[DEPOSIT] Dinner with Hans Schweitzer & wines from Argiano (Montalcino)
Enjoy a fabulous evening dining with our special 4-course menu paired with 6 lovely wines from Montalcino in Tuscany. £90 each for the evening, pay £50 deposit now to reserve spaces.
For this event we are partnering again with masterchef Hans Schweitzer of Cotto, Cambridge's very popular fine dining restaurant recently re-opened in the Gonville Hotel.
Hans has designed a special menu for us to enjoy in the Atrium restaurant and we have paired each dish with wines from Montalcino, chiefly from a producer called Argiano, considered among the finest producers of Brunello di Montalcino. (They also make a marvellous Super Tuscan which we will be having). Our Argiano wines are supplied by Noel Young Wines in Trumpington.
The evening will demonstrate the sort of food that pairs well with Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino as well as super tuscan blends. Hans has taken inspiration for his menu from the local cuisine and between courses your wine host will entertain you with snippets of information about the wines and the food pairing decisions.
We will compare two different wines with the starter and main course helping you better understand which works best for your personal preferences.
To reserve your spaces please book online paying £50 deposit per person. Nearer the time we will contact you to collect the £40 balance per place. Price includes all wines.
