Tell me more!


Things are uncertain at the moment. But we all want to have fun. With this in mind, we’re taking Wine Festival Winchester 2020 online!


How will it work?


Saturday 28th November will be a day of online fun, revelry and masterclasses curated by Wine Festival Winchester, in association with headline sponsor Rathbones.

A timetable of events will allow festival-goers to join masterclasses and other sessions throughout the day and evening. Participants can sign up to buy special wine tasting sets and cases at exclusive discounts, to taste along during the masterclasses and then enjoy throughout the weekend.


What will it cost?


Nothing! Though if you’d like to buy some wines to taste along, which we’d heartily recommend, then see the details for each masterclass or session on our website. These details will be appearing very soon so please do check back and you can start the planning.


If I’ve already bought a ticket for 2020, what should I do?


We’ll automatically roll your ticket over to the same session at the 2021 event, which runs from 26th to 27th November.

This year’s online event is a big investment on our part and we’re putting it on primarily to support our exhibitors and loyal visitors. We all need some fun! To make it happen, though, we need cash flow to cover costs.

So if you’d like a refund, please ask, but it would be a HUGE help if you could let us keep the funds for now to enable us to put on this year’s online event and then return with our best festival ever in 2021. Thank you!


What’s the plan?


We’ll be releasing an events timetable for the 28th November on this site very soon. For now, sit tight and we’ll be in touch again to let you know when you can start viewing sessions and making plans. Subscribe to our newsletter (below) to be first in line to hear updates.

You can expect lots of delicious, fascinating masterclasses and tasting sessions, plus other fun stuff too.

Of course, Susie & Peter will be popping up, hosting live interviews, among other things. You’ll also have a chance to ask them your burning wine questions during a light-hearted Q&A session.
