Red wine represents 55% of restaurant wine sales

The Guildford Wine Festival will take place at Guildford Cathedral on 12th and 13th May, with a session on the Friday evening from 7pm-11pm, an afternoon session of the Saturday from 12pm-4pm and a final session of the Saturday evening from 7pm-11pm.

The festival will feature over 140 international wines including champagnes and premium wines, alongside wine experts and producers. In addition, there will also be live music, entertainment, concessions, food, money off wine vouchers and more.

To taste the wines, you will need to ‘pay’ with wine tokens. Each token gets you a tasting measure of wine although for some of the more expensive wines, you will need two or even three tokens. Extra tokens can be bought on the night if you run out!

We will also have a number of wine talks on the night. These will include wine samples and can also be paid for with tokens. Please book as soon as you arrive as numbers will be limited.

Local wines and producers will also feature with their own special section to celebrate the strength and diversity of wine production in this area. These will include Albury Vineyard (nr Guildford), Blackdown Ridge (Haslemere), Greyfriars (Puttenham) and Jenkyn Place (Bentley).

Entry to each festival will be just £10 per session if booked in advance, with wine tokens also available at a reduced price when booked together. Corporate and group rates will also be available for parties and larger bookings.
