Today, we are blessed with an abundance of good wine. True, there are still unacceptable quantities of industrial plonk but, by and large, most producers constantly strive, year on year, to improve their quality. Emerging from these perfectionists is a tiny, but growing, band of winemakers who push the boundaries in another direction – to produce something really different – what we call “The Unique and The Rare”.
Our six-course dinner presents seven such gems, including one wine from an epoch long gone; from a time before the dreaded Phylloxera arrived and completely changed the vineyards of Europe. A vineyard planted in the 1850s which somehow escaped this devastating disease and where the grapes are still trodden by foot in the time honoured manner. It produces a mere 4,000 bottles a year.
So, for a wine dinner with a real difference, come and join us, you will not be disappointed.
£155 per person including dinner, coffee and brandy menu and seven wines.
Wines include a bottle of Fie Gris, Claret – Clos Louie 2007 and Grenat Noble 2011.
