This event is all about showcasing and celebrating these wines, giving visitors the unique opportunity to taste and buy direct from some of England’s best producers, as well as try a range of award-winning, rare wines from a dedicated English Wine Bar.
Wines of England will bring the experience of the country to London with a live vineyard plant installation, as well as offering exclusive tours, leaving from Canopy Market straight into the heart of wine Estates in Surrey, Kent or Essex.
The event will sit alongside Canopy Market’s full stable of regular artisan produce, street food, drinks, designer-makers and live music, offering plenty to eat, drink and enjoy in the heart of King’s Cross.
