Taste and buy wine from a worldwide range and support local charities at a Christmas Wine Festival on Saturday.

The Brackley Christmas Wine Festival takes place at Brackley Town Hall from noon to 6pm.

This is the sixth wine festival organised by Brackley Rotary Club.

The timing has moved from the former spring date to be nearer to Christmas, enabling wine lovers to stock up with tipples to their liking for the festive season.

Ten stallholders have booked to attend, all of whom are members of the Association of Small Direct Wine Merchants or local independent suppliers.

The festival gives the opportunity to taste new wines, guided by experts, where quality and flavour take precedence over brands and mass production.

Event organiser, Rotarian Trevor Davies, said: “Following the success of previous events, the festival provides a tasting opportunity for people to discover and buy new wines without the risk of the wine not being to their palate.”

“Proceeds from the entrance fee of £7 will be in support of Rotary charities.”
