Wine tasting dinners with wine writer Helen Savage

The Magnificent Douro
22nd February 2019

The Douro (Duero) unites some of the greatest wine regions in Portugal and Spain. Helen will introduce complex, aromatic dry whites and fabulous, full-bodied reds from both sides of the border and will round things off with a delicious glass or two of port.

Roast rump of locally sourced lamb, dauphinoise potatoes, French beans, olives.
Selection of cheese and biscuits.

£45 per person

The Mighty Rhone
22nd March 2019

The Rhone is home to some of the world’s finest grape varieties (Syrah and Viognier perhaps the best-known) and fabulous rich, silky reds in which Grenache bosses the blend; while the sweet wines from the south are sheer bliss. Come and taste Helen’s carefully-chosen selection of some of the best.

Hot smoked salmon parfait, lemon, spiced caramel, toasted rye bread.
Slow cooked beef brisket, black pepper mash, crushed peas, truffle jus.
Almond and pear tart, clotted cream ice cream, cherry compote.
