Your guide for the evening

To truly appreciate a wine, you need to know its story. Our master sommeliers weave insightful tales into the journeys of our most exceptional wines.

Discover a new favourite

1,000 bottles. It’s an awe-inspiring sight. The wines in our vault come from far and wide, with varying vintages, producers and grapes. Today they line the walls surrounding our bespoke wine tasting table, where a carefully chosen light creates the optimal setting for studying colour and clarity.

An artisan’s touch

The bespoke handcrafted walnut wine tasting table draws inspiration from vineyards and wine barrels. A sustainably sourced walnut wood framework and floating Richlite top, made from recycled paper, adds a natural textured feel.


A wine tasting should be as individual as the wine itself. We’ve tailored our offers to make sure you gain the most from your experience, be that solely wines, with dinner or added to a private event at the Chef’s Table.
