It’s the best wine show in London. It’s the best in the U.K. According to many of the wine producers who come back year after year, it’s actually the best wine show in the world.
Mostly down to you, they say, the customers who show up. You are apparently easily the most enthusiastic people they meet anywhere. And they love that. You’re also the most pleasant and … I never understand this … the best behaved!
I should add that no one, absolutely no one should feel they don’t know enough about wine in order to come. Have no fear. This is a show I dreamt up forty years ago precisely for you … our members and customers who said they knew nothing about wine but knew what they liked.
A few hours with the growers and their delicious wines and you’ll know more than all your friends. Take the boat to The Tower or the Tube to The Bank … maybe book into the Premier Inn next door like us. It’s a great party. Well behaved party! I’ve never missed a single one. Never will.
