Continuing in our Influencer tasting series, we are delighted to partner with Ed Dallimore, owner, and creator of @59Vines.
Ed has been taking photography seriously since about 2008, inspired by a long summer in Italy. In 2010 he tasted a seven-year-old Hunter Valley Semillon that amazed him so much he moved to Sydney and got a job at the winery that made it – Mount Pleasant. The surge of England & Wales onto the high-quality end of the world of winemaking brought him home to England in 2020. Ed immersed himself in the domestic industry, tasting, meeting, and visiting as much as he could in order to photograph and write about it. Ed visited 150 producers between April and November 2021 and produced a book – The Vineyards of Britain – published in June ‘22 by Fairlight Books.
When you arrive, you’ll be welcomed with a glass of English rosé. Ed will be showcasing six wines from English vineyards including the likes of Nyetimber and Gusbourne. The tasting starts promptly at 7pm and will last approximately one-and-a-half hours. Due to the nibbles being communal, we are unable to cater for dietary requirements.
