Our pick of things to do this month. Wine lovers, it’s is all the inspiration you need…
English Wine Week, from June 19th to 27th, celebrates the hundreds of vineyards that operate all over England. A host of special events will be taking place to mark the event, organised by Wine GB – check here for our top recommendations.
Enjoy sampling over 30 types of pink wines at London’s Covent Garden’s rosé festival until June 6th. A host of Pizza pop-up rosé bars will operate from midday until 10pm Monday to Wednesday and until 11pm Thursday to Sunday. Rosé lovers have yet another excuse to drink the pink stuff later in the month for National Rosé Day on June 12th and International Rosé Day on June 25th.
Join Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teacher Jade Crystal Reynolds on at Tinwood in Chichester and get your zen on among the vines. The 60-minute sessions take place on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm until the end of August and cost £15pp. Booking is essential.
Cast aside thoughts of a 1970s’ drink for housewives, vermouth is back and it’s cooler than ever. The No.3 S.E. Dry Vermouth is a collaboration between The London Vermouth Company and Sussex chef Simon Edwards and features English Bacchus from the South Downs, five simple botanicals, Hampshire bramleys, Essex gooseberries and Dulwich honey. It makes for a great martini and a top mid-priced gift for Father’s Day. £25/50cl.
