Wine fans, rejoice – because the beloved Manchester Wine and Fizz Festival is returning, and we can’t wait to make our way through glass after glass, before leaving wobbly-kneed and as content as a kid who’s just consumed a whole lot of biscuits at Nan’s house.
Forming part of the Manchester Food & Drink Festival, the boozy two-dayer will take place at the newly-reopened New Century in the NOMA district, with some of the region’s finest and most exciting independent wine retailers on hand providing the goods.
Taking place on Friday 7th October and Saturday 8th October, the MFDF Wine and Fizz Festival is the perfect event for wine lovers to continue exploring the delectable beverage, as well as learn more about the drink in general, and even taste new ones. Whether it’s a full-bodied red you love, or a light and crisp white wine – there’ll be tons on offer to get sipping on, as well as tutored tastings, specialist masterclasses and plenty of insight from some of the wine retailers across Greater Manchester.
Participating retailers confirmed include Le Social Wine, Italy Abroad, That Wine Cellar, Prestwich’s Grape to Grain as well as UKiYO Republic showcasing their wonderful range of Japanese Sake. Plus, you’ll also find Cork of the North based in Heaton Moor and Sale, West Didsbury’s Sip Wine Bar, Northern Quarter’s Ad-Hoc, Central Wines which has a focus on Polish wines and Suppher which helps to support women’s charities and women in hospitality.
Providing the perfect atmosphere to enjoy a glass of wine in, the festival promises a live music throughout each session, as well as host market stalls from Ancoats Coffee, Mello.Haus, Trafford Horticulture, MFDF Award-winner Dormouse Chocolates and Caroline Dowsett.
Some of the wine retailers will be serving up specially matched small plates, and attendees are also encouraged to refuel before or after the event at the incredible New Century Kitchen just downstairs. Find out more and book tickets here.
