  • Sharpham Wine Tasting

    On Sunday 15th April starting at 12.00pm we will be holding a FREE Sharpham Wine tasting! At the forefront of vine growing and wine making in the UK, Sharpham is widely recognised as producing some of England's most outstanding wines. They have been producing wine for nearly twenty five years. There wines are stylish and offer intense fruit flavours and aromas, which are made from carefully selected grape varieties grown on there own sheltered slopes overlooking the River Dart, and occasionally from other carefully selected vineyards across England. Traditional and new world techniques are employed resulting in a range of distinctive and carefully balanced wines. Their spectacular awards tally includes Regional, National and International medals. We have 9 of their wines to try! This is a FREE wine tasting BUT priority will be given to customers who have booked a table in our highly acclaimed restaurant. Seems only fair!

We have both the double IWC (Gold and Trophy) winning Classic Cuvee and the Silver medal winning Rose. Located in the heart of the Test Valley in Hampshire, Cottonworth is home to the Liddell family who have been farming there for four generations. Over the last 10 years they have carefully selected 30 acres of prime vineyard sites for the production of Sparkling wine using Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The south facing slopes, chalk soil and temperate microclimate ensure the best conditions for growing grapes of exceptional quality. This is a FREE wine tasting BUT priority will be given to customers who have booked a table in our highly acclaimed restaurant. Seems only fair!
