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.
