The Fizz Festival Cheshire returns for its fourth year, on 17th and 18th November, at a fabulous new venue: The Courthouse in Knutsford. This iconic landmark provides a fantastic backdrop for our celebration of all things sparkling. Our regulars will know that we focus on independent producers and suppliers of every type of sparkling wine from around the world. We love to work with passionate, hard-working winemakers who create top quality, interesting and hard to find fizz and offer you the opportunity to try before you buy.
We have producers flying in from Alsace, Italy and the Champagne region of course as well as local suppliers who are bringing a fantastic selection from Australia, Germany, Spain and pretty much any country which produces sparkling wines. What a treat you have in store! We are also very excited to welcome three award-winning English sparkling wine producers this year.
Back by popular demand, we have a small number of suppliers under the 'out of the ordinary' category! They offer extraordinary sparkling wines, complimentary fruit based liqueurs and artisan spirits which make perfect partners with fizz. We have created a new award especially for these suppliers and details about the awards are shown below.
This is the only UK wine fair dedicated to Champagne and sparkling wine which is not a token-based drinking event. We search far and wide to bring exclusive producers to Cheshire so you can try something new, as well as being able to buy the wines at fantastic discounts. The ticket price is fixed and includes a FREE sample of everything on offer. It is amazing value for the amount and quality of wines available and you will taste premium sparkling wines as well as exclusive vintages. A great time to stock up on your Christmas fizz.
For a modest £5 fee, we will deliver your purchases within a 7 mile radius - just visit the delivery desk with your wines and we will bring them to your door.
We have nibbles available to purchase to keep you on the straight and narrow as well as free crackers and water available on each of the tables. There are a limited amount of seating areas, however, we are next to The Courthouse hotel and restaurant. If you wish to make a day of it, we are negotiating special offers, should you want to book lunch or dinner (or even treat yourself to an overnight stay). More information about these deals will be available soon.
See you at The Fizz Festival!
