Richard Kelley MW, aka ‘The Liberator’ Wine Dinner

Wed 22 May 24,  7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

RICHARD KELLY MW, aka ‘The Liberator’

DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND, WE HAVE ADDED AN ADDITIONAL DATE TO THIS EVENT – now booking for both Wednesday 22nd May, and Thursday 23rd May!


Richard was with us in 2017, 2020 and again in 2022, telling us about his ‘Liberator’ project – in which he visits top South African wineries and liberates various vinous orphans for his UK wine importing business, selling them as a series of never-to-be-repeated ‘Episodes’. They are a very diverse selection but share a strong sense of individuality and authenticity.

On those occasions we tasted from Episodes 1-36, and now we have the chance to sample the 12 or so wines released since then.

We will all learn a lot about the quirky reality of making and buying wine.
