OUR WINTER WINE DINNER SERIES 2019
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 12th April Wines of Hungary
Like all wine-producing countries in Eastern Europe (and there are many), Hungary is still in the throes of restructuring its wine business in the post-communist era. wine was viewed as simply a commodity like grain or potatoes to be supplied, according to long-term economic plans, to Hungarians and particularly, Russians. The state monopoly handled all wine sales and distribution and, although much of the vineyard land remained in private hands, many vines were planted in unsuitable areas. Quantity was the priority. Quality was regarded as subversive.
Today, Hungary's vine-growers and wine-makers are trying to grapple with a completely new system. The Russian market has evaporated, the domestic market is embryonic, and export markets have never been so competitive. All things considered, Hungarian wine is doing well and making an impact.
