Glasgow Festival of Wine tasting 2019

29th June 2019 @ 12:30 - 17:00


Glasgow’s very own Wine Festival is brought to you by Tom Cannavan, award-winning wine writer, broadcaster, and proud citizen of the city. Tom’s pioneering wine-pages.com is one of the world’s most popular wine sites, though you may know him best from his long-running slot on STV’s ‘The Hour’, or his broadcasts on BBC Radio.

The 2016, 2017 and 2018 Festivals completely sold-out, with every ticket gone months before the doors opened. The feedback from our exhibitors on the quality of the Glasgow audience was amazing – and the feedback from the audience on the quality of our exhibitors was equally enthusiastic! We’ll have plenty of new names and new wines in 2019, and another stunning line-up of affordable masterclasses. The 2018 Exhibtor and Programme links above will give a flavour of what to expect, and we’ll update with 2019’s information as soon as possible.

The Festival is a day-long celebration of wine. Your entry ticket includes unlimited tasting samples from 250 high quality wines being poured by winemakers and some of the UK’s top wine retailers and importers, and there’s a fun competition to win a bottle of Champagne. The Festival is open from 12:30pm until 5pm, with re-entry via the Festival wristband.

Why attend?

We love great wine, and we want to share the love with you. You’ll discover superb new wines as you hone your own palate, whilst our exhibitors will pour and discuss their wines with you – with Tom on hand all day to share his knowledge too. The historic and beautiful Trades Hall in the city centre is the perfect venue to add to the sense of occasion!

  • 250 very high quality wines available to sample
  • Superb value masterclasses featuring the world’s greatest wines
  • Discounts on wines to purchase or order on the day
  • The Festival Café, open throughout the show
  • Summer in the city: enjoy the land of the (almost) midnight sun
  • No booking fees on tickets
