Vivat Bacchus in Farringdon is adding a series of five-course dinners to its rota of weekly wine-tasting events.
On Thursday 15 March, the Morgenster wine estate in Stellenbosch will showcase its luscious reds (all Bordeaux grapes) alongside hearty beef dishes from Hambleton Farms, followed by a cheese course
from the restaurant’s cheese room. Tickets cost £59.
On 12 April, it’s the turn of Napa Valley winery Frog’s Leap to take diners through a selection of its wine styles, from robust Zinfandels and Petite Sirahs to refreshing Sauvignon Blancs and
fruity Chardonnays. Each wine will be matched with a different course during the dinner. The menu will be confirmed at a later date; tickets cost £59.
Then, on 22 October, diners can sample well-aged reds, white, and sparkling rosés from French winery Mas de Daumas Gassac, based in the picturesque Languedoc – including the estate’s well-regarded
Cabernet blend. A representative from the winery will talk diners through the styles. Menu and ticket price TBC.
To book a place at the wine dinners, email Lenka or call 020 7353 2648.
The weekly Monday wine tastings will continue at Vivat Bacchus as usual: Monday 19 March sees Tim Wildman MW talk enthusiasts through the wines of Mas de Daumas Gassac, including the 1995 red
(tickets cost £15). Then, on Monday 26 March, the restaurant will celebrate the advent of spring with a cheese-and-wine event (tickets cost £20).
