Forty diners tucked into a sumptuous five-course dinner which was themed to accompany the six featured Bordeaux wines presented by Adrian Patterson of Tanners. Even the blind tasting was a smooth Bordeaux blend Australian red. At the end of the evening Adrian auctioned some fine wines for the Children in Need Appeal and the proceeds together with donations from other diners amounted to £600!
Wine dinners are a monthly event at Glewstone Court; held around the third Friday of every month these relaxed evenings are designed for lovers of wine and food, are great fun and next morning, if you can remember, you might think you have learned something of the magic of wine!
The next wine dinners will be held on Friday 18th January when Simon Clarke of Hay Wines in Ledbury will be presenting wines from Northern Italy and Friday 22nd February will feature wines from Concha Y Toro, a much admired wine brand with vineyards in Chile and Argentina.
