The Wine Weekend

Whilst you might currently be enjoying a dry January after the excesses of the festive period, something to look forward to is a brand new wine event for the public which is being held in Maidstone on Saturday 16th July 2022.

The Wine Weekend is a new event to celebrate and showcase viticulture here in the heart of Kent’s wine region.  We are delighted to have been involved in helping to set up this initiative along with Ulric Allsebrook of Frederic Bistro, the Maidstone Business Improvement District and Kent County Council.

On offer will be a delicious range of wines from local producers to taste and buy along with food and other refreshments.

Blair Gulland who has been instrumental in setting the event up comments:  “What better way to enjoy the wines of our many producers here in the Garden of England on a sunny, summer day, which will also bring people into Maidstone for the weekend and to enjoy the hospitality of the town centre.  Initiatives such as this are important for our high street and local businesses as it provides an opportunity to showcase some exciting and very delicious wines from our fantastic local producers. The setting of Sessions House will be a stunning backdrop to what we hope will become an annual event.”

Tickets will cost £15 each and  The  Wine  Weekend will be held in the beautiful courtyard of Sessions House, the buildings of Kent County Council.  Further details for the public and exhibitors is available at
