Wine Dinners at Claridge's

Claridge's winemaker dinners

Claridge’s will be holding a series of wine dinners throughout 2009 in the decadent surrounds of its Reading Room. Bound to satisfy wine-connoisseurs and foodies alike, the list of wineries and winemakers is impressive, including Baron Philippe de Rothschild and Grant Burge.

The evenings will begin with aperitifs and an introduction to the wines by the visiting winemaker, followed by a five-course dinner specially created to accompany the wines selected for that evening.

The dinners will be priced at £170 per person, and the hotel is offering special rates for guest rooms and suites for those attending, which include Champagne and a full English breakfast.
