WINEMAKER DINNER – Richard Kelley MW, aka ‘The Liberator’

Thu 23 June 22,  7:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Richard Kelley MW, aka ‘The Liberator’

Thursday 23rd June 2022, 7pm


Richard was with us in 2017 and 2020 telling us about his ‘Liberator’ project – in which he visits top South African wineries and ‘liberates’ a few barrels (or vats) of wine 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 Episodes 1-23, 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.  Nibbles with the tasting will be followed by a supper of corn-fed chicken with summer mushrooms and asparagus; raspberry pavlova; coffee and chocolates.

£79 per person.

To book ring the wine shop, 01480 458410

We will sit on tables of 10, so you will not be distanced from others on the table.

£30 discount on any bedroom booked on this evening (book by telephone).

Please let us know of any dietary issues when booking. Payment in full is required at time of booking and tickets are not refundable.
