Saturday 28th May - Sunday 5th June 2016
English Wine Week is a national campaign, designed to raise awareness of English wine across the country through retail outlets – from supermarkets to independent wine merchants, delicatessens to hotels, pubs, bars and restaurants. Vineyards across the country will also be opening their doors to welcome visitors, offering tours, tastings and special offers. There are a wide range of activities which take place across the country to celebrate English Wine Week.
English Wine Week starts over Spring Bank Holiday which is also half term holiday for most schools. It marks the start of the tourist season, and the vineyards themselves are waking up to the new growing season – there is plenty to see and enjoy.
Please see below the listing details of forthcoming events and news about the events will be posted on our news pages. Don't forget to follow #EnglishWineWeek on twitter @englishwine and @englishwineweek!
