Decanter Fine Wine Encounter. Need I say more? Europe's best wines, served in London's most prestigious hotel, The Landmark.

WHAT STYLE OF EVENT IS IT:
If you've never been to a wine festival, there will be lots of tables, each with around different 10 wines to try. In total probably around 600 wines. You walk around, sampling the different wines and talking to the producers. It's very informal and not snobby at all - it's amazing! I try to focus on one grape at a time, meaning that I will try a Sauvingon Blanc from each table. Or I try all the whites first, then come back and try the reds.
Venue: The Landmark Hotel: 222 Marylebone Road NW1 6JQ London United Kingdom
