Winchester Wine Festival
On 23rd and 24th November, we arrived in Hampshire for the third annual Winchester Wine Festival.
Susie Barrie and Peter Richards – two of the world’s 350 Masters of Wine – founded the event, held in the stunning neo-Gothic Winchester Guildhall. Known for their frequent appearances on BBC1 and BBC Radio 4, Susie and Peter mingled with guests, sharing their knowledge and passion for discovering the finest wines.
Tastings took place throughout the festival, offering ticket holders a chance to sample over 300 wines from around the world. Masterclasses, live music, delicious food and a prize draw were among the highlights of the weekend, as well as the innovative Follow Your Taste scheme, which helped guide wine-lovers through the huge range of wines available.
Nyetimber Brand Ambassador Steffan Griffiths was on hand to talk through the nuances of our Nyetimber Classic Cuvee, Blanc de Blancs 2010, Rosé and Demi-Sec wines, as well as providing a unique insight into the history of Nyetimber.
