A well-known figure on the Edinburgh wine scene, Tom Cannavan is an award-winning wine writer and publisher of wine-pages.com and brings you the Edinburgh Festival of Wine, an unmissable day for the capital’s wine lovers. There will be over 300 brilliant wines on tasting – included in your ticket price – fantastic discounts if you choose to buy, and a superb programme of masterclass tastings with some of the world’s greatest wines. Tom will be there too of course.
Tom and his team have run a major wine festival in Glasgow since 2002, and he co-hosted a popular Edinburgh wine fair from 2011 until 2016. Since 2017 he has brought his Festival of Wine to Edinburgh, with 2017’s and 2018’s events selling out completely and rave reviews from the wine lovers who attended. The Festival is open from 12:30pm until 5pm, with re-entry via the Festival wristband.
We have plenty of new names and new wines in 2019, so please see our List of Exhibitors to see who has already confirmed they will be there. The full 2019 programme, including details of our optional masterclasses, can be viewed at Edinburgh Programme.
