Spoil yourself this Saturday 12 May and join us for a luxurious Pink + Gold Champagne Breakfast! While many Champagnes are made from a blend of the three grape varieties you’ll be experiencing five exceptional examples made purely from the region’s two top grapes: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Plus a blind tasting game at the end!
Champagnes made from 100% Chardonnay, known as Blanc de Blancs, are arguably the most elegant and premium of all Champagnes. Many regard this style as superior to others which is why Blanc de Blancs constitute some of the most expensive Champagnes in the world. Come taste the prestigious Comtes de Champagne made by the Taittinger Champagne house who was the first to put Blanc de Blancs on the wine map. Their Blanc de Blancs became so popular that other Champagne houses started to scramble to create their own. Renowned for its complexity and longevity, you will be enchanted by the 2006 Comtes!
Not all Rosé Champagnes are made the same. While most are made by blending white and red wine, a small fraction of Rosé Champagnes are made using a more demanding technique of direct skin contact. This method requires the best quality grapes that are harvested at optimum ripeness. When done correctly this will yield a more robust, generous tasting Rosé with its own identity, texture and flavours. This is the real rosé Champagne. Taste two great examples of this premium style made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes produced from the Grand Cru and Premier Cru regions of Champagne!
Treat yourself and join us for a cheeky Champagne breakfast. From grower producers to grandes marques, taste some of the most intriguing and luxurious wines Champagne has to offer.

"I have now been to 2 of your wonderful wine dinners – ‘Noir’ and ‘You say Wine, I say Vino’. They were fabulous nights.
Not only are you great hosts but Attila is a great MC and wine expert. Your evenings provide a no-nonsense story behind every wine so we are truly learning something and appreciating the true craft of wine making. I love the line that “This wine will change your life…..” because it is also about understanding the wine maker and the passion behind the wine that makes every wine unique. You are discerning in your selections and I appreciate the effort which you go to in trying to procure the rare wine vintages you provide. I have enjoyed every wine you have selected so far.
Thank you for your fabulous wine evenings. I will absolutely go to more and highly recommend this to anyone who wants a thoroughly interesting and enjoyable evening." - Sarah
