Three Wine Men Event Photo See events here →

Three Wine Men are three great mates who love wine and want to share it with the world!  You will know them from the tv – Oz Clarke (the one who managed to get James May to move from beer to wine), Tim Atkin MW (recently named the 5th most influential wine expert in the world) and Olly Smith (aka Jolly Olly from BBC’s Saturday Kitchen). Now you can meet them in the flesh and come and taste with them.

If you’re new to wine and you have never been to a tasting, they want you here.  They will point you in the direction of some top tipples to taste and start you on the road to vinous pleasure.  If you are passionate about wine and cannot wait to share the next drop at a dinner party they want you to come and find something new and exciting.  If wine is important to you they want to show you the stuff you never knew existed.  It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert, an enthusiast or just enjoy the occasional slurp – when you arrive just grab a glass and join in.

These events give you the chance to taste wines of every type and every style all under one roof.  There’s red wine, white wine, rose wine, sparkling wine, sweet wine, natural wine, organic wine.  Whatever your taste we will find something to thrill you from your tongue to your toes. For the price of ticket you have an unlimited chance to taste hundreds of wines in one session.  As Oz Clarke says ‘If you can do that you are a better person than me!

You can buy too and many of the exhibitors will have special show offers so you can save money while stocking up the wine rack.

Wine is Oz, Tim and Olly’s passion and they want to share it with you!  So get ready to dip yourself in deliciousness.

How do Three Wine Men wine tastings work…

On arrival

Grab a glass and a wine tasting book then get going!

The Hub with the Wine & Spirit Education Trust

For guidance on which wines you may enjoy most check in at The Hub.  A short questionnaire later you can slap on your ‘Wines like…’ Olly, Tim or Oz’ sticker so exhibitors can match you up with bottles you may like. (Alternatively, zoom on by if you know what you’re looking for…)

The wines

You are free to taste an unlimited tasting samples from the hundreds of wines on offer from all over the world (we do encourage you to use the spittoons!).  Our aim is to find you the perfect tipple to thrill you from your tongue to your toes!

Meet Oz, Tim and Olly

They’re in the tasting rooms throughout the event to inform, entertain and generally join in the tasting fun.

Taste and learn

Ask as many questions as you like – don’t be shy!  Oz, Tim, Olly and all the buffs behind the tasting tables are there to guide you on your vinous journey, whether you’re an expert, an enthusiast or just enjoy the occasional slurp.  Turn left into a Masterclass to enjoy first class insights up close and personal with our experts.

Can I take wine home?

There’s absolutely no pressure to purchase at the events.  However, many of the wines you taste will be available to buy with exclusive show offers and discounts!  You can buy in several ways:

  • Buy by the bottle at the event. If you buy multiple bottles you can leave them with us and pick them up at the end of the event.  We will be delighted to order a cab to take them home with you.
  • Place an order with the standholder to be delivered to you home at your convenience after the event.
  • Highlight your favourite wines in the tasting book.  All the contact details for the stands are there so you can place your order after the event (but watch out – many of the show offers are only available at the event!).

Au revoir

It’s been our pleasure having you with us and we wish you a safe onward journey.  We can call you a cab or you can head off under your own steam.  See you next year for the next leg of your wine tasting adventure!
