A heady mix of Ruinart, fine canapés and art is coming to The Violin Factory in Waterloo from 9-11 February. The Ruinart Lighthouse is the Champagne house’s new sensory experience, combining a specially created selection of Urban Caprice canapés, artworks commissioned by Ruinart and the chance to sample four of its wines, including Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002.
For the first time ever, artworks from Ruinart’s six recent artist collaborations (including Hervé Van Der Straeten, Ron Arad, Piet Hein Eek and Georgia Russell) will be shown together at its inaugural Lighthouse exhibition.
The experience will consist of a series of sensory rooms, allowing visitors to discover the history and origins of Ruinart Champagne and the Chardonnay grape. As well as rooms full of creative installations and artworks, there will be canapés created by the catering arm of Caprice Holdings and, of course, the all-important tasting: hosted by Ruinart cellar master Frédéric Panaïotis, the tasting includes samples of the Ruinart Blanc de Blancs, Ruinart Rosé NV, Dom Ruinart 2004 and Dom Ruinart Rosé 2002.
