A number of your favourite Bankside venues have been handpicked to be part of the first ever London Wine Week which launches next week, 2-8 June.
London Wine Week is a celebration of the capital’s emerging and passionate wine scene.

Many venues will also be hosting special events, tastings and more.
citizenM will be offering a choice of two aromatic Crozes Hermitage; a fresh and floral white and a smooth and rich red. Pair with a charcuterie board for one, only £3.50.
Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Bar invite you to an exclusive event on Wednesday 4 June. Take a voyage through the grapes and flavours of the Mediterranean from France to Lebanon with tasters of ten different wines, each paired with a snack. £55 per person. As well as great wines, wristband holders can get a Carpano vermouth tasting flight of three different vermouths for just £5 throughout London Wine Week.
Receive a free glass of champagne at Vinopolis if you buy tickets to the Wine Experience during the week (open Wednesday – Sunday). Wristband holders can also get 10% off tickets to Barrel of Laughs – a wine tasting and comedy night on Friday 6 June.
