The Vineyard & Winery Show, organised by Vineyard Magazine, have confirmed that this year’s show will take place on 20 November 2024.

Held for the first time in 2021, the show is now in it’s fourth year and has grown considerably in that time, from 80 exhibitors in the first year to 120 in 2023, providing growers and wine makers with a comprehensive display of equipment to view from a range of suppliers.

“Many visitors tell us that they have no need to attend the European shows, because they can find everything they need at The Vineyard & Winery Show,” commented Jamie McGrorty, Vineyard & Winery Show organiser and Publisher of Vineyard.

Extra hall added for new exhibitors

The Vineyard & Winery Show has seen so much demand from exhibitors in the first three years that for 2024 it will be adding a large marquee to enable more exhibitors to attend. Bolted onto the back of the John Hendry Pavilion, it will create space for up to 40 new exhibitors opposite a third wine tasting hub. “We simply could not fit in everyone who wanted to exhibit, and it just didn’t feel right turning companies away who want to join us, so we are really pleased that we have not only come up with a plan to accommodate these, but that we can also create a third wine tasting hub that will be central to this new area”.

All of the elements of last year’s show will return – such as the popular seminars hosted by WineGB and sponsored by Ferovinum, providing advice on a range of topics for growers and producers. The Top 100 UK wines will once again be available for tasting, providing buyers an opportunity to taste some of the best wines that the UK has to offer, as well as giving producers a chance to benchmark their own wines. “There is always a fantastic buzz around the wine Hubs”, commented Rebecca Farmer, Editor of Vineyard. “It is hard to put into words the atmosphere that is present around the wine hubs, you really have to come to experience it, but it’s so nice to see producers and buyers coming together in one place to discuss the wines and to plan the coming season” added Rebecca.

Thanks to our sponsors

Five major sponsors, NFU Mutual, Core Equipment, Hutchinsons, Viitfruit and Royston Labels have all signed up to support this year’s show, with a new sponsor soon to be added to this elite line up being announced in the May edition of Vineyard.

“We cannot thank our sponsors enough for the support they give, because without this the show simply could not go ahead. We are privileged to be working within an industry that is not only achieving great things but one where companies with different services and skill-sets work together to enable that success” commented Jamie. “We look forward to welcoming everyone to this year’s show in November, after what we hope will be another good year for UK producers” concluded Jamie.
