English Wine Week is here and Roast restaurant are giving people a chance to show off their skills

English Wine Week is upon us, and that gives us an excuse (not that we needed one) to try some great English wines!

What is English Wine Week you ask? Well, rather obviously, its a whole week dedicated to celebrating the great wines that the UK is producing (don’t hate on us Europe, you still make banging grape juice and all). Taking place between 26th May – 3rd June, this is the week to try something new from some English vineyards.

Think you have a nose for wine? Well you are in luck! Roast Restaurant in Borough Market are giving people the opportunity to show off their olfactory skills this week by pitting a selection of English wines against their European counterparts at an event on Tuesday 29th May.

Roast has one of the biggest wine lists in the game, with over 25% of their white wines coming from good old Blighty. If you think you can spot the English wine, they are hosting two events next week that will let you try to do just that. Guests will be invited to enter as a team and will be treated to a selection of small plates each paired with both an English and foreign wine and asked to identify the homegrown tipple for a chance to win a prize. With competition from Italy, France and Portugal, to name a few, the evening is bound to bring out the connoisseur in even the most amateur of wine tasters.

Not only that, but the guys at Roast have also created a unique ‘Market Menu‘ celebrating the ‘Best of British’ in a partnership with Chapel Down, an English Winemaker from Kent.

We will be there on Tuesday trying to spot the English wines (and hopefully succeeding, at least a bit, we’ll take a 40% success rate or so!).

Tickets for the English Wine Week event are on sale now and will be priced at £55 per person, and the Chapel Market Menu is available daily for £40pp including wines.
