1855 Dinner, Friday 29th May 2020


Join us for an evening celebrating Bordeaux’s famous 1855 classification of the wines of the Médoc. Over the evening you’ll learn more about the region as you enjoy a meal designed by our Head Chef to complement each of the bottles. The evening will start with Champagne, before moving onto a dry white Bordeaux – a wine style that was not included in the original classification. Following this, you’ll explore the reds of the region, the final flight of which will include an exceptional and mature First Growth – a 1995 Château Haut-Brion. All five Left Bank communes will be represented at this evening: St Estèphe, Pauillac, St Julien, Margaux and Pessac-Léognan. The grand finale will be a taste of the world’s most famous sweet wine, Château d’Yquem. Hosted by Rebecca Lamont, Head of Wine school.

Unfortunately, we have postponed all events at our St James’s premises until the start of July. We are constantly reassessing the situation and considering the feasibility of events after this date. In the meantime, we are offering virtual tastings online. We’ll arrange delivery of wines, glasses and a corkscrew to your guests ahead of a guided tasting with one of our expert hosts. For more information, please contact us.

Whether a lavish six-course banquet in our Sussex Cellar or a more intimate affair in the Long Room, we host a range of dinners focusing on wine regions, styles or producers. After a drinks reception and introduction from your host, you will sit down to enjoy a selection of remarkable wines matched with equally impressive food.

Our Head Chef Stewart Turner will design a menu to complement the wines you taste, while between each delicious course your expert host will guide you through the wines in front of you, giving you the opportunity to discuss their styles and ask questions.
