London Wine Week 23-29 May 2016

Now in its third year, London Wine Week was created as a chance to open the doors to some of London’s best wine bars, showcasing the fantastic Sommeliers and diverse wine offerings to an increasingly large number of eager young consumers.

More than 125 of the city’s most celebrated bars and restaurants will be part of the 2016 festival, all offering £5 wine flights to those wearing a LWW festival wristband (which cost £10).

Alongside this, there will be a full schedule of wine events and offers, including pop-­‐ups, parties, pairing dinners and special menus. The festival comes from the same team behind London Cocktail Week, now in its 7th year.

NEW for 2016: The London Wine Week Banquets -­ a series of wine tasting dinners in partnership with Disappearing Dining Club. Hosted in the Devonshire Square suite for 50 guests per sitting. Each day will showcase a different style of wine with menus created to compliment these by the DDC chefs.

LWW x Disappearing Dining Club: Sparkling Twilight Banquet

Fri 27 May, 7.30pm. Devonshire Square, EC2M 4AE. £60.

A sparkling Italian evening with Ferrari. Guillo Ferrari’s wines are inspired by Champagne, but with Italian panache and so this menu takes a decadent twist, whilst still being light and moreish, ideal for Friday night feasting.
