Wine lovers are in for a treat this July with the Three Wine Men summer tasting event. Here in Manchester for the third year running, the event disposes of any stereotypes of snobbery surrounding wine tasting.
The Three Wine Men are the rather well-known Oz Clarke, who got James May to move from beer to wine; Olly Smith, otherwise known as Jolly Olly, the wine expert from Radio 2 and Tim Atkin MW, wine expert on Saturday Kitchen.
The Three Wine Men are currently touring the UK and together they are on a mission to get everyone across the country tasting and enjoying new wines alongside delicious foods. The events are designed to be fun, engaging and interactive and are fuelled by a genuine love of wine.
Their events bring together wine, beer and artisan food producers and retailers to prove just how much fun your taste buds can have in a day, given the right ingredients.
The threesome run a number of talks through the sessions but are also on hand to chat to visitors and guide them through some wine tasting choices.
For those who want to learn more there are masterclasses where they can be guided through a range of elegant Australians, iconic Italian Chianti Classico and Prosecco or master the art of matching wine with cheese.
Tickets are £25 each and masterclasses are £5 each. They can both be bought in advance from: www.seetickets.com/Tour/THREE-WINE-MEN
The three sessions are:
Friday, July 4 - 5.30 to 8.30pm
Saturday, July 5 - 11am to 3pm
Saturday, July 5 - 4pm to 7.30pm
