Hangingditch in Manchester to hold sixth annual wine fair

Published:  11 November, 2013

Independent wine merchant, Hangingditch, is set to host its sixth annual wine fair in Manchester this Friday, November 19, from 6:30pm-9:30pm at the Manchester Cathedral, with live music, food and over 175 wines and spirits to taste.

There will be over 20 themed tables featuring wines from all over the world including, France, Spain, Italy, Australia, South Africa, Portugal and Argentina. Highlights include wine broadcaster and IWC panel chair, Joe Wadsack, presenting a masterclass entitled, Champagne Campaign, Simon Woods looking at regional wine from Australia and there will be a chance for customers to quiz winemaker, Gavin Monery, who will be showcasing for the first time 2012 Le Rêveur. Langtons Gin founder Nick Dymoke-Marr will give a tasting of his new Lake District-sourced gin and Alex Johnson from Eaux de Vie will conduct a separate spirits tasting.

Ben Stephenson, the founder and managing director of Hangingditch, said the inspiration behind the annual fair was simple: "Well, I like to have a good party.  But all joking aside, it's a real chance for consumers and the trade to come and work out what people will be serving for Christmas in a fun and relaxing environment."

£20 Voucher

Tickets are currently being sold for £25 per person. With the purchase of a ticket, attendees will get a £20 voucher that is good on a 12 bottle case purchase up to November 18. For more information click here, Hangingditch.

Hangingditch was first started by Stephenson in 2008. He has spent over 10 years in the wine industry starting with stints at shop manager for Oddbins and Harvey Nichols and an account manager at Pagendam Pratt Wine Cellars, Domaine Direct and Willoughby's Wine Warehouse.
