PEOPLE travelled from across the region to discover new wines in Brackley last weekend, and helped to raise around £900 for local and international charitable projects.

The third Brackley Wine Festival was held at Brackley Town Hall on Saturday, April 28, and was opened by Mayor Theo Hayward.

Nine wine merchants attended the festival including members of the Association of Small Direct Wine Merchants and independent suppliers.

Event organiser, Rotarian Trevor Davies, said: “We were busy throughout the day. It was pleasing that both merchants and visitors were prepared to travel great distances to be with us. Building on the success of last year’s event the festival provided another tasting opportunity for wine lovers to discover and buy new wines without the risk of the wine not being to their palate.”

Proceeds will go towards Brackley MIND project and other Rotary charities, including the Friends of Mithulini charitable project to bring clean water to a Kenyan village.

The Rotary Club are hoping to spend £2,500 equipping the MIND in Brackley consulting room.

The festival was sponsored by Direct Legal & Collections.
