London Wine Week made a comeback last week to take over the city of London for its third consecutive year. All you needed was a wristband and you had full access to over 125 venues across London which offered a variety of wine flights, food and drink pairings and even special offers on corkage.
Visitors were able to learn more about how wine is made, how to pair wine with food and what wines are best to drink at certain times of the year or just enjoy delightful wine in the (surprising) sunshine that delighted London for the bank holiday weekend.
With over 500 different wines to taste, keen drinkers and wannabe sommeliers came together in the sun and explored wines that they may have never heard of before. But the back-bone for restaurants and bars offering these wines by the glass; Le Verre de Vin, our wine and Champagne preservation systems were vital in supporting around 15% of the venues with their wine by the glass programmes.
Below are a few of our customers that are using Le Verre de Vin to offer an unbeatable wine by the glass list, not just for London Wine Week, so if you’re a restaurateur and interested in our products or just love drinking wonderful wine and Champagne go and visit these guys.
