It’s a celebration of fine English Wine at Canopy Market
Set for the long August Bank Holiday, Wine Pantry is collaborating with Canopy Market to stage London’s largest English wine event.
Wine Pantry – London’s multi-award-winning, exclusively English wine merchant – is bringing you 10 English wine-makers, an English wine bar, tutored wine tastings, a live vineyard plant installation, as well as the opportunity to be whisked into the countryside for exclusive vineyard tours.
With over 500 vineyards and competition-winning sparkling wines to rival Champagne, English wine has matured into much more than a novelty. Kent and Wales share a similar chalky soil to the Champagne region and our temperate climate means grapes mature more slowly and produce smaller yields, which help give greater depth of flavour. The result is fantastic wines with their own unique character.
Working alongside Wines of Great Britain, Wine Pantry will also be holding English wine masterclasses throughout the day. At the wine bar, you can try rare English wines as well as stroll through a live vineyard installation and be transported to the wine groves.
For those who wish to literally be transported, scheduled tours will be leaving from Canopy Market for an introduction to the wines of England with visits to two very different vineyards in Surrey, Kent or Essex.
Canopy Market’s regular artisan produce and designer-makers will also be there. And with music, drinks and food stalls, there’s plenty to enjoy over the long weekend.
The wine bar, tasting and vineyard installation will be held across the full bank holiday, Friday – Monday, with wine producers attending Saturday and Sunday only.
The event is FREE to attend, though tastings, masterclasses and vineyard tours are ticketed. Book here.
Ticket Prices :
Saturday or Sunday Tickets: £20 for a glass of sparkling wine on arrival and 5 wine samples.
£15 early-bird tickets available until 24 July.
