FOUR pubs will be serving six wines with a connection to the year 1979 during a 20-day wine festival.

In 1979 pub operator J D Wetherspoon was founded and the festival at their pubs is being held to commemorate its 30 year anniversary.

The wines being served in the pubs for the first time will be available from tomorrow until Wednesday, September 16.

The participating pubs are The Wrong 'Un in The Broadway and The Furze Wren in Market Place, both in Bexleyheath, as well as The New Cross Turnpike in Bellegrove Road, Welling and The Tailor's Chalk in High Street, Sidcup.

The new wines on offer include Goats do Roam Rosé 2009 Fairview (South Africa), the first of which were released in the vineyard in 1979 and Adelaide Hills Viognier 2006 7th Continent (Australian white) which planted its first vines in 1979.

Coronas 2006 Torres (Spanish red) will also be included. This is produced by Miguel Torres, who in 1979 stunned the wine world when one of his wines triumphed in a blind tasting against some of the world's most famous wines.

All of the wines will be sold at £2.20 for a 175ml glass, £2.89 for a 250ml glass and £7.69 for a bottle.
