From the people that brought you Birmingham Cocktail Weekend, a brand new wine festival has been announced for next spring. Taking place from 23rd – 25th March 2018, Birmingham Wine Weekend will give oenophiles the chance to explore new wines for just £4 a glass, as well as attend special events across the city’s leading bars, hotels and restaurants.
The three-day festival will showcase the best of the Birmingham bar scene, with hand-picked venues offering two specially selected wines that will give festival goers the chance to discover something new.
Aimed at enthusiastic beginners through to connoisseurs, Birmingham Wine Weekend festival goers will be able to purchase a £10 wristband that gives them access to the £4 taster glasses on offer, as well as a host of events.
Wine lovers will be able to collect their wristbands from the Birmingham Wine Weekend Hub, which will be taking up residence at Hotel Du Vin, before setting off to explore the city.
Organised by Living For The Weekend, the team behind Birmingham Cocktail Weekend, Birmingham Wine Weekend is hoping to follow in the footsteps of its sister festival, and is set to bring over 1,500 wine lovers into the city over the weekend.
Speaking about the launch of Birmingham Wine Weekend, founder of Living For The Weekend, Alex Nicholson-Evans, comments:
“Birmingham Wine Weekend is all about encouraging participants to step outside of their comfort zone and try wines they might have previously overlooked. With a similar premise to Birmingham Cocktail Weekend, the festival is all about trying new flavours, exploring new venues, and experiencing the amazing bar scene that Birmingham has to offer.
“We’ll be revealing our list of incredible venues a little nearer the time but with some of the city’s bars with the best wine lists already signed up to take part, Birmingham Wine Weekend is set to be a corker!”
Whilst you wait for details of venues taking part, you can get your hands on the first wave of wristbands from Friday 20 October at a reduced early bird rate of £8 but snap them up quickly if you want a bargain - as there are limited numbers available. A second release of tickets at £10 will go on sale on 1 December.
