Explore the climatic, physical and human influences that create the differences between French wines and their New World counterparts. Your host Demetri will guide you through five different pairings during this dinner that will help bring these ideas to life. During this evening, you’ll compare and contrast wines from famous French regions, such as Champagne, Burgundy and Bordeaux, with New World wines from the likes of South Africa, Argentina and New Zealand. Hosted by Rebecca Lamont, Head of Wine school

Adhering to government guidelines and social distancing, we’re offering a range of courses, tastings and experiences in our historic cellars. We’re also offering virtual events which will be available for you to join from home.

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.
