A Summer Champagne Evening

imgres 14-06-04

Tuesday July 23rd

 

 

Fought over for hundreds of years by Germans, French, English and even the Spanish, the Champagne region is one of the most well-known in France. Home to huge forests, lush meadows, rivers abundant with fish and, of course some of the most famous vineyards in the world, Champagne has a rich and varied history. Of course, it’s known mostly for its wine, but its food is on a par with some of the finest in France and this evening we will showcase some of the best traditional recipes. The wine, synonymous with celebration, is often outrageously expensive: we’ve teamed up with one of the smaller independent producers and are able to offer you this evening two champagnes of exceptional quality, unavailable in the UK and at a lower price than you’d pay for a “Grand Marque” in the shops. This is sure to be a heavily oversubscribed event, so book now to be sure of your place in the sun…

“I only drink champagne when I’m happy, and when I’m sad. Sometimes I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I am not hungry and drink it when I am. Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.” – Lily Bollinger
