Cornwall's Wine and Fine Food Fair

Cornwall's first and biggest wine and food fair of the year gets underway at St Mellion Golf and Country Club near Saltash on Tuesday, 21 February. Billed as a 'fashion week' preview for regional wine and food trends, the two-day event has become an essential diary date for the region's booming hospitality trade.

More than 300 wines from all over the world will be available for sampling in the wine hall, plus meats, cheeses, chocolates and lots more from some of Cornwall's top artisan food producers in the food hall.

At the event – interviews, filming and photography with:

David Hearnden of Castang Wine Shippers;
Angie Coombs of Taste of the West Cornwall;
Local food producers;
10 French wine producers here to talk directly to people about their wines from the Rhone, Muscadet, Loire, Bergerac and Burgundy regions;
Chefs, restaurateurs and caterers all looking for local suppliers and innovative products for this season's wine lists and menus;
Wine broadcaster and writer Stephen Barrett and Cornwall's only cheese monger Stephen Gunn – both at the event delivering master classes.
The fair runs from 12.00 noon to 9.00pm on Tuesday 21 February, and 10.30am to 8.00pm on Wednesday 22 February. Media attendance is welcome on both days.

The Objective One Programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly has invested in Cornwall Taste of the West through the European Agricultural Guidance and Guarantee Fund (EAGGF).

Anyone considering a new horticulture, food and land based industries project is advised to speak with Maria Ford, at Government Office South West - 01752 635015 - before commencing development as there are now only limited funds available due to the successful uptake of funding by the agricultural sector in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
