Our Winemaker and Producer 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 Sally Evans, owner and winemaker at one of Bordeaux’s most exciting properties – Ch. George 7 in Fronsac. A sell-out every year since the inaugural vintage 2018, this will be a wonderful opportunity not only to taste and find out more about Bordeaux, but to find out what it takes to set up an award-winning winery in Bordeaux.
In 2015 Sally made the inspired decision to purchase a dilapidated property and empty winery with three hectares of 35-year-old Merlot vines, nestled in the heart of Saillans, Fronsac, the lesser-known right bank appellation neighbouring Pomerol and St. Emilion which lie to the East.
The Merlot flourishes on terroir of clay soil and the underlying limestone plateau. Experts guiding the estate are Anthony Appollot and Bruno Lacoste (who started his career with Michel Rolland) who also consult for several very well-known left and right bank Châteaux.
Please note, seating may be at communal tables, menus sometimes include sharing dishes. Tasting & talk from 6.30-7.30pm followed by supper. We aim to wrap up the evening by 9.30pm.
