Billed as 'the North East's biggest wine and gastronomic event'. Organisers say: "Following the success of the inaugural festival last October, we are pleased to announce that the festival in 2012 will be taking place on August 10th and 11th at Tynedale Park. We look forward to seeing the return of the many visitors from last year and hope you will bring along friends and colleagues who were not able to join us in 2011 so that they can experience this great North East event. Once again we will be enabling you to sample food from some of the North East's leading kitchens whilst tasting wines from around the world with expert guidance from leading wine merchants in our region. The festival will be held over Friday evening and all day Saturday and each evening will be rounded off with live music so that you can let your hair down and party! Prices have been maintained at 2011 levels and once again your ticket will provide you with entrance (on both days!), tokens for wine and food samples and a commemorative tasting glass to take home with you. Come and join us at Tynedale Park on August 10th to August 11th"
