English Wine Week 2010
English wines will take centre stage next week as vineyards, wine merchants, farm shops, delicatessens, hotels, pubs and restaurants celebrate English Wine Week 2010, which takes place from Saturday 29th May to Sunday 6th June and includes the Spring Bank Holiday.

English Wine Week is a countrywide campaign to highlight English wines. During the Week, vineyards across the country, from the Scilly Isles to Yorkshire, will be opening their doors to welcome visitors with tours, tastings and special events or offers. Other local and regional outlets will also be supporting English wines by holding in house tastings, special menus and many other exciting promotional activities.

Some of the highlights of this year’s English Wine Week include the Mercure Hotel Group whose key hotels in England will be offering their dining guests a complimentary glass of wine from a local vineyard during the Week. Other participants include The Wine Society and Laithwaites Wine. In Devon, local vineyards are collaborating again to host Devon Wine Week, ensuring that on every day of the Week there will be an event or activity either at a vineyard or local outlet. Working alongside them are retailers and restaurants that will be highlighting English wines with their menus – showing just how delicious the marriage of local food is with locally-sourced wine is. In Wales, Welsh Wine Week will also be celebrated with activities taking place in a number of vineyards.

There certainly promises to be a buzz about English wines this coming week. Visitors will be able to discover just how delicious English wines are and how readily accessible they are proving to be.

Enthusiasm for and interest in English wines continues to grow. Recent news of their success in this year’s international competitions further illustrates their world class quality. Retailers are responding positively, with listings in major chains as well as independent wine merchants, both on the high street and online. More English wines are also available through the on trade, from top London restaurants to local eateries in the wine regions.

With the summer season just around the corner, English Wine Week provides the perfect opportunity to celebrate the wines that are produced on our doorstep. All events and participating outlets are listed by region and by date on the English Wine Week Website, which is constantly updated.
