Saturday 25 July
At Cottonworth Vineyard
Cottonworth, Near Stockbridge, Hampshire
As part of Hampshire Food Festival, we are proud to be collaborating with award-winning Cottonworth Vineyards and Hampshire Wine School, to present you with this amazing food & wine pairing extravaganza!
6:00pm: Vineyard Tour with Cecile of Hampshire Wine School, with an explanation of the life of the vine throughout the year (viticulture), and of the sparkling wine-making process (vinification). Tasting of the end product, the award-winning Cottonworth Sparkling Wine Brut;
7:30pm: 4-course alfresco dinner by Savage Kitchen
Guests will be dining right in the middle of the vines for an authentic Vineyard supper.
In case of rain or wind, we will bring the party indoors and serve dinner at the stunning Cottonworth’s tasting room.
Each dish will be created by Savage Kitchen using the finest local Hampshire ingredients and be expertly paired by Cecile of the Hampshire Wine School to enhance the flavours in your dish to perfection. You will also be given a short and fun explanation before each course on food & wine pairing rules and the exact reasons why those wines were chosen.
10.30pm: The evening will come to an end after hours of laughter, having made life-changing vinous discoveries and with a very happy palate!
A minibus service will also be on hand (for an small extra charge of only £7.50pp return) to drive you to the venue and back to Winchester train station and take the drinking/driving issue out of the equation, and let you enjoy the evening to the full!
