Reserve Wines are re-inventing the concept of mass wine tastings on 22nd June with their Wine & Food Festival, taking place at one of Manchester’s most exciting event spaces, Fairfield Social Club managed by local street food event moguls GRUB.
Inspired by the success of some of the most avant-garde beer events in Manchester and across the world, this event presents a completely unique opportunity to enjoy a vast range of different wines in a totally inclusive and engaging way without compromising on the fun factor of a good night out.
“It’s always been about making wine fun and accessible and this type of event totally fits in with what we are trying to demonstrate,” said Kate Goodman, founder of Reserve Wines. “There are too many preconceptions and traditionalism surrounding wine and we think Manchester is ready to see past these and join in the fun.”
On top of a 100+ strong wine line up, a couple of local gin outfits, Manchester Three Rivers and Faith & Sons, will be present alongside the English Whisky Co.
“Gin, and spirits as a category have obviously emerged as key attractions, for us as much as for our friends and customers and we cannot conceive running an event without showcasing some of the best examples out there. Luckily, we didn’t have to go too far to find them” said Nic Rezzouk, the event organiser.
For the food element of the evening, Reserve have called on three of the most popular local street food traders: Yakumama (Latin American), Little Orange Co (Sicilian arancini risotto balls) and ChouChoux (French patisserie).
A nominal £7 fee (+booking fee) will get you in, and a token system will be used to redeem drinks, just like in a beer festival. The food traders will charge separately.
