McGuigan City Vineyard

Stand aside Vienna. Take a back-seat Paris; grand old London town is about to join the elite ranks of cities boasting their own vineyards.

Sadly though it will be just a temporary planting.

The McGuigan City Vineyard will grace the centre of Liverpool Street and is open to the public, for free, over just 3 days in July (9th - 11th). As the name suggests it is a unique marketing event to launch two new wine ranges from the Australian McGuigan vineyard.

Visitors to the vineyard will be encouraged to walk amongst the 50 year old vines, visit the cellar door and taste through a selection of new wines under the guidance of the McGuigan winemakers. The new ranges being the £6.99 McGuigan Classic range (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz and Merlot varietals) and McGuigan Discover at £7.99 each (Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, Langhorne Creek Shiraz Viognier, Victorian Pinot Grigio, Limestone Coast Cabernet Rosé and South Eastern Australia Moscato).

The McGuigan City Vineyard website should be live on Wednesday. The image is an artists impression; I don't think he has got the vines looking old enough...

Andrew - thats great, they really put on some wacky stuff at Liverpool Street station (i used to work on that block).

NYC has a few wineries, but some of them are stretching the definition of 'winery', however, there's an Upper East Side townhouse with a vine on it which the owner makes into wine for personal consumption - i think thats the only vineyard in Manhattan.

Might just have to check that out.
