The Baltic Warehouse will also be hosting a number of restaurant pop ups including Bitter Social and Maray, to further tickle your taste buds.
Festival organiser Jacob Hickey said, “The Liverpool wine scene has been on the rise for a couple of years, as has our independent bar scene. To marry these under one roof has been a dream of mine for a long time, and I’m excited to work alongside the businesses involved.
“As a local bar manager, I’m passionate about showing our guests where in our city they can drink their new favourite wines, as well as injecting even more fun into our local drinks scene.”
