A pick of 10 varied flights that’ll give you a delicious taste of some of the worlds renowned or unique wines. Some of these flights I’ve selected as they give a great insight into the diversity of a particular grape or region, while others are a more off-piste choice to try something that will really open your eyes to some emerging regions and lesser known styles. The venues you get to enjoy them in aren’t too shabby either. All flights are £5 with a festival wristband and available to try all week long. Bottoms up!
