A Book and A Bottle

Great books deserve great wine. We wanted to create an event that brought two of our favourite pastimes together, so A Book and A Bottle was born. We match wine and novels to create a Novel Pairing.

Damian Barr the host, a wine expert from the brand partner and the author decide together what wine matches the book and why. All done live onstage the audience get to be involved in the lively discussion and debate, try the suggested wines and help the author choose the final pairing.

Our sold out, successful events have been delivered across the UK in independent venues and at festivals including Edinburgh and Cheltenham. We have previously featured fantastic authors including Jessie Burton, Lionel Shriver, Ian Rankin and Kate Mosse.

We have partnered with Corney & Barrow, Foyles and The British Library. Our podcasts recorded live from the event can be listened to on soundcloud and our social sites.
