Tutored Wine Tasting & Supper – 1 space remaining

May 20, 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 month’s theme will be Pinot Noir- the world beyond Burgundy

Since Burgundy prices have doubled over the past 3-4 years we have been working hard to assess the most interesting expressions of Pinot Noir from outside Burgundy.  In addition to the Cote Chalonnaise, quite close to Burgundy we have come up with some really interesting wines from Germany, South Africa, Australia and California As well as some favourites from New Zealand.

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.
