Great wine and fine dining come together for an evening of delights with the wines specially chosen and introduced by wine writer Helen Savage.
Rioja has long made some of Spain’s greatest wines. Now it’s trying hard to raise its game still further as Helen will explain with the help of a range of wonderful wines -rich reds, complex, dry whites and even some top notch fizz – all partnered by mouth-watering food.
Game terrine, toasted sourdough, spiced chutney
Crayfish cocktail, piquant sauce, lemon
Slow cooked featherblade of beef, wild mushrooms, thyme, smoked bacon
Glazed lemon tart, lemon posset, berry coulis
The world’s biggest quality wine region not only produces some of the finest red wines on the planet, but a fabulous array of lesser-known but equally wonderful dry and sweet white wines. Helen, who knows Bordeaux intimately, will select some of her favourite treasures to beguile you.
Home cured gravadlax, capers, sweet mustard emulsion
Wild mushroom and Madeira veloute, truffle oil
Roast breast of corn fed chicken, pancetta, fondant potato, bordelaise jus
