Sat 2 June

I’m delighted to say I’m returning to Taste of Grampian for the second year, holding four (ticketed) wine master-classes during the day and appearing with celebrity chef James Martin at the launch dinner the previous night. This is a really large and popular food festival near Aberdeen - it was brilliant last year and I‘m looking forward to it again! 


Wed 20 June

I'll be hosting a special California tasting at the renowned Nobody Inn in Devon. Guests enjoy 7 premium Californian wines with top-notch canapés to match at an informal evening of tasting and conversation. Tickets £25 contact the Nobody on 01647 252394 


Sat/Sun 14 & 15 July

Dorset Seafood Festival - always a joy to be at this free and lively festival weekend on Weymouth harbour in aid of The Fishermen’s Mission charity, presenting Champagne tastings on stage and popping up to do scheduled but informal tastings on local premium spirits stands for Black Cow Vodka, Conker Gin and Pothecary Gin. See for more details.


31 July & 1 August

The huge and wonderful Telegraph Gin Experience is back, this time at the gorgeous Hurlingham Club in south-west London. Two sessions, each day, afternoon and evening, plenty of new gin brands, barbecue and masterclasses. I am co-hosting with the wonderful spirits experts and authors Neil Ridley and Joel Harrison. See for more details and join us for a real summer treat.
