London Wine Week is here again (May 18-24), with its usual carte of tastings, tours and special events. There’s too much for us to list it in detail, but the list of participating bars and restaurants includes some Time Out favourites.
Bar Pepito is offering a flight of three of its drop-dead delicious sherries. Hawksmoor Spitalfields is shaking things up with Figure it Out, a cocktail combining fig, lime, and the Italian sparkling red Bracchetto d’Acqui. And Mission in Bethnal Green will be offering a daily-changing flight from its daily-changing list.
You can buy wristbands online for £10 that get you into the tastings for £5 by clicking here. And if you’re looking for something a bit quirkier, have a look at the Lawn Club run by Celebrity Cruises: bring a picnic towel and get a tasting guided by (The Wizard of) Oz Clarke, then top up your glass and play lawn games. On Great Newport Street. No, we can’t believe it either. But there are two sessions on Friday May 19, with tickets £15 a pop – or £12 for wristband wearers. To receive your discount code, email firstname.lastname@example.org with your booking reference.
