Vineyard varieties: The English Wine & Food Festival in Wallingford will showcase wines from 11 local vineyards
Raise a glass to all the great wine being produced on your doorstep at the English Wine & Food Festival.
If you didn’t even know there were vineyards in the Thames and Chiltern region then this is a great opportunity to discover and taste it for yourself.
There are 11 local vineyards taking part in the event which will offer members of the public the opportunity to taste, compare and buy award-winning wines all in one location – Brightwell Vineyard in Wallingford.
You’ll get to meet winemakers, growers and a Master of Wine specialising in English wine as well as learning more about the grape varieties that do well in our unpredictable climate.
You may know classic grape varieties such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay but do you know your Bacchus from your Ortega?
The festival is a must for foodies as well as wine lovers with the chance to pair the wide range of crisp, fruity wines with the freshly made local dishes on offer.
The festival on Saturday, 8th June will include vineyard walks, wine sales and tastings, local vineyard information, artisan hot and cold food, local crafts and a pay bar.
