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 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
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.
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’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.
