or better still, buy your main festival tickets now or join our mailing list – both groups will receive advanced notice when tickets are released.
With some amazing masterclasses in all cities, there’s a feast of wines awaiting.
