Where to find us at Wine Fairs/Festivals in 2021:

Prior to the several nationwide lock downs due to Covid-19 virus, we had hoped to meet many of you at the various Wine Festivals & Wine Fairs that we planned to attend during 2020 and 2021.  (Many  organised by the Association of Small Direct Wine-merchants with local charities.)  They are usually a great way of trying our wines in a relaxed atmosphere and often  our first meetings at these events result in a good long term “winey” relationship!
 So we had expected to follow a schedule of Fairs/Festivals similar to last year,  starting with Cheltenham in April and finishing at Wokingham in early December!

So the preliminary schedules for 2020 and 2021 would have been similar to that in 2019, but Covid -19 has intervened ruling out all events in 2020 and the first half of 2021. So below were only “possibles” as at April for the second half of 2020, depending upon restrictions on events and social gatherings being lifted in time, and that as we now know did not happen!.  So we were limited to just a few experimental Zoom Wine Tastings, which were fun but not the same as seeing 200 wine enthusiasts face to face!

For now, as at mid April 2021,  the list below is very provisional for “possible” fairs in 2021. Let us hope that we will find safe ways of holding Wine Fairs & Festivals by late summer!
