Check here for Blackbook Winery’s upcoming events at our London winery or other locations around the city or beyond.
After the raving success of our Spring Fling release party back in April, we have decided to open our doors once again. This time we embrace the British summer, bringing the seaside to our Battersea archway.
True to our wandsworth roots, we will be serving our neighbours' Mondo Brewery and Doghouse Distillery along side our wines. And to keep the kiddies (and adults) having fun, we have tracked down a superb local facepainter.
The very talented Jackalope's All American food truck will be there to feed our faces with some amazing mac&cheese, burgers, dogs, and more!
Wine will be flowing, music roaring, food cooking, and a fun to be had.
Free to attend!
The youngest members of the Blackbook Family are our 1 year old and 3 year old, so they are delighted to help welcome families to the winery for our event during English Wine Week. Join us on Saturday 1st June to come along to the winery, where we’ll attempt to keep your kids occupied long enough for you to hear about Blackbook, English wine and the urban wine scene here in London. There will be a walk through of the process from our winemaker, Sergio, and the kids will be invited to do arts and crafts. There will be juice and snacks provided for the children.
We are delighted to partner up with the talented Food Stories who is building a gastronomic and wine extravaganza of the finest English food and we are pairing with our wines.
We’re delighted to be bringing English Wine Week to Battersea’s finest bottle shop, Philglas and Swiggot, where Sergio has had close connections to since his arrival in London over 10 years ago. Sergio will be pouring from our range and sharing the Blackbook story. Tickets available first from Philglas and Swiggot
To celebrate English Wine Week, we have arranged a winemaker led exploration through the breadth our industry has to offer today. Join Sergio Verrillo of Blackbook Winery, Adrian Pike of Westwell Wines and Ulrich Hoffmann from Hoffmann & Rathbone as they share their favourite wines from their current releases with a guided tasting, and their thoughts on the English wine industry today.
We’re heading north to host a special portfolio tasting at one of our favourite Edinburgh haunts. The beautiful Smith & Gertrude in Stockbridge boasts an impressive selection of English wine and we’re proud to be joining the ranks and doing so with a kick off event on the 23rd of May. Tickets available from the Smith & Gertrude site, book early to avoid disappointment.
Where to better to have a party than in a winery! Join us to celebrate our Spring release where we will be pouring the first of our 2018 wines to be released, including a very special London release.
Bring your kids, bring your mate, bring your dog, all are welcome!
There will be great music, food trucks and of course, lots of wine! Swing by and check out South London’s independent urban winery.
An invitation only event to introduce our three new releases to the wine trade.
We want to welcome the London trade down to our Battersea site to see first hand where we produce our English wine. We will also be sharing our three new releases for Spring 2019:
2018 rosé “I’d rather be a rebel”
2018 single vineyard ortega & bacchus blend “The Mix-Up”
2018 single vineyard bacchus “Tamesis”
Open doors at the winery to trade during the afternoon as well, 1-5pm.
We're very excited to be part of Open House London 2018. The winery will be open to the general public over the weekend to come and visit, and meet Sergio, our winemaker, to learn about how wine is made and see the equipment we use.
You can try a flight of our three still wines for £10 and our cellar door is open.
10am-5pm Saturday 22nd
1pm-5pm Sunday 23rd
In honour of English Wine Week, we are hijacking one of our favourite local wine bars, Cellar SW4, just off Clapham High Street. Join us for the evening where we'll be exclusively pouring our newly released 2017 Rosé, as well as 2 other beautiful wines that our winemaker, Sergio Verrillo, made as part of the harvest teams: Ata Rangi's 2016 Crimson and Mulderbosch's 2015 Block A.
