Halewood Wines & Spirits' Rioja brand main sponsors of Spanish fest

Published:  15 August, 2016

Rioja brand, Marques De Caceres has been announced as the main sponsor of this year's Manchester Spanish festival, Festejar.

Halewood Wines & Spirits is the sole UK agent for the label, one of the biggest selling Riojas worldwide.

The festival is returning for a third year with a line-up featuring Spanish music, culture, food and drinks.

Festejar will take over the city's Albert Square for four days, starting on September 1.

Halewood will be sampling its Marques de Caceres wines across the four days of the festival, including the Crianza, Rose, White and Reserva labels.

Andrew Turner, director of wine at Halewood, said: "Marques de Caceres is the wine that real Spaniards drink and Festejar promises to be four days of authentic Spanish culture like no other. We are delighted to be sponsoring the event."

Patrick Marmion, Festejar organiser, added: "Festejar keeps getting bigger and better and this year's events promise four days that will transport Manchester's residents direct to the heart of modern Spanish culture."

Festival organisers are still looking for additional authentic Spanish food and craft traders to join them at Albert Square for the duration of Festejar.
