We held a fantastic tasting for one of our finance clients last week, they only wanted the very best, so we provided some great wines to suit the occasion. They were experienced wine imbibers and we had a very lively question and answer session. We also had a food and wine matching session and a competition to guess a mystery wine…….only 1 of 40 guests got the answer! We’ll keep it a secret, as we’ll drop it into the next tasting we do! If you have some important Directors to impress what about a premium wine tasting with dinner? Here is what was on offer:
Champagne Maison Autréau Grand Cru Vintage
Riesling Cuvée Frederic Emilie Domain Trimbach 2002
Batard Montrachet 2008 Fontaine Gagnard
Leuwin Art Series Chardonnay 2007
Aloxe Corton Louis Latour 1978
Barolo Borgogno Riserva 1979
Rubicon Estate Rubicon 2004 Napa Valley, USA
Chateau Lascombes 2eme Margaux 1990
Chateau d’Yquem 1998
Clients have been asking us for an ‘inbetween’ type of event – not a wine tasting or a full on cooking event, but something in the middle where guests can get involved and have fun, but at a very reasonable cost. So here is Cocktail and Canapés – a fun idea for summer events. Costs depend on numbers e.g. group of 30 would cost £70 plus VAT per person, which includes our EC4 venue as well. We can come to your offices if you’ve got suitable space, if you prefer. Reaction from clients who have chosen this have been very positive indeed. Contact us for more information.

Our first Champagne Tasting of the year was held on Saturday at Bacchanalia, our venue on the banks of the Thames. There were over 30 guests and they tasted some lovely varieties of champagne, together with a substantial buffet. By the end of the afternoon, all guests were very happy indeed. Chris Hambleton our Champagne expert was on top form, and was bombarded with questions throughout. He coped very well indeed.
The other dates for champagne tastings this year so far are:
19 Feb; 26 March; 16 April; 21 May; 25 June – but hurry as dates are getting full now. Usual price is £125, but if you email with the name of the 7th champagne on the list below – you’ll get £50 off the price!
Fantastic 3-day gastronomic weekends available in the South of France. Minimum group is 10, but ideal for Christmas or New Year breaks, or to reward hard working staff or entertain clients. To include wine tastings, gourmet meals and a cookery session where you learn to prepare classic dishes from the region. Absolutely lovely location. 595 euros per person, not including flights (Easy Jet to Toulouse). Typical example below – many dates available.
