Everything you need to know about the Côtes du Rhône Wine Festival

Celebrate Côtes du Rhône wines at some of London’s top restaurants throughout the month of October with the Rhône Wine Festival

Back by popular demand for its second year, the Rhône Wine Festival is returning for another series of events taking place in the most exciting restaurants, wine bars, wine shops, independent merchants and supermarkets all across the UK.

What do these venues have in common? Well, they'll all be celebrating the diversity of the Côtes du Rhône wine region through bespoke experiences and events dedicated to Côtes du Rhône wines. Events that all fit in line with the wine's signature style and ethos, of course. Think creative food and Côtes du Rhône wine pairings, special Côtes du Rhône wine flights, an exclusive Côtes du Rhône supperclub, Côtes du Rhône wine tastings and more. There's plenty of excuses to gather up all your friends and family in October to enjoy some superlative Côtes du Rhône wines together. Especially if you live in London.

From a Côtes du Rhône wine list takeover at Two Lights and a Gipsy Jazz Night at Mercato Metropolitano's buzzy spot The French Corner to a special lunchtime wine pairing at La Dame de Pic and a Côtes du Rhône tasting supper at Davy's Wine bar in Canary Wharf, there's enough events going at this festival throughout the entire month to make your October the envy of Bacchus himself.

How about dinner and a Côtes du Rhône natural wine pairing at La Despensa where each course, inspired by the Southern French region of Côtes du Rhône, comes paired with a unique wine curated by biodynamic & natural wine importer Dynamic Wines? That sounds rather lovely to us. As does the seasonal feast at Kinovino that involves a of Eric Rhomer’s 'Autumn Tale' screening followed by a four-course dinner curated by chef and food writer Anna Barnett along with a tasting of four unique Côte du Rhône wines selected for the occasion by sommelier and founder of VinaLupa, Emily Harman.

Yes, you best believe that London is set to be turned into the best place in the world to sample some of the appellation's finest produce outside of the actual wine region.
