Wine Festival Line-Up
"Many of the wines we have on show are from small, boutique producers, and are a little bit different from what you might find on the High Street”
Over 35 exhibitors have confirmed their attendance at the festival, representing over 50 different wine producing regions around the world. These include the UK’s oldest wine merchant, Berry Brothers & Rudd, award-winning Burgundy specialists Flint Wines and a wide range of more unusual and boutique exhibitors such as The Georgian Wine Society and Red Squirrel Wines.
“We’re delighted with the line-up,” says Chris Bowling, one of the organizers of the event.
“We wanted to put together an ambitious program, and we think our exhibitors give a really good overview of all the regions that are producing exciting wines at the moment.
"We’re also pleased that many of the wines we have on show are from small, boutique producers, and are a little bit different from what you might find on the High Street.”
The festival will take place at the world-famous Oxford Union buildings on the August Bank Holiday weekend (23rd and 24th August), and is divided into different zones, including Old World, New World, Emerging Regions, and an English wine section presenting a number of award-winning English vineyards.
The festival organizers have also announced their tutored tasting program, which consists of a wide range of tastings for all abilities, from an Introduction to Blind Tasting and Grand Cru champagnes up to Italian and Australian Masterclasses led by Masters of Wine Michael Palij and Justin Knock.
“We wanted to put together an event that would teach everyone something new about the world of wine,” says Chris. “Couple that with live music and a unique historical venue and it should be a great weekend in the UK’s social calendar. We’re really excited.”
