If you want to enjoy fine wine & food in Manchester city centre, your best venue is Albert Square Chop House. Located opposite the iconic Manchester Town Hall, Albert's has one of the best wine lists in the city.

Evuna on Deansgate and also in the Northern Quarter has been serving fine tapas and Spanish wines for more than 13 years. Jane Dowler not only runs this thriving operation, but is also involved in directly sourcing the wines from small family wineries. So as you are savouring tapas, you can match your Pescados a la sal with a dry Manzanilla Sherry, or the Rabo du Buey with a fine, mature Ribera del Duero Gran Reserva. More info

5) Reserve Wines, Altrincham Market House

If you want to escape the city centre, jump on the Metrolink tram to the end of the line in Altrincham.
