LOVE WINE Launches Winter Wine Festival
Wine lovers in the Midlands have their very own wine fair to look forward to with the launch of the Love Wine Festival in Birmingham in November. Featuring a mouth-watering mix of wines, assorted drinks, artisan foods and wine-related gifts, the event will take place at its most natural home in the city centre – the Hotel du Vin.
The emphasis is on fun and helping wine drinkers find the wines they like, with the added bonus of being able to stock up for Christmas and buy a present or two as well. For those who would appreciate a little extra guidance, well-known TV wine pundits Joe Wadsack (BBC 2 Food and Drink) and Helen McGinn (The Alan Titchmarsh Show) will be hosting tours and tasting sessions. The organisers are local resident, Laura Clay, and well known Master of Wine (at least to Lidl shoppers), Richard Bampfield, both of BYWine, along with Nicola Everns, an experienced co-ordinator of wine events. Laura, who is wine contributor for Edge magazine, explains, “At LoveWine, we have a relaxed, informal and fun approach to wine; we know our stuff but are totally unstuffy”.
