MANCH­ESTER’S wine (and beer) scene has been a grow­ing phe­nom­e­non for a few years now.

This year I feel as if the bar really has been raised, cer­tainly in terms of spe­cial events.

Hang­ing Ditch, whose an­nual wine fair was held last week, has held some in­no­va­tive tast­ings such as its sherry and sushi match-up ear­lier this year.

Sa­lut runs wine cour­ses and fea­tures bot­tles to drool over in its three eno­matic ma­chines.

This week Sara Saunby has even given over a whole ma­chine to Roth­schild with a Chateau Lafite Roth­schild 1990 one of the wow fac­tor wines.

I’ve been to many tast­ings but this is a wine I’ve never seen in the flesh – only in the movies.
