Roll up for Wine Gang Christmas Fairs 2013

Roll up, roll up for The Wine Gang's three Christmas wine fairs in London, Bath and Edinburgh – even bigger and better than last year. There'll be hundreds of terrific wines to taste, everything from the great and glittering names to the affordable off-the-beaten track discoveries that everyone dreams of finding.
There are masterclasses to die for – I'm matching the fabulous Tokajis from Royal Tokaji to the equally fabulous Rococo chocolates in London and presenting thrillingly original wines from South West France in Edinburgh.
There are free Wine Walks throughout the fairs – tasting tours of exhibitors' tables led by one of the five Gang (Tom, Ant, David, Jane or me).
In London we've got a pop-up shop, so you can not only choose your Christmas wines and presents, you can walk away with them on the day, or place your orders for delivery later.
And the rollcall of exhibitors is better than ever. I can't begin to name them, so visit The Wine Gang's events website to get all the inside info and, even more important, to get your discounted tickets, using the code TWGWEB40. If you hurry, you might even snap up the last few at £12, but I'm not promising anything.
Crucial dates: Bath - 2 November; London - 9 November; Edinburgh - 30 November.
