How to spend the last 3 days of London Wine Week

Drink, Food & Drink

There are plenty of ways to show your appreciation of wine. Sip on Merlot during a massage at London’s first wine spa. Take part in a Bacchanalian race in the countryside. Enjoy a crushed Cabernet scrub at a Vinothérapy spa in Bordeaux, or sink into a candle-lit alcove at your local with a full bodied Malbec.

It also happens to be London Wine Week.

A seven day summer festival taking place across the City (14-20 May), with delicious events happening each day of the week – from pop-up wine bars to al fresco parties, decadent dinners and tutored tastings, and over 125 of the very best wine bars creating bespoke tasting flights of wine and tasty ‘sip & snack’ food pairings for festival pass holders.

Here’s everything you need to know…
