For four days this summer over the extended Bank Holiday weekend, Liverpool will come alive with a brand-new festival – Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux – which coincides with the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations across Thursday 2nd – Sunday 5th June. And it’s set to be the most delicious weekend of the year.
Featuring an array of free activities including immersive takeovers by leading restauranteurs and chefs, cookery demonstrations and food inspired cultural events, many restaurants will also offer special festival menus to create a unique visitor experience for locals and tourists alike. Adding to the excitement of this new food and drink festival is a wine experience dedicated to the wine from the French region of Bordeaux.
Limited early bird tickets at £18.00 per adult for the Bordeaux Wine Experience are now on sale, taking place at Liverpool’s Town Hall. Here, French flair will meet Scouse style with a touch of theatre for all to enjoy, blending the classic appeal of the breath-taking building with modern flourishes including a DJ and MC.
The iconic region has over 6000 vineyards producing a sumptuous array of red, white, sparkling and rosé wines, from affordable bottles through to special occasion vintages, and Liverpool is lucky enough to be the UK city to host the famous Bordeaux Wine Festival. The Bordeaux Wine Experiences will run from midday daily with the last session from 19.30pm and includes six tasting glasses of Bordeaux wine; a complimentary Bordeaux wine glass; entrance to wine masterclasses throughout the day; and the opportunity to talk to the world’s finest wine producers.
Julia Huf, Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux’s Project Director, says: “It’s a truly fantastic moment for Liverpool to be the only UK city hosting the Bordeaux Wine Festival in 2022 as part of our most delicious weekend of the year at Taste Liverpool. Drink Bordeaux. This is the most famous wine-producing region in the world and they will be showcasing some of their fabulous drinks during our Bordeaux Wine Experience at each day of the festival.”
