And for 2020, the Wine Festival is taking the leap…ONLINE! This year it’s all about being positive and making things happen so here are Susie and Peter to introduce Wine Festival Online 2020:

The sixth Wine Festival Winchester, in 2019, was a ball. Thanks everyone for making it so much fun! From visitors to exhibitors, sponsors, staff and everyone involved – this community of wine lovers truly is a thing of beauty. Here’s to the next one…(and thanks to Chris and Paddy Bowerman AGAIN)

The thrills and spills from our fifth festival, in November 2018, are captured in this brilliant mini vid. Thanks to Paddy and Chris Bowerman for their expert work – and indeed to everyone who came and made it so much fun!

Check out the action from our fourth festival, in November 2017.

Thanks to Paddy and Chris Bowerman for making this wonderful thing. And thanks also to all the wonderful people who make the festival happen – and who come and enjoy it! See if you can spot yourself…

Peter also made a brief clip with the Eat Spain Drink Spain at the 2017 event. Not sure this particular Master of Wine knows what’s in his glass at all…

Here’s a taster of the action at Wine Festival Winchester 2016.

HUGE thanks to Paddy and Chris Bowerman for putting the film together. Thanks also to the brilliant Marsicans (and Rob Eaglesham) for the soundtrack. As ever, thank you to everyone who supported the festival this year – be you sponsors, staff, exhibitors, tweeters, suppliers or (most especially) our fabulous guests.

What’s more, BBC1 featured the Wine Festival as part of their South Today coverage. Here’s the clip (for which thanks to the BBC and South Today).

Wine Festival Winchester 2015 – the video. Many thanks to Paddy and Chris Bowerman for putting the film together. Huge shout out to the brilliant Marsicans (and Rob Eaglesham) for letting us use the instrumental version of their awesome track and latest single ‘Gone in a Second’ as our soundtrack. (You can see the full track on YouTube.) Finally – thanks to everyone for coming and making the festival such fun in 2015.

Check our our fab mini-film of Wine Festival Winchester 2014! Huge thanks to the brilliant Chris (camera) and Paddy (edit). A huge shout out to Marsicans (& Rob) for kindly lending us their monster track ‘Terrapin’ in instrumental version for the original soundtrack. Find out (& listen) more via their website.

Here are some videos we made in the lead up to the 2015 festival, together with the awesome production team that are Chris and Paddy Bowerman.

First up, in the aftermath of the 2015 event, a huge THANK YOU! Here’s raising a hearty cheers to all our brilliant sponsors, exhibitors, visitors, staff, charity partner and everyone who made it so brilliant!
