French wines with Pierre: Thursday 25 May 2017
£39* per person
Leave your French wine perceptions at the door and let the charming Pierre steer you through the glories of Rhone, Languedoc and Corbieres wines perfectly matched to Nick’s special five course supper.
Join one of our regular wine nights for a food and wine tasting tour with friends and likeminded guests. Share a table with new friends or bring old ones for a sociable and interactive evening with our chefs and wine suppliers. Wander your way through five courses with matched wines that we taste and debate together. Our wine experts come armed with three wines that have been previously revealed to Nick. Nick curates a tasting menu to compliment the wines. All you have to do is consume it all!
Limited numbers! Book your place at the table: 01491 872829
A wine connoisseur will be present throughout the evening to introduce each of the wines, explain their grape composition and tell you about the wineries they’re sourced from. You’ll hear and taste why each wine works so well with certain ingredients, flavours, spices and dishes. And you’ll understand why the chosen wines for the evening are served in the order they are. You’ll leave, hopefully, with a little more wine knowledge than when you arrived and perhaps with new wines to enjoy at home or for a special occasion.
* We’ve asked the ever charming Pierre, from Enotria Winecellars, to lead the majority of our 2017 events. We’ve worked with Pierre for more than three years and followed him from his previous company to Enotria. He never fails to bring his flair and passion for wine to our events and clearly, he knows his stuff. He’s our most requested collaborator – our guests have fallen for him!
Pick Nick’s brains
Chef patron, Nick, will be on hand to answer your culinary queries, offer advice and suggestions for your own home kitchen creations. Pick his brains on what inspired him about the wines to create the evening’s menu. Understand his own passion for fine wine and matching wine with food. It might be Mary who directs the wine list, but Nick is known for his penchant for good plonk too!
