The organisers of the Vineyard & Winery Show, taking place on 23 November 2022 have been overwhelmed with support from the trade for this year’s show. 

“Over 90 stands have already booked to attend our second event, meaning that we are almost sold out for this year already, even though we have five months to go,” commented Jamie McGrorty, who is actively involved with the show and is also publisher of Vineyard Magazine. 

The organisers maintain that while they always do their best to put on a great event, the show wouldn’t achieve what it does unless the industry was doing so well. “The industry continues to go from strength to strength, producing some of the world’s best wines,” commented Jamie. “Without the continued efforts of UK growers and wine makers we would not have the thriving industry that we see today. Viticulture is the UK’s fastest growing agricultural economy and shows no signs of slowing down. We are glad to be part of it”.

Highlights of the day include seminars which will be organised by WineGB at the event this year, offering advice for both the wine maker and grower. 

Also new for 2022 is the event’s first ever ‘Show Dinner’. Jointly organised by WineGB & Vineyard Magazine and taking place on the evening of the show, guests will be invited to try some of the UK’s top 100 wines that were shown during the day while sitting down to enjoy a three course meal. 

“We had a good number of visitors and exhibitors in 2021 and we expect to build visitor numbers for 2022 so it made sense to provide further opportunities for people to get together and catch up with one another” commented Jamie. Simon Thorpe MW, CEO of WineGB added: “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 years’ endeavours with a look back on the vintage and a look forward to what will be a successful Christmas trading period”.
