Women in Wine – Wednesday 1st August, 7.30pm

Have you ever thought about who makes your wine? From the harvest to bottle, each step is just as important, but whose are the faces behind this legendary tipple?

In an undeniably male dominated industry we are beginning to see a shift with more female winemakers at the helm. For this tasting, we’ll be shining the spotlight on some of our favourite standout creations. Expect a couple of old favourites and an abundance of new discoveries.

£25 per person inc. six wines, nibbles and knowledge.
Pop-in or call us on 0161 962 6263 to reserve your place.

Our Winter Wine Fair event at Sale Waterside was an incredibly successful evening. Here is a link to the tasting booklet and order guide – all of the wines and gifts are available to buy at Cork of the North.

We run regular ‘themed’ in-house wine tasting sessions at our Cork of the North bar in Sale. At each tasting session, which lasts around two hours, we will taste six or seven wines, with some expert commentary from one of our staff, and tasty nibbles to accompany the delicious wines. These events are always relaxed, casual and great fun, as well as being informative.

Tickets can be bought by popping into our shop at 13 Northenden Road, Sale M33 2DH, or by calling 0161 962 6263.

Our Wine Tasting tickets make great gifts – and we can post tickets out anywhere you like!
