Social enterprise, Open Kitchen, which operates a successful cafe and bar on the ground floor of the People’s History Museum, is thrilled to be hosting the first of a season of events inspired by their motto: sustainable - ethical - delicious.
On Thursday 23rd September, as part of the Manchester Food & Drink Festival 2021, Open Kitchen Cafe & Bar’s first evening event will be a sustainable wine tasting, sampling wines from the fabulous Bolney Wine Estate in Kent.
Open Kitchen works with a huge range of food businesses to stop beautiful, perfectly edible food from being wasted. They also purchase ingredients, working only with local, sustainable, and ethical suppliers. Wines from the UK are winning significant recognition internationally in recent years and purchasing locally produced wines is a great way to reduce the carbon miles of your food and drink.
This is a wonderful opportunity to sample a range of six wines from Bolney Estate, who have had sustainable land management at the heart of their operation since 1972. The evening will begin at 7pm with a glass of 'Bolney Bubbly' English fizz on arrival before Nathan from C&O Wines, who are hosting the event, takes guests through a selection of whites, rosés, and reds from the Bolney Estate.
Suitable snacks will be provided to match the flavour profiles of each of the wines, and guests will be guided through the individual characteristics of each one. A wider small plates menu will be available on the evening to purchase. If you find a wine you love on the night, bottles of the wines will also be available to purchase to take home. A full bar will be open all night for additional drinks.
Tickets cost £28 per person and can be found HERE
