Our Winemaker Tastings & Suppers are an opportunity to spend time with some of the world’s most exciting winemakers, experiencing the wines with their expert guidance.  You’ll be amazed at how much a winemaker’s personality can be expressed through their wines, and by the passion they bring to making them.

We’re delighted to welcome winemaker Patricio Gouguenheim from The Gouguenheim Winery in Mendoza for an evening of delicious wine and food.  

Born in Argentina to French parents, Patricio Gouguenheim’s love for wine started at the age of 7 when he was given a little bit of wine (mixed with sparkling water!) with every meal. No doubt this was a catalyst for him entering the world of wine later on in life. 

He went on to purchase a very old winery located in the Uco Valley, with a lot of small tanks ideal for the production of high-quality wines, and that was the start of his venture in this wonderful, crazy business! Since it’s beginning, the winery has become one of the best performing/top quality wineries in Argentina.

The Winery is located at an altitude of more that 3600 feet (one of the highest in Mendoza). As well as using melted water from The Andes, carried by irrigation channels, through the alluvial soils, the temperature difference between day and night is 16 º. All these factors help with the ripening and concentration of the grapes and ensure the wines are of consistently high quality, year after year.

After an aperitif of sparkling Malbec rosé (which received 91 points from Decanter Magazine), Patricio will talk us through the history of the Winery and winemaking in Mendoza.  We’ll then taste through a further 5 wines, before having a 3-course supper with a wine paired with each course and Patricio on hand to answer any questions that you may have.

Please note, seating may be at communal tables, menus sometimes include sharing dishes.  Tasting & talk from 6.30-7.45pm followed by supper. We aim to wrap up the evening by 9.30pm.
