Manchester’s finest independent wine merchants, Reserve Wines, are launching their summer wine fair at the wonderful Mackie Mayor. Held on the mezzanine level of the grade II listed Mackie Mayor, the former Smithfield Market, this promises to be a fantastic day for wine buffs and beginners alike.

A fantastic day for wine buffs and beginners alike

You can expect fifty handpicked wines, from their huge range of ’boutique’ wines from family owned-and-run wineries across the globe, although even the most dedicated imbiber might find it a stretch to try them all.

Expect to make a full day of it, thanks to the in-house food traders of Mackie Mayor – they’ll be doing exclusive food offers on the day for attendees.
