The O’Briens Wine Festival Is Back For 2023!

We’re delighted to announce that the hugely popular O’Briens Wine Festival is making a welcome return on the 26th and 27th of May 2023. Taking place in the bright and spacious surrounds of the RDS, this year’s Wine Festival will feature more than 280 wines from over 60 of the world's best winemakers. So whether you’re a devoted wine buff, a casual fan, or just want to try something new, it promises to be an unmissable event. And tickets are on sale now! 

There will be over 280 wines to explore

A World of Wine

“There are winemakers flying in from everywhere, including Australia, Argentina, Chile, the US, Germany, Spain, Italy and France,” says O'Briens Wine Director, Lynne Coyle, Master of Wine, “and this year we have a big contingent coming from Portugal. It’s the A-Z of the most important wine regions of the world.”

Rosé & Bubbles

The ever-popular Rosé tables are back this year too – a great way to kickstart the summer – and for the first time, some of the world’s top Champagne houses will be joining us at the festival. It’s an unmissable chance to try spectacular wines from top Champagne houses including Bollinger, Moët & Chandon, Piper-Heidsieck and Charles Heidsieck to name but a few. 

Many of the world's top wineries will be represented

Meet the Winemakers

There will be 20 new producers joining us for the first time this year and there will be even more chances to attend one of our excellent masterclasses across the weekend too. Try some new wines, chat to the winemakers behind your favourite bottles and pick up some expert info on the world of wines.
