Just 10 days to go before our flagship event, Laithwaite’s LIVE London 2015, and we couldn’t be more excited! We hope to see you there: head over to our Twitter or Facebook feeds to enter our ticket giveaway.
Sadly it is the last time we’ll meet under the Arches at Vinopolis. Not the last Laithwaite’s LIVE London, of course (a new venue is already lined up for 2016), but after six fabulous years there we wanted to go out with a bang!
So, we’re celebrating with our biggest and best event yet. Particularly as this is our founder Tony’s 50th year in wine. You’ll meet plenty of winemaking friends – old and new – from far and wide. Over 100 wines from 15 countries and dozens of regions – many you’ll be familiar with, some perhaps less so.
Like Moldova! Because it’s nice to go off the beaten track. And be a little different. That’s why we also picked up the Eastern European Specialist award at International Wine Challenge this year. We strongly recommend getting a seat in The Tasting Theatre where you can hear first hand from our buyer Beth about just how good Moldovan wines are.
Of course Laithwaite’s LIVE is not just about wine – there is excellent beer, olives, cheese (courtesy of the sumptuous Pong) and for the first time delicious chocolate from our good friends at Green & Black’s. And to keep that vibe fizzing, this year we’ve set up a bar dedicated entirely to bubbly. Speaking of which, Barbara Laithwaite and her son Tom will be giving a tell-all Q&A session on England’s sparkling success, as well as unveiling the dazzling 2011 vintage of Wyfold.
Finally (…drum roll please!) on Friday 6th only, cricketing legend David Gower will be gracing us with his presence to discuss his love for wine in an exclusive Q&A session with Tony. Most exciting of all, every Friday ticket holder stands a chance of winning signed Gower memorabilia on the day!
After trying all the fine wines on offer, make the most of the 10% discount and free delivery by placing an order before heading home.
For the full list of sessions and stands make sure you take a look at our brochure.
And if you haven’t snapped up a ticket yet, what are you waiting for? We still have a few left for Friday afternoon so get yours now!
