Whilst there are plenty of wines to try around the Fair and lots of knowledgeable people to talk to, if you would like to learn a bit more about wine why not attend a Workshop? This year, in addition to Winemakers and Experts you will find Workshops from local and well known wine journalists and wine writers. Tickets to each Workshop are limited to 16 and are only available at the Fair on a first come first served basis, limited to one workshop per person. We will post a timetable of Workshops nearer the events.
If you're not afraid of a little exercise, why not take a Wine Walk with one of our experts. A variety of different experts will take groups of up to eight visitors around the Fair, talking about and tasting different wines that are of specific interest to you. More information about Workshops and Wine Walks will be available in your Show Guide and at the Workshop Booking Area at the Fair.* Tesco reserves the right to make amends to the showguide and prices at any time.
What they say
“This was brilliant. Learnt so much. All of our opinions were valued and sought. Really well worth doing”
“Our friends had told us about the Tesco Wine Fair, but I'm not very wine knowledgable so was a little nervous about what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised - all the people being the stands were so helpful and friendly - I learned loads!”
“In my experience The Tesco Wine Fair Workshops are a great opportunity to show a diverse range of wines to an inquisitive, responsive and enthusiastic audience”
