London’s hottest restaurants

- Bar Boulud - Oxo Tower Restaurant - Sea Containers - Jose Pizarro restaurants - The Cinnamon Club - Aqua Nueva - Treves & Hyde - Zoilo - Obica - Galvin restaurants

Wines, spirits and other drinks
Drinks-wise, the Tasting boasts a range of styles to choose from, from established classics such as Champagne and Rioja to trendier sips, including Californian Pinot Noir and top-class Prosecco.
There will be zesty and refreshing white wines, such as cool-climate sparklers and Loire Sauvignon Blanc, as well as powerful, complex reds such as Barolo and top producer Sicilian Nero d’Avola that demand slow and careful sipping. There are luxurious, top-flight sweet wines and fun party wines, ports and sensual Pinot Noirs, wines redolent of the tang of the sea, and wines from the highest vineyards in the world. This year, you’ll even find China’s answer to Bordeaux present.
As always, there will be no shortage of beers, ciders and spirits as well. There will also be rums and whiskies to warm your stomach, with a fascinating range of gins to boot.

It’s offering attendees the chance to experience Munich and all its delights, with two business-class return flights to Munich from London, plus two nights (including breakfast) at the Maritim Hotel Munich.
