A most enjoyable day and evening on 13 Oct. A very good selection of Greek wines from superb to eminently drinkable, some very pleasant surprises, such as the Papagiannakos Retsina (I never thought I’d be persuaded to drink retsina!), and very enjoyable evening entertainment with excellent musicians and some Greek dancing as well as very good food by The Greek Larder (the Ravani cake with wined pears was to die for). Most enjoyable and enlightening was our Wine Walk with Theodore Kyriakou, who introduced my friends and me to some real gems of Greek wines and gave us more than amazing value for money by being most informative and our wine advisor tirelessly for more than one hour. All four of us loved our London Greek Wine Festival experience! We hope it will become an annual feature at St. Pancras. Martha visited West Handyside Canopy on 13 Oct 2017

The music and wine event was good but the fact that people who had already paid a ticket for the afternoon but didn't have a ticket for the evening had to leave it was very unprofessional, At least they should have given the option to buy a general ticket (one that you could stay in the dance later on too). That was terrible, the security guy was checking the people inside the event later on to check what color of bracelet they had! How can you check everyone who was already in?!? Some of them were missed I have to say, some of them not! terrible.... And also another bad thing was that there was no water! A dancing event, everyone got so warm and sweat from dancing and there was no water!! Unbelievable and unacceptable.... visited West Handyside Canopy on 13 Oct 2017

Very enjoyable night, with great food (although a bit too pricy for the quantity), good wine and the live music and dancing was really fun! visited West Handyside Canopy on 13 Oct 2017

Disappointing that after paying £15 each for an entry fee purely to give us the opportunity to buy, we then had to pay a £10 deposit EACH for a glass. In most other wine festivals , a glass is included and in some , engraved with the name of that particular festival . The suppliers were great and very informative . Venue - fab . visited West Handyside Canopy on 13 Oct 2017
