Wine Lust 2022 will run from 12 August to 10 September this year, and features a whole host of dinners and other wine-related events.
Good news, gastrophiles! 1-Group’s signature annual food and wine festival, Wine Lust, is back.
Wine Lust 2022 features a calendar chockfull of celebratory wine-related events across 30 days, and looks to build on the momentum from last year’s edition now that COVID restrictions have effectively eased. This sixth edition of the annual wine extravaganza will see 1-Group’s multiple dining destinations – including iconic and heritage venues such as 1-Atico, Alkaff Mansion, as well as the recently-opened 1-Arden – host a series of wine tastings, progressive chef-driven wine dinners, and wine pop-ups that will excite seasoned oenophiles and new enthusiasts alike.
We scoured through their extensive spread of events to pick out those we think you should check out.
