Upstairs at Trinity is one of those casual little boltholes for people in the know – the trick is to get in there before the rest of London shows up. And its fame is steadily spreading, thanks to its fantastic small plates and a series of themed wine dinners by executive chef Adam Byatt.
On Monday 16 May, guests will be discovering the wines of Europe’s islands. Hidden gems include Sardinian Vermentino and Cannonau, Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese and Grillo from Sicily, before ending in the Atlantic with wine from Madeira.
Pinot lovers should make a booking for 13 June, starting with Meunier from Champagne, Blanc from Alsace and finishing off with Noir.
Classics take top billing on 11 July, with a masterclass on Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Riesling; Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Pinot Noir will be representing for the reds.
Fancy a war of the rosés? On 19 September, find out why rosé is such a great food wine, with pairings featuring a Provence, a Pinot Noir-based Sancerre, a striking pink from Malaga and the French favourite, Tavel.
Tickets to these events cost £120, including wine, dinner and service. To book, call 020 3745 7227.
