Announcing the celebrated Cornwall Wine and Food Fair to be held on 11th and 12th March 2008 at China Fleet Country Club, Saltash

China Fleet Country Club is proud to announce that the 15th Cornwall Wine and Food Fair, organised by Castang Wine Shippers, will be held within the Club's extensive new conferencing centre on the 11th and 12th March. Experience some of the finest wines and local foods at the region's premier event which showcases a first rate selection of the hospitality industry's very best food and drink producers and suppliers.

Castang Wine Shippers is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable independents in the UK and sources a comprehensive selection of wines from around the world, the 2008 fair will host an exciting collection of 350 wines together with 25 locally produced food and drink producers. 2008 will also see the introduction of many new and exciting wines including champagnes, ports and madeira and a number of growers and winemakers will be on hand to assist in the wine tasting.

The fair is the largest event of its kind in the South West of England and has built an enviable reputation attracting food and wine lovers from all across the region and last year's event saw over 3000 visitors attend.

An exciting addition to the fair this year is the introduction of cooking demonstrations, given by renowned local chefs who will be on hand to provide hints and tips on sourcing ingredients and cooking with style.

 "We are delighted to be working with Castang Wine Shippers again following the success of last year's event and look forward to giving visitors a chance to source really excellent affordable wines from around the world,"  said Karl Taylor, managing director of China Fleet.

Castang Wine Shippers are offering an exceptional opportunity to win a free three day mini-break in Bergerac for two lucky people. A 'lucky draw' number will be allocated with each case of Bergerac wines purchased.

China Fleet Country Club offers outstanding conferencing, leisure and sporting facilities situated in 180 acres of stunning countryside overlooking the River Tamar. With unlimited free parking and easy access from Cornwall and Plymouth the club is a premier venue for larger events such as the Cornwall Wine and Food Fair.

Note: The fair is also hugely popular with individual wine and food enthusiasts and is FREE OF CHARGE, BUT BY INVITATION ONLY. The event will be fully signposted from both sides of Plymouth. Tickets for the fair are available on request from Castang Wine Shippers.
