NEW WINE BLIND.
Winetopia this year brings you Wine Blind - the ultimate test of your tasting prowess!
Heading underground, each wine tasted will be concealed until the big reveal after a series of clues by our MCs - including Mermaid Mary, Angie Atkinson and Piers Haszard. You could be guessing the variety, region and vintage or something completely left field and different.
