Fizz Festival logoAbout The Fizz Festival

Cracking Wine was set up by Janet Harrison in 2015. It runs fun and informal wine tasting events around the North West.

The company organised the UK’s first Fizz Festival at Altrincham Town Hall in November 2015 which was a sell-out event. It was a fantastic mix of specialist retailers, producers and importers of Champagne and sparkling wines from all over the world. An English Sparkling wine: Camel Valley Rosé won the Fizz Festival People’s Choice Award in 2015.

In 2016, three awards were created. Best Champagne went to Champagne Thienot, Best Sparkling Wine UK to Hush Heath and Best Sparkling Wine Rest of World to trail blazing importers Red Squirrel Wine with a fantastic Canadian fizz.
The concept has expanded over the Pennines with a Fizz Festival in Harrogate on 4th November 2017 at the Majestic Hotel.

Following the success of the Festivals, there is a Fizz Club membership scheme in place with many discounts and offers from local retailers as well as tasting events and producer visits at venues across South Manchester and Cheshire. Details can be found here
