OUR WINTER WINE DINNER SERIES 2017/2018

I am mindful that our Winter Events need to be a little more challenging each year, to coax our many wonderful and loyal customers from hibernation. Thank you for your business.

Once again we have partnered with our old friends at Matthew Clark again this year from whom (as with Trevor Hughes) we have been buying wine since we started at the Buttery in Glasgow in 2002.  It would appear there is some demand for another Epicurean Dinner, therefore I will be hosting another at the end of the series.

Trevor Hughes will be returning, along with me to host our annual American evening.

It’s going to be another action packed Winter ….. can’t wait!                                                                                    

Friday 6th April  Wines of Argentina/Chile
These two countries have a wine industry that stretches back nearly 500 years. Grape cuttings were first brought to Chile, then Argentina by Spanish missionaries in order to produce wine for the celebration of Mass. The favorable climate, abundance of water from the melting glaciers of the Andes, and high altitude allowed the Patagonian wine industry to flourish over the centuries. The arrival of European immigrants during the 19th century brought new grape varieties and winemaking techniques. Chile has been exporting wines to Europe since the 1880s, while Argentina primarily focused on producing for the domestic market until quite recently. Iain MacPherson from Matthew Clark will be sinking his teeth into this evening.
