LWW 2016: a look back

A look back at the festival's third year in 2016.

London Wine Week 2016 returned to the city for its third year this May, bringing incredible wines from around the world to London's best bars. Setting up home in the beautiful Devonshire Square, with its picturesque lawns and terraces, there we hosted an array of pop-ups from a Provencal beach bar to a Portuguese journey of discovery, a sparkling English wine courtyard and our very own DrinkUp.London bar.
Outside of Devonshire Square over 125 bars around the city served £5 Wine Flights while fantastic events such as rooftop BBQs, tastings and banquets flooded London in delicious wine. We studiously learnt loads, from reading labels to always grabbing the back bottle of rosé, we hungrily sipped and snacked, pairing wine with everything from oysters to cheese and we worked our way through flights, comparing light reds with punchy whites, and we enjoyed vermouth in all its forms and colours.
