Wine Festival Winchester is a chance for everyone (no matter how much or little you know) to enjoy a feast of fabulous wines in the company of Susie & Peter, Masters of Wine and TV presenters. Get a flavour of the festival via these words and pictures or these short videos.

2020 PLANS

Things are going to be different this year, though! You can still enjoy delicious wines and the company of Susie and Peter plus a host of other brilliant wine people – but this year the party comes to your home because we’re doing it all online. We’re busy preparing a tip-top schedule of outstanding masterclasses for you to enjoy on Sat 28th November in the comfort of your own home. The idea being you can choose masterclasses to join in on throughout the day and pre-order wines to taste along. There’ll also be live interviews with wine celebs, a Q&A with Susie & Peter, the odd competition for fun. Plus anything else we can dream up before then. Please do join in! We all need a bit of fun and this one’s to get us in the festive spirit… 


There’ll be a whole range of wines and producers to sample in our online masterclasses, from world class English sparkling to Burgundy, Chile and beyond. More details to follow in due course.


Our masterclass hosts are offering you exclusive wine tasting cases at great deals so you can taste along. Hopefully we can encourage them to give you special offers to buy the wines you particularly liked afterwards to. It’s called stocking up for Christmas…


Will be scheduled on a regular basis throughout the day. Select the ones you want to do in advance, order the wines, then on the day just sit back at the designated hour to taste along. It’s educational, honest. 


While we may not be able to enjoy the stunning sights and sounds of Winchester this year in quite the same way, this still remains the spiritual home of the festival. We’re very much looking forward for business as usual next year (2021 dates are 26-27 November). In the meantime, here’s raising a glass to this beautiful, historic Hampshire city.
