  • 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

We’re back! Cambridge Wine Fair 2023 is on Sunday 21st May.

Every year Cambridge Wine Fair brings leading local wine retailers together in one room, each with new and exciting wines for you to sample and try. There is no other wine-tasting event like this!

Armed with a tasting glass, you approach the staffed tables where you can learn about the wines displayed there and ask any questions. Try as many wines as you like – all included in the entrance fee.

Personal spittoons are available for those who wish to use them (recommended). This keeps you mentally alert so you can enjoy finding new favourites from among more than 60 wines open (but feel free to decide which ones you swallow).

Make new discoveries, and ask lots of questions – it’s always fun! This is your chance to get up to speed with what’s new and exciting from local wine retailers. It’s a great opportunity to try before you buy and make a shortlist of your discoveries.
