The Wine Festival will also host market stalls from foodie favourites, including; 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.
