About the Event

The tasting will include a full 3-course menu catering for all options including the obligatory Turkey, as a regular, I can happily confirm the food is amazing.

And the wine? So as always at this gig, I’ll be going large! Expect an aperitif from one of the better grower Champagnes such as Chartogne-Taillet or Bérèche, before sliding in to Condrieu from Vernay, Riesling from Haag or JJ Prüm, and Chardonnay from the most coastal vineyard in Northern California. Reds will include Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah (Côte-Rôtie anybody?) before moving to fortifieds. Those of you that follow me on Instagram are probably aware that I’m having a love affair with Calvados currently, so expect a warming post-prandial to finish...

Everything is included and the price per head is £100. It goes without saying that a fast response is needed to secure places at the table, I look forward to hearing from you.
