The best wines are those we drink with friends
Glasgow's Wine Festival is coming to you on 2nd June 2018. The historic and beautiful Trades Hall at 85 Glassford Street in the City Centre is the perfect venue for this special occasion.

The 2016 and 2017 festivals sold-out, even before the doors opened, so don't delay in buying your tickets. The exhibitors loved the appreciative Glasgow audiences and the feedback from the audience on the quality of exhibitors was equally enthusiastic. It was a win-win.

There will be plenty of new names and new wines in 2018 and another fine line-up of affordable master classes. The festival is a day-long celebration of wine. Your entry ticket includes unlimited tasting samples from 250 high-quality wines being poured by some of the UK's top wine retailers, importers and the winemakers themselves. There will be some food nibblies on offer and the usual fun blind tasting competition to win a bottle of Champagne.
The festival is open from 12:00 noon to 5:00pm. Tickets are 25.00 per person and you can leave and re-enter with your special wristband.

Here's why you should go
Who doesn't love good wine? You will discover great new wines as you develop your palate. The exhibitors are happy to share their wines and their love of wines with you. They'll pour your drinks and discuss their wines with you. On hand will be local character Tom Cannavan, award-winning wine writer, broadcaster, and he's there to share his knowledge with you. Tom's pioneering website wine pages is one of the world's most popular wine sites. You may know him from his long-running spot on STV The Hour, or his broadcasts on BBC Radio.
