The Top 5 Things to do During English Wine Week 2024: Hattingley Valley Events and More!

English Wine Week has come around again, and this year it’s bigger and better than ever! So, we thought we’d better let you know about some of the exciting things we’ll be getting up to. Of course, we would love to see you there, but if you are unable to attend, not to worry, we’ve got you covered with a special online promotion to celebrate English Wine Week in style. Stay tuned to the end for an exclusive online offer (Or if you are impatient, scroll down to the bottom and get there quicker - we won’t blame you!).  Want to learn more about what English Wine Week is all about? Check out last years blog Celebrate English Wine Week: The Hattingley Way for more information on how it got started.

When is English Wine Week 2024?

Of course, we wouldn't want you to miss out on the celebrations, so mark your calendars, because this year English Wine Week takes place from the 15th to the 23rd of June. With so much to see and do during the week, it's hard to decide where to start. But what we’d recommend is visiting your most local producer first (and if that’s not us, we’d say visit them second!). After all, championing your local English Wine producers is what English Wine Week is all about!

What’s happening for English Wine Week at Hattingley Valley?

As the fastest growing sector of the Agricultural industry in this country, there are now well over 1000 commercial vineyards in English Wine Of course, you won’t be able to visit them all (although, you can certainly try!). We think Hampshire would be a good place to start! But, we wouldn’t want to be too biased, that’s why this year we’re holding events spanning from the bustling metropolis to the tranquil rolling hills of the South Downs.

So, without further ado, here our the top English Wine Week events and promotions we’ll be holding and recommending, during this year's festivities:
