I'm plugging this because I think it will be a worthwhile event: it's rare to see consumer tastings of this depth and quality, and Chelsea Galleria is an ideal venue for wine tasting. Below is the press release from New Zealand Winegrowers, who are organizing the tasting. Jamie Goode

Last year, over 500 people enjoyed an evening of wine from some of New Zealand’s top wine producers. This summer, New Zealand Winegrowers are hosting the tasting again on Wednesday 18th June at Chelsea Galleria, London at 6pm-8.30pm.

Visitors to the Summer Fair will be able to enjoy wines from over 25 top New Zealand wineries and discover the wide range of varietals that New Zealand has to offer, be it our celebrated Sauvignon Blancs, stunning aromatics such as Riesling and Pinot Gris or our first class reds Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Pinot Noir.

There will be two masterclasses throughout the evening given by New Zealand Master of Wine, Peter McCombie on New Zealand Wine – Much more than Sauvignon Blanc and The Myriad Styles of New Zealand Chardonnay.

Tickets for the tasting are £15 each (or 11 for the price of 10) and available from New Zealand Winegrowers. For further information, please contact New Zealand Winegrowers, New Zealand House, 80 Haymarket, London SW1Y 4TE, tel: 0207 973 8079 or email
