4th Winemakers’ Gala with Big Bottle Party and Winemakers’ Dinner on the 6th December 2018

On 6th December, right at the start of the new winter season, you can enjoy the first of many culinary highlights: Our Winemakers’ Gala with Big Bottle Party and Winemakers’ Dinner is taking place for the fourth time on 6th December 2018. A not-to-be-missed experience for all wine lovers! Together with five top winemakers amid a cosy, laid-back living-room ambience, we’ll enjoy a convivial evening and savour some truly superb wines. All five vintners will have their personal favourites with them in magnums, hence the name of the kick-off to the evening – ‘Big Bottle Party’ – held in the hotel foyer and at the Blue Bar.  This is followed by our Winemakers’ Dinner during which you can savour a mouth-watering menu prepared by our team of chefs tailored to accompany another five outstanding wines.
