London Wine Week Offers
London Wine Week is the capital’s largest self-guided wine tasting and those smart enough to be wearing a wristband can enjoy £5 flights – a trio of delicious wines – or specially created food pairings all week long in participating venues, with the fantastic hospitality scene of Devonshire Square being right at the heart of the action.
Head to Hix for a flight of Tonnix Portuguese wines, Devonshire Terrace for a summer flight of crisp Sauvignon Blanc, Italian bubbles and Provence rosé, or Cinnamon Kitchen for a trio of citrus whites.
If you fancy a snack – visit Enoteca De Luca a glass of Lambrusco and a plate of prosciutto e Bonconcino melone for £8, or take your date to the English Wine & Spirits Company for two glasses of sparkling wine with a food platter for just £20 with your wristband.
If after work cocktails are your thing – Old Bengal Bar have created a refreshing wine cocktail, The Spring Fizz.
So, from 18-24 May you can expect to eat well, bag some bargains and generally feel like the cat that’s got the cream when you flash your wristband in any of the partnering venues (both in Devonshire Square and beyond!).

Visit the Nyetimber Hub
The Nyetimber Hub in Devonshire Square, found on the first floor of the historic Bengal Warehouse, will be the focal point of the week. Here, with the finest English sparkling wine as host, festival goers will be able to collect their wristbands, speak with members of the LWW team to plan their week and relax in the luxury pop-up bar. To start your week with the gentle pop and fizz of celebration, Nyetimber are offering a free sample of their stunning English sparkling wine to all wristband wearers.
As English sparkling wines blossom onto the world stage this is an exciting time to learn about such a spectacular British product, from the southern vineyards to the delicate flavours which are rivalling the very best Champagnes. The Nyetimber team will be running daily masterclasses to walk wristband wearers through their range alongside expert tasting techniques and tips. Exclusively for Devonshire Square residents there will be lunch time tastings running on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday – discounted from £15 to £10 so it couldn’t be easier to get involved.

For one week only, Devonshire Square will be host to some incredible pop-ups for you to enjoy.
The Wines of Portugal Discovery Bar will be popping up in the Western Courtyard promising to bring a little bit of the sunny Med to our home. With your wristband you can choose from four specially created £5 flights, each with a theme to help you get to know your way around the styles of Portuguese wine, with each then available by the glass once you’ve picked your favourite.
Over on the lawn, bask in the evening sun on a picnic rug with a glass of cold wine in hand and hamper of goodies to enjoy at The Wine Garden, a cosy picnic in the heart of London with blankets provided if it gets a bit nippy!
