PROGRAMME

13th & 14th OCTOBER 2017

We’re very pleased to invite you to join us in celebrating over 130 very distinctive, deeply diverse and frankly glorious Greek wines, exclusively brought together right here in central London.

Our festival and its founder Theodore Kyriakou of The Greek Larder, promise to make the weekend a very special occasion with a huge vinous buzz! Throughout Friday 13th & Saturday 14th, The Greek Larder together with an array of producers and importers who we respect enormously will welcome our guests to truly immerse themselves in all things Greek Wine…

Everything from understanding the origins, indigenous grapes and their characteristics, an influence of terroir and more, through to life’s simpler and divine pleasures of exemplary food and a jubilant atmosphere.

The festival is for everyone: the curious, the professional, the discerning or just the casual visitor who wishes to relax and indulge with us. Not forgetting the fantastic contribution from select guest speakers and hosts, generously sharing their insightful knowledge and stories with all of our Festival audience.
