The event will be hosted by wine writer Oz Clarke and Tom Surgey, the drinks expert on ITV’s Love Your Weekend.

The duo will introduce visitors to a stellar line-up of wine producers from all over the globe giving people the perfect opportunity to taste and discover their next favourite bottles.  

It will also be an opportunity to fill up the wine rack as many of the exhibitors will have special show offers on their wines.

There will be hundreds of wines to taste – all included in the ticket price - and wines of all descriptions including reds, whites, rosés, sparkling, sweet and fortified. Ticketholders can mingle with the experts and talk wine with the people behind the labels.

Oz Clarke said: “Bristol is a fantastic food and drink city and for centuries it was Britain’s main wine port so a fitting place for The Great Bristol Wine Fest. There's so much to celebrate - and that's what we’ll be doing as we welcome local producers as well as those from around the globe. Join us. We’ll have fun!”

Event Manager Clare Malec said: “If you’re new to wine and you have never been to a tasting, we want you there. Both Oz and Tom will point you in the direction of some top tipples to taste and start you on the road to vinous pleasure. 

“If you are passionate about wine and cannot wait to share the next drop with friends, they want you to come and find something new and exciting. If wine is important to you, they want to show you the stuff you never knew existed. It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert or an enthusiast – just grab a glass and join in.”

The Great Bristol Wine Fest takes place on Saturday, April 27, at Paintworks Event Space, Bath Road, Bristol BS4 3EH. There are two sessions, one from 12noon-3pm and the other from 4pm-7pm. A separate ticket is required for each tasting session and they cost £35 per person per session here.
