CHRISTMAS INDIE WINE FAIR - Meet the Merchants 2019
The great wine event of Yorkshire! For all you wine lovers, please join Yorkshire Wine School on the evening of Friday, 22nd November for our annual ‘Meet the Merchants’ Wine Fair. Held in the iconic Leeds Corn Exchange, you will be armed with a glass and surrounded by a huge selection of wine to taste from the best of Yorkshire’s independent wine merchants. What a great opportunity to pick out some corkers for your Christmas case!
The merchants will be happy to talk you through their offerings, helping you find your new favourite bottle. Come ready to pair your wine with cheese and charcutierie. Sweet mama! We can’t imagine a more heavenly way to spend a Friday evening!
Yorkshire is alive and buzzing with a fantastic array of independent wine shops and online retailers, everything from your general merchant to boutique specialists, and we are delighted to welcome so many of them here in Leeds. Make sure you grab your ticket quick, because this event is gonna be popular!
As our own customers know, at Yorkshire Wine School we don't sell wine; we are an independent wine event and education business. But, at this event, as it is a showcase for some of our favourite local wine merchants, we are offering them the opportunity to take orders for wines on the evening and arrange for collection or delivery with you. Your Christmas wine buying could all be sorted before December has even begun! There is no additional charge for the tasting of the wines, everything is included in the general admission ticket price itself.
Please Note: as this is a walkaround wine fair there will not be seating available for people at the event.
