[ What's on this week ]

Each week we select a few highlights from the community
and cultural events taking place over the next seven
days. For a more comprehensive what's on guide check
out 'in SE1' - our monthly printed publication - see
http://www.inSE1.co.uk for details.


VINOPOLIS FOOD AND WINE EXTRAVAGANZA
Tuesday 19 to Thursday 21 October
Normal opening hours apply; Vinopolis, 1 Bank End
Map: http://quicklink.se1direct.co.uk/?id=742
The three-day event will mark five years of growth and
development for London's  wine-tasting visitor
attraction. 
A food court will occupy the Iberian area of the
Vinopolis tour, giving guests a chance to sample the
Latin spirit: tapas prepared using fresh ingredients
from Borough Market along with Vinopolis's selection of
Spanish wines and sherries. Sponsors for the event
include: Neal's Yard with samples of its world famous
cheeses. These will be dotted around the tour, to
illustrate which cheeses and wine complement each
other; Cellar Trends who are donating a delectably
mellow Faustino wine, Hatch Mansfield who are supplying
the flavoursome white Bordeaux, Louis Jadot; and the
Siam Winery will be on hand to present a selection of
its exotic wines from Thailand. The sights and sounds
of singers and dancers that are on hand to delight all
of Vinopolis's visitors will enhance all these taste
sensations. 
A wine tasting session at 3pm on the 19th hosted by
Susy Atkins will offer guests an entertaining guide to
the wines available for sampling and to demonstrate the
art of tasting like a professional.
