Join in our weekly English and Welsh Wine 'Socials'

#EnglishWineNight and #WelshWineNight

7pm every Friday
24April - 5 June

On 10 April, Black Chalk winemaker, Jacob Leadley, led the nation to join in the biggest collective online wine tasting of English and Welsh wines in #theBIGenglishwinegoodfriday.

We want to continue this Social English and Welsh wine Happy Hour and invite you to take part on each or any of the next Fridays. We’ll be sharing videos, photos and comments and offering a competition to win a case of wine (6 bottles), and of course looking forward to chatting with you online!

Each Wine Friday we will highlight one of our wine regions. This will include inviting a representative producer from the region (generally the regional chairman) to choose the winning photo posted on social media and share a video to introduce the region. Look out for our pages introducing each region ahead of their evening.

You can find out more about where to find English and Welsh wine from our SHOP LOCAL listings of vineyards and retailers offering online sales.
