Winemaker tasting / supper with Richard Kelley MW, a.k.a. ‘The Liberator’ – Part 1

Mon 5 October 20,  7:00 pm

Three years ago Richard gave a tasting for us on his ‘Liberator’ project – for which he visits top South African wineries and ‘liberates’ a few barrels (or vats) of wine for himself, selling them as a series of never-to-be-repeated ‘episodes’. They are very diverse (covering all styles and various areas throughout S.A.), but share a strong sense of individuality and authenticity.

Last time we tried his first 10 wines, now he returns FOR TWO NIGHTS to show us ‘Episodes’ 11-20 on the Monday and 21-30 on the Tuesday.

As before, we will all learn a lot about the complex, often quirky reality of making and buying wine.  Canapés with the tasting will be followed by a 2 course supper of: Monday – free-range chicken with wild mushrooms; autumn berry pavlova; Tuesday – venison curry (mild!) with basmati rice; pear and almond tart with organic Jersey cream.

 £59 per person. To book ring the wine shop on  01480 458410.

Please let us know of any dietary issues when booking. Payment in full is required at time of booking and tickets are not refundable – unless we have to cancel because of Covid-related reasons.

We can of course only take bookings of groups of 6 or less. There are limited tables of 2 available.

£30 discount on normal b&b rates, if booked with wine events
