There is a wind of change blowing through the continent of Europe. A warming climate, demographic changes, labour shortages and evolving tastes are all making themselves felt in the wine world. Two countries that are well placed to adapt to that changing world are Greece and Portugal where winemakers are looking both to their indigenous varieties and further afield for the next wave of wine.

Our final Wine Exchange masterclass sees us host a panel tasting with Dawn Davies MW and Steve Daniels from Hallgarten Wines and Raymond Reynolds from Raymond Reynolds on 26 June at our Covent Garden shop.

Daniels has been the driving force behind the availability and increased quality of Greek wines in the UK with a peerless insight into the country’s wines. Reynolds is an expert in the wines of Portugal, a country that is finally getting to step out of the shadows and show its full potential.

This will be a sit-down masterclass with a curated range of wines to taste.

The Whisky Exchange
This June, The Whisky Exchange is hosting a wine festival: The Wine Exchange. While whisky is in our name and is our first love, we are passionate about the full spectrum of drinks and want to celebrate the brilliant wines that we list. Dawn Davies, Master of Wine and The Whisky Exchange’s buying director, has curated a series of events to delve into the range, explore some of the most interesting topics in wine and open up the wide world of wine to as many people as we can. On top of that we will also be opening a collection of wines throughout the month in our central London stores for you to discover. We know that wine can be intimidating. There are grapes, countries, climates, appellations d’origine contrôlée, oak, vintages and so much more that seems to confuse and occlude rather than to explain and engage. The aim of this festival is that with every bottle we open, we open up the world of wine to more people. All of our events have education at their heart, and we believe that the best way to learn about wine, whisky or any other drink, is by tasting alongside the passionate people who make these brilliant bottles. As Davies herself says: “ You knew we were masters of whisky, but did you know we were masters of wine?”

    Excellent event! Thanks to a great host who was knowledgeable and entertaining. I liked the format of a small group and 1 hour session. It was enough time to discuss each wine, chat about the brand and have some fun. The location was also very good - cozy space downstairs at The Whiskey Exchange.
