Wine Tasting Dinner
TO BOOK PLEASE EMAIL:
The time seems right to think of wines from warmer climes, and where the sun shines brightly our beloved Grenache prospers! Whenever Trevor travels to the larger wine events he finds happy gatherings of 'Grenachistas', and that's generally where the best time is to be had. So, with those good times and sunshine in mind, what better focus for our next wine dinner?
Those of you who have been paying attention will know that we make our own wines at our winery in the Minervois, under the label Boulevard Napoleon (named after the street on which it sits). Bathed with the local sunshine we produce Grenache Gris and Grenache Noir, and back at home in London we keep a library of Grenache as a reference point. Over dinner, we will be opening up enlightening and interesting elements of this collection!
The whites will be an insight in to the lesser spotted Grenache Blanc and Grenache Gris, the reds a chance to explore the diverse range of flavours and styles that this wine can present within its own vernacular. Trevor will compare and contrast vintages, regions and styles, Fergus will feed you the accompanying delights.
Extra surprises will appear over the course of the evening, too... perhaps one of the very few remaining bottles of our own Grenache Gris, made in tiny batches and sold out almost immediately... and there will be some additional treats from the kitchen: we have ordered whole milk-fed lambs, and every bit must be used! Then finally, what is Delicious Pie?! Well, what more do you need to know?
