English Wine Week 2017 will take place Saturday 27th May - Sunday 4th June 2017
English Wine Week is a national campaign, designed to raise awareness of English wine across the country. There are a wide range of activities which take place across the country to celebrate English Wine Week, involving both retail and leisure outlets, and at the vineyards themselves.
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 listings details of forthcoming events and news about the events will be posted on our newspages. Don't forget to follow #EnglishWineWeek on twitter @englishwine and @englishwineweek!
