Late-may events: Celebrating your inner-connoisseur


CPH gourmet & wine festival

May 30, 12:00-14:30 and 15:30-18:00; Bülowsvejshallen, Bülowsvej 34B, Frederiksberg; 230kr; lidtmere.dk

You have a few hours to let your inner connoisseur taste up to 300 samples of wine, beer, coffee, bread, cheese, meat, chocolate and more.

If you manage to expand your palate and find something particularly pleasing, you’ll be able to buy it at the festival.

Every participant gets to vote on the audience awards for best food item, best red wine and best white wine.

If you vote you are in the running for three bottles of wine. It’s a hedonist’s wet dream.
