The North West Spring Wine Fest 2012 is celebration of exciting, exclusive and boutique wines brought to Manchester by independent merchants for one bank holiday weekend!

The dramatic setting of St. Peter’s – a stunning church tucked away in Ancoats – will provide the perfect arena for enjoying the fruits of the hand-picked retailers, and the best wine producers from around the globe.

This fiesta aims not only to showcase a first class bounty of fine wines but to also explore the relationship between Manchester and wine and what this much loved tipple means to the city’s dwellers. Walking tours of its historical location of Ancoats are set to take place throughout the day, and there’ll be explorations of the area’s ‘Little Italy’ heritage.

Food will definitely not be forgotten – a selection of independent cheese producers will be on hand to match cheese to bespoke wines, plus traditional Mancunian fare from local artisan suppliers.

All in all, a beautiful, boozy bank holiday is guaranteed!
