Oxford Wine Festival confirms 2015 line-up for eagerly awaited event

Published:  04 August, 2015

The final line-up for the Oxford Wine Festival has now been confirmed. The full exhibitor list now includes over 40 of the UK's leading wine merchants and covers 26 wine-producing countries.

The festival will take place at the Oxford Union on 21 and 22 August.

The festival will be divided into a number of zones, including old world wines, new world wines, English wine-tasting, and emerging regions.

The English room will feature Ambriel Sparkling, Coates & Seely, Oatley Vineyard and Gusbourne Estate.

Visitors to the emerging regions zone will have the opportunity to explore a range of rare wines and varietals, many of which offer considerable value for money. Countries represented include Brazil, Georgia, and Turkey. Andrea Hargrave MW will be presenting Indian wineries through Character Wines.
