South African Wine Tasting Supper – Fully Booked

January 23, 2020

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 and is inspired by recent acquisitions following a visit to South Africa earlier in the year.

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.

It is probably best to book a taxi home or we can organise that for you when you arrive. Alternatively, stay with us overnight in the hotel and wake-up at your leisure.

We are sure you will have an enjoyable evening, with good food, great wines and convivial company, and hopefully you will have learned something new!

Call our team on 0115 988 1900 to book your place and advise any dietary special requirements. Full payment is required to secure your reservation.

All tastings can be purchased as a Gift Voucher and would make an ideal gift for food and wine lovers.

We hold a number of tasting events throughout the year. Please keep coming back to this events page, or register for our online newsletter to keep up-to-date with upcoming events.
