Decanter Magazine Fine Wine Encounter

The Decanter Fine Wine Encounter is THE consumer tasting of the year. Around 100 premium wineries from all over the world will be exhibiting their wines and the standard of wines on tasting is always very high. This event has been held in the elegant surroundings of the Landmark Hotel every year for the last 15 years and it's always the vinous highlight of the year! For more information on the wineries attending see:

The tasting lasts from 11 to 5 and you can get there at any time. I will be doing 2 guided wine walks so that you can meet other members of the group - at 1pm and 3pm. 

The normal ticket price is £55 but for Sunday 17th only I have negotiated a special 25% discount with the organisers which brings the price down to £41.25.

If you would like to attend RSVP, but then you must buy your own ticket. Go to:

Select the number of tickets you require then at the bottom of the page Click on 'click here to enter a promotional code', enter the code 'Sundaymeetup' and then 'Next step' and then proceed to pay.

There are also 3 different Masterclasses scheduled during the day but these cost £95 each and no discount has been offered. If you would like to attend one of the Masterclasses you will need to book your ticket when you book the for the Fine Wine Encounter.

Please note that I have set a limit of 30 places for the Meetup group but I have not reserved places with Decanter - in other words tickets are subject to availability, so if you RSVP 'Yes' you will need to buy your ticket straight away to be sure of a place.

    Lovely way to spend a Sunday, thank you Christos but yes maybe just too many wines to taste.
    Are you going to the one in Feb.?- Spanish and Portuguese wines I tjink.

    Yes, I rated Mr and Mrs Burge too! Also liked the Spanish Bio-dynamic Cava. As they said it's a shame its called cava as it does not do it justice.

    Good event but felt overwhelmed by numbers of people and amount of wines -and so hard not to get drunk! (failed miserably). Caught up with the walk-about for a few moments and then got lost in the crowd. Sorry not to see you all properly.

    Too many wines in too short a time (or was that just tolerance - sensible limits?).
    Sorry I missed bumping into some of the regulars.
    Next time?
