The three biggest personalities in the wine world are heading to Manchester for the first weekend in July, hosting a summer tasting extravaganza at Manchester Town Hall.


Familiar to many from their appearances on TV and radio they are Oz Clarke (the one who got James May to move from beer to wine), Olly Smith (aka Jolly Olly – Radio 2’s wine guru) and Tim Atkin MW (wine expert on Saturday Kitchen) and together they are the Three Wine Men.

They are on a mission to get everyone in the country tasting and enjoying new wines, alongside delicious food. Their events bring together wine, beer and artisan food producers and retailers to prove just how much fun your taste buds can have in a day, given the right ingredients.

What better way to start the weekend than coming to taste straight after work on Friday evening or make a day of it on Saturday?

The tone of the event is driven by the attitude of the Three Wine Men, unpretentious, no-nonsense and fuelled by a genuine love of wine. Oz, Olly and Tim are completely hands-on throughout the events, encouraging visitors to try new wines, beers, drinks and food. Three Wine Men events are designed to be fun, engaging and interactive in order to help people expand their taste horizons.

It doesn’t matter if visitors are experts, enthusiasts or just enjoy the occasional slurp. When they arrive, they simply grab a glass and get tasting from the hundreds of wines exhibited at the show.

For those who want to learn more there are masterclasses where they can be guided through a range of elegant Australians, iconic Italian Chianti Classico and Prosecco or master the art of matching wine with cheese.
