Girlings Solicitors: Key Partner to the Canterbury Wine Festival 2023

Girlings was delighted to once again act as the Key Partner to the Canterbury Wine Festival. Members of the Girlings team showed their support for Kentish wines by attending the Festival preview evening on Friday 19th May at Westgate Hall, Canterbury.

Managing Partner Lesley Ruston was joined by Poppy Cooke, Tracy Furminger, Sophie Robins, David Redgate, Curtis Wray, Joshua Parton, Simon Stempien, and guests.

Kent’s multi-award-winning vineyards, including Balfour Winery, Biddenden Vineyards, Brenley Wine, Chartham Vineyard, Heppington Vineyard, Simpsons Wine Estate, Terlingham Vineyard, Wayfarer Wines, Woodchurch Wine, Woolton Farm Wine, Yotes Court Vineyard, and Wine Garden of England were in attendance.

Canterbury-based wine sellers and advocates Corkk also featured, with curated tastings led by Master of Wine Clive Barlow MW.

In addition to sampling some of the Kentish wines that are now rightly receiving international acclaim, the Girlings attendees enjoyed a rousing tribute to the British wine industry from author and broadcaster Oz Clarke (Pictured with the Girlings team and Westgate Hall's Clare Millett and Imogen Morizet, photo credit: Westgate Hall and Carlos Dominguez)

Girlings Solicitors, as a firm that has itself been rooted in Kent since 1881, is honoured to have the opportunity to support the thriving wine industry here in the Garden of England.

In the words of Girlings Solicitors’ Managing Partner Lesley Ruston: “Girlings is delighted to be a Key Partner of the third Canterbury Wine Festival. We recognise the significant contribution the English wine industry makes to the region. Its growing international profile is impressive, and it now sits alongside established and prominent vineyards across the globe.”

Many thanks to everyone who attended the Festival across the weekend, and congratulations to the exhibitors and wine producers in attendance for putting together such a wonderful event. Cheers!
