Birmingham Wine Weekend is back - and it’s running for a full week!

The popular festival is returning with more venues, days and wines after a two year break

Birmingham Wine Weekend is back - bigger and better than ever before.

After a two year break due to the pandemic, BWW organisers are making up for lost time by extending the popular event to run all week - from April 4 to 10.

As well as more days, there’s more venues, a new app - and, most importantly, more wines!

    The festival features exclusive tastings, events and offers and e-tickets are available now, costing £10.

    They give you access to the Birmingham Wine Weekend venues which will be serving two especially selected festival wines for just £5 per glass. You can also upgrade to a wine and canapé pairing for £7.

    In addition a selection of BWW venus will be offering premium wine flights, giving you the opportunity to take your wine discovery to new heights. The BWW experience also includes a curated line-up of special events, and dining options exclusively for festival-goers.

    BWW begins on Monday 4 April and will run through until the last venues close on Sunday 10 April. Wine Passes will be valid for the entire week, enabling attendees to dip in and out of the festival as they please or take advantage of the entire seven days.

    But what about the BWW app? What does that do?

    In a festival first, this year e-tickets will grant access to the brand-new BWW App, which is where each festival-goer will find their Wine Pass: a personalised digital wine passport for the week.

    The Wine Pass is the key to unlocking the festival.

    The BWW App also features tasting notes for the wines available; a journal for festival-goers to rate and comment on the wines they’ve tried; and a handy digital map of the venues taking part, making it easier than ever to plan and enjoy a grape adventure.

    What have BWW organisers said about the event in their own words?

    Commenting on the return of BWW, Alex Nicholson-Evans, the founder of the festival’s parent company Living For The Weekend, said:

    “I couldn’t be more excited about bringing Birmingham Wine Weekend back for 2022: we’ve been hard at work making sure the return of BWW is truly worth the wait.

    “The introduction of the BWW App means that festival-goers can enjoy all the things they already know and love about Birmingham Wine Weekend, but in a more personalised and innovative way.

    “Not only does the BWW App allow you to see the participating venues and access exclusive events; it also means you have a wine-expert in your pocket at all times, with the introduction of our digital tasting notes.

    “What’s more, we’re giving our festival-goers the opportunity to shape their own wine journey.

    “By popular demand and for the first time ever, attendees will be able to choose if they want to find out which wines are being served at which venue or if they prefer to be surprised.”

    “This year the line up features close to 30 hand-picked venues– the most in the festival’s history – giving both those who know a little about wine and those that know a lot the opportunity to discover the city one glass at a time, via Birmingham’s best venues.

    “The venue line-up is our best and biggest yet, it’s also our widest with fantastic venues in Edgbaston and Digbeth now joining the celebrations.

    “As ever BWW gives people a great excuse to visit their favourite bars and to discover new venues across the city,” concluded Alex.
