California vs Burgundy Wine Dinner – Friday 1st July £85 – Save £10 only £75 with your Gastro Card

With Jackson Family Wines and Bouchard Pere et Fils

A ‘Judgement of Paris’ 40th Anniversary Celebration

 In 1976 Steven Spurrier, a British Wine Merchant in Paris, carried out a blind tasting competition with a select group of Parisian wine experts. It was to be an amusing aside as top cuvees from Burgundy and Bordeaux were pitched against some ‘cooking wine’ from California.  What happened next was far from a joke.  A Californian wine came first in every category.  The tasting caused a huge scandal that paved the way for the rightful recognition and growth of the New World wines we enjoy today around the globe.

As a nod to this iconic tasting we’ll be joined by two fantastic wine producers.  Jackson Family Wines from California will be putting their wines to the test against the equally wonderful Bouchard Pere et Fils from Burgundy for a bit of fun in Birmingham.

Four courses, 8 wines and a little champagne to get us started. Surely we will all be winners on this unique evening of gastronomic delight!?

Just £85, inclusive of a four course dinner with canapés and eight blockbuster wines.
