Elizabeth Rose Wines are kicking off 2021 with our virtual festival, English Red Wine Month, and there are some exciting events in store. Spread over the course of February, expect a range of wine tastings alongside plenty of in-depth chats – covering wine making, but also current affairs in the English and Welsh wine world. Speakers and guests include Robb from White Castle, Natalia & Nico from Stanlake Park and Helen from Simpsons Wine Estate – to name a few – all of whom will join us for fun tastings and exclusive interviews.
From today until the end of the month, Elizabeth Rose Wines’ exclusive English Red Wine Month programme will run online with a roster of exclusive tastings and talks.
Over the next four weeks, experience exclusive interviews, shoppable Instagram Lives and one-off events, all with the aim of helping you get to know the world of English and Welsh red wine, with a host of special guests from across the country.
You’ll find the events hosted on Instagram, which is set to feature eight guest features. The idea? To offer insight into English and Welsh red wines direct from the experts, with weekly content and fresh inspiration throughout the month of February.
