Sommelier & Wine Pairing
If you want to further your private fine dining experience, within our team there are several fantastic sommeliers, all with extensive knowledge of old and new world wines. They understand the importance of selecting the perfect wine to match dishes and how a wine can complement and lift a dish to another level and vice versa. It adds another exciting aspect to your private dinner party. You can trust your palate is safe in their hands.
The sommelier will study the menu with Dean and together they will select the perfect wines, either Old or New World to enhance each dish. On the evening the sommelier will arrive prior to your dinner party to set up the correct glassware, decant where appropriate the wines to aerate them and release their wonderful aromas and flavours. They will explain to you and your guests the notes on your nose and the flavours on your palate. They will also illustrate why that particular wine will support your outstanding course.
