Tutored Wine Tasting & Supper

September 30, 2019

Our wine tasting and supper evenings are for anyone who enjoys wine and would like to know more about it or for those who simply want to spend an evening with friends trying a fantastic array of wines, complemented by a fine menu.

The tutored wine tasting evening will be hosted by Tim Hart and Dominique Baduel from Hambleton Hall.

This tasting will focus mostly on dry Riesling styles from around the world with one sweeter interloper from the Mosel to start the party! A few wines from the Hambleton cellar with a little bottle age demonstrate the remarkable ability of Riesling to improve with age.

The evening starts at 7pm in Hart’s Kitchen giving you the opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests.

Tickets £65 per person to include Tasting and Supper – seating will be on shared tables.
