Our red sparkling wine went down a storm at LBWF last weekend. One Marylebone, a converted church, looked amazing. Our glass bar was amazing and showed off our wines to perfection. Simon, Ben and I, with the help of Wendy, served over 500 glasses. Fortunately, Rhubarb, the wedding and party caterers, supplied and washed the very elegant glasses. Many thanks to them.
Lots of visitors to our bar liked the medium dry red, cuvee “Chateau de Chaintres” 2007, a Saumur Champigny AOC wine from Chateau de Chaintres, a natural accompaniment to red meats and game. Also our lovely dry rosé from Domaine de Rocheville “Le Troubadour” 2009 a Cabernet de SaumurAOC wine, perfect with pork, poultry and cheeses. K
Have had a busy week preparing for our three wine tasting events. A 2 day event starting tomorrow at One Marylebone, London with Luella’s Boudoir Wedding Fair. I’ve lost count of the number of bottles Ben and Simon are taking. Between 400-500 guests are expected and we’ll be popping a lot of corks. We are serving a red sparkling “le Cerisier” from Chateau de Brossay, Anjou, Loire Valley. There is no refrigeration, nor any ice-making facilities at the venue and so my fridge is bursting with bubbly this evening – mmm!? K
