A HAMPSHIRE sparkling wine festival is returning for its 10th year, in line with English Wine Week.

Vineyards of Hampshire’s sell-out event Fizz Fest will be at The Grange Vineyard and Winery, in Itchen Stoke near Alresford this summer, showcasing Hampshire's best still and sparkling wines.

Guests can taste more than 20 wines, with winemaker and vineyard owners on hand to showcase their selection. Masterclasses, vineyard and winery tours, street food and live music will also be on throughout the day.

For the first time, the event on Sunday, June 23 from midday to 4.30pm, coincides with English Wine Week which runs from June 15 to 23.

The Grange’s winery adjoins Burges Field Vineyard, home to 52,000 vines that produce the award-winning range of The Grange wines.  

Zam Baring, managing partner for The Grange wines, said: “Fizz Fest provides the perfect opportunity to taste all of the best wines to be found in Hampshire and we are very much looking forward to hosting this showcase event and we are all proud for it to have reached its 10th year.

"We opened our state-of-the-art winery here in 2022, a splendid design set into the undulating hills with the purpose of servicing our young vineyard and blending and producing our own wine. This year we are now able to do just that.”
