Join titans of wine appreciation – Charlie Womersley and Oz Clarke – and Wales’ national treasure Max Boyce – as they sample wines from the country’s finest vineyards and wineries, via a fun-filled online tasting to mark Welsh Wine Week.  The team will also be joined by Robb Merchant, Chairman of the Welsh Vineyard Association.

A special, live wine tasting session featuring these four personalities, plus UK wine expert Kieron Atkinson,
will take place on Monday 27th July at 7pm and is watchable on our YouTube channel.

Oz, Charlie and Kieron will be combining decades of wine expertise whilst sampling a variety of sparkling and still wines produced by three vineyards from across Wales, and joining them, Max will taste, enjoy and support the Welsh wine industry.

As a champion of all things Welsh, Max was the perfect guest to ask to help promote the country’s superb and diverse range of wines, as part of Welsh Wine Week which runs from 27th July to 2nd August 2020.

We’re going to have some fun!   – Oz Clarke
