                                The following is a copy of an initial report to our members


The 6th Cheltenham Wine festival took place on Saturday 30 October 2021. It is with a feeling of some relief that I am able to say that, because the 5th Cheltenham Wine Festival never actually happened, cancellation being forced on us by COVID. Once again the event was housed at the Pittville Pump Room and consisted of two sessions, each with a maximum capacity of 240 tasters. Both sessions were sold out.

This year, on the day, we had 22 wine exhibitors displaying their wares and offering tastings and wines to purchase. My target had been 24 wine exhibitors but it has proved quite a difficult year for some of our regulars with several unable to take part for various reasons. We did manage to attract five first-time exhibitors which is a promising sign for future years. We actually had 23 wine exhibitors this year until one from France dropped out on the Tuesday before the event, feeling unable to expose her staff to the COVID risk in the UK.

In addition to the wine exhibitors we had our usual charcuterie stand, a new cheese supplier and a home-made cookie baker.

The day proved very successful. The tasters seemed happy as they left, their mood no doubt bouyed up by the excellent wines that they had sampled. We have had several complimentary emails from exhibitors, all saying that they would like to come back next year. One has expressed some uncertainty about next year as they are up for sale!

Many thanks also to the Wine Festival Committee, who made the whole thing happen, and to all those members and their spouses and partners who helped on the day. This support does not go unnoticed. To quote feedback from one of our exhibitors, “I have to say that the team of organisers and support staff at the event were first class, everyone was so helpful and proactive with coming round refilling water bottles. They really were excellent, please pass on our thanks to all involved”.

And so with the 2021 Cheltenham Wine Festival safely and successfully behind us, we look forward to the 7th Cheltenham Wine Festival, to be held at the Pittville Pump Room on Saturday 29 October 2022. Put the date in your diary!
