WineGB and Vineyard Magazine to host a post-harvest celebration dinner on the evening of the Vineyard & Winery Show.
Vineyard Magazine and WineGB are joining forces to host a post-harvest, and post-show, dinner on the evening of the Vineyard & Winery Show on 23 November.
The celebration event will bring together vineyard owners, winemakers and operators with many of the goods and service suppliers to the industry. Last year’s first Vineyard & Winery Show in November attracted a large crowd of show visitors and exhibitors. The timing of both the show and an industry dinner provides a good opportunity for the industry community to get together – being after harvest and as the year comes to an end, it is a chance to look back on the year and celebrate its successes.
The dinner will take place in the Clive Emson Hall at the Kent County Showground, where the Show itself is taking place on another part of the site.
“With the number of visitors and exhibitors we had last year, and what we are anticipating in 2022, it made sense to provide some further opportunities to get people together and catch up with each other,” comments Jamie McGrorty, publisher of Vineyard Magazine.
Simon Thorpe MW, CEO of WineGB adds: “By the end of November, the 2022 harvest will be gathered in and what better time and place for our industry to come together and celebrate another year’s endeavours with a look back on the vintage and a look forward to what will hopefully be a successful Christmas trading period”.
The evening will include a tasting of award-winning UK wines, a paying bar serving local drinks, dinner and entertainment. Tickets are on sale now at £75 per head. There are also opportunities to take a full table so that you can invite your own guests. For more information, please contact Angelina Howe at WineGB: firstname.lastname@example.org
