Food and wine fair to be held near Harrogate

A food and wine fair is set to be held near Harrogate next weekend.

The Dundesforde Vineyard in Upper Dunsforth, between York and Harrogate, will host the event on Saturday 20th April from 12pm to 6pm.

The event is free to attend and will see handpicked local artisan food businesses showcasing their wonderful products, alongside the vineyard’s own award-winning wine.

The family-friendly event will give visitors the chance to browse various stalls and to sample food and wine on offer. 

Dunesforde’s Head of Wine Development, Peter Townsend, will also be hosting free short talks throughout the afternoon, where visitors will learn about different aspects of the vineyard and sample the wine.

Peter said: 

“We are really looking forward to our first Food & Wine Fair. 

“Our wines pair excellently with a wide range of foods and it will be fantastic to bring them together with the very best in local artisan food. For anyone who likes food and wine, it’s an unmissable afternoon.”

There will also be a cheese and wine talk at 2pm presented by Stephen Flemming from George and Joseph Cheesemongers in Chapel Allerton.
