Dorset Wine Festival 5th & 6th October 2024

October 5 - October 6

A unique and huge event coming, the Dorset Wine Festival, Saturday 5th & Sunday 6th October 2024:

Open to the trade from 10am to 12, then the public until 8pm on both days, the capacity to accommodate at the show is 2500 visitors for the weekend. Out of 50 tables for wine importers and merchants, we have 40 left, as Dorset is a great place with lots of wine connoisseurs who are looking to broaden their wine horizon, as well as a thriving market for fine dining operators.

As we are launching our show for the first time, we do a very special deal for the companies who would like to join us.

Normally, a table (10/15 different wines, or wine accessories/related services) to exhibit is £1200 for both days, if you commit for two years, that will be £500 per year. It is an excellent opportunity to introduce brands. Full rules are on the organiser’s website.

The way it will work, for the visitors, when they arrive, is that they will be handed a branded tasting glass, + 5 coupons to sample various wines (5cl per sample), and then they will be able to buy directly at the exhibitor’s tables either a proper glass serving, to be consumed on site and/or bottles to take home. A lot will happen to make it a weekend to remember, with delicious food offering as well as special various animations to keep everyone entertained.

There are sponsorship options too, if you want to be more fully advertised before & during the show.

If you are keen to secure a table(s). Please contact me directly by email, and I would be delighted to arrange a virtual meeting at your convenience to explain the benefits for your producers.
