Did someone say wine? Festival? Eataly? You’ve certainly got our attention.
Following the logic that you can’t have too much of a good thing, and that when you’re on a roll, don’t stop, Eataly has announced another wine festival from the 3rd to the 5th of November.
They did one back in January and it went down well, like a nice Montepulciano. So they followed it with a prosecco festival in June. That went well too.
Now they’re back to the wine again (can’t blame ‘em, prosecco season’s coming to a close). But fear not prosecco lovers. Bubbly is still on the menu.
Eataly Wine Festival: What You Can Expect
In short: three days of wine drinking fun.
The festival will feature a chance to learn from (and drink with) some expert wine producers. They’ve come all the way from Italy for the occasion.
Glass in hand you’ll get a tour through the reds, whites and sparklings of the boot-shaped nation. The Italian experts will share their knowledge with you as you go.
Once you’ve tasted your way across the country, you can choose from a selection of wines at discount prices to take home and impress your friends with using all your new-found knowledge.
How To Get Stuck In
First you’ll need a ticket. You can get one of those here. You’ll have the option to choose from either a five-glass tasting at £20 or a ten-glass tasting at £30.
The sessions are open from 4pm to 10pm, though we doubt a tasting takes up all that time. Last entry is at 9pm.
