Dinners

If you’d like a bespoke wine dinner, formal or more casual, we can do these too. As we’re totally independent, you can pick and choose the exact wines you’d like (or leave that in our capable hands!) to ensure your dinner is a cut above the rest. Our wine dinners are perfect for client entertaining, or if you just want to do something a bit whacky when entertaining your friends at home or at a private kitchen.
