London Wine Week Festival is back to Devonshire Square!
5/06/2017 - 9/06/2017 5:00 PM - 10:00 PM
A CITY SUMMER OASIS FILLED WITH WINE
London Wine Week is returning to Devonshire Square this June but with a few exciting new twists!
From 5th to 9th june, Devonshire Square will once again be hosting the hub of London Wine Week as the festival brings a plethora of global pop-ups to the square and involves our resident wine bars.
As the home for London Wine Week, expect brand new names such as Wines of Argentina who will be shipping their vibrant Latin American lifestyle and vintages across to London in the form of a deconstructed shipping container-turned-bar, as well as some favourite regions of previous years including Vins de Provence, with their sun-soaked rosés, and Wines of Portugal, with their fresh whites and complex reds.
There will also be a brand new sparkling wine from Freixenet to taste, which is yet to be globally launched - stay tuned for when the DrinkUp team let this fizzy cat out of the bag.
Devonshire Square will also return as the festival's festival pass collection point from Monday to Friday. All pop-ups will be serving £5 wine flights for LWW festival pass holders.

Ferro says: “My artistic and aesthetic ideal is to merge writing and invention in a constant flow of ideas through Classical, Contemporary, Jazz and free music.” The performance will also include some Jazz and open improvisation, as well as a selection of virtuoso classical pieces by Chopin, Debussy and Gershwin. The open air concert is part of the Devonshire Square’s “Art for Love” Christmas Festival, a 4-week programme of FREE attendance world-class artistic performances, organised and curated by the Devonshire Square Events Team to support The Connection www.connection-at-stmartins.org.uk, London's busiest homeless charity, in aid of which the Devonshire Square’s community will be fundraising from 1st to 21st December.
