I'm salivating at the number of extremely expensive and rare wines available to taste - at the last event the average price per bottle was around £75. This means that we didn't taste anything under £30 per bottle. This is one of the only wine festivals in London where you will be able to enjoy this high of quality wines. (see their website for a full list)

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.
