BORDEAUX LOGO MASTER2Wine lovers in the Midlands have their very own wine fair to look forward to with the launch of the Love Wine Festival in Birmingham in November. Featuring a mouth-watering mix of wines, assorted drinks, artisan foods and wine-related gifts, the event will take place at its most natural home in the city centre – the Hotel du Vin and is sponsored by Bordeaux Wines.

The emphasis is on fun and helping wine drinkers find the wines they like, with the added bonus of being able to stock up for Christmas and buy a present or two as well. For those who would appreciate a little extra guidance, well-known TV wine pundits Joe Wadsack from BBC 2 Food and Drink and Helen McGinn (aka the Knackered Mother) from The Alan Titchmarsh Show will be hosting wine-walks, and there are also FREE Love-Ins (aka mini masterclasses) presented by professionals.

The organisers are local resident, Laura Clay, and well known Master of Wine (at least to Lidl shoppers), Richard Bampfield, both of BYWine, along with Nicola Everns, an experienced co-ordinator of wine events.  Laura, who is wine contributor for Edge magazine, explains, “At Love Wine, we have a relaxed, informal and fun approach to wine; we know our stuff but are totally unstuffy. Wine passions are fanned, wine snobbishness is definitely banned!”

With over 200 wines from all over the world to taste, this is without doubt something new and exciting for Birmingham wine lovers.

Each ticket holder is given a FREE Riedel tasting glass to use on the day and then take home along with a goody bag to the total value of over £13.

On top of that, Gastro Card holders are offered a discount* of 10% when they enter the code LW10.
