Broaden your wine knowledge—and deepen your experience.

Every great meal deserves to be paired with an exceptional wine. What better way to enjoy such an experience than in the company of the winemaker? Meet the people who craft the bottles we select for these gourmet evenings. The winemakers will share with you their insights into each wine, their winery and wine style. Convivial, personal and always enlightening, these dinners are not to be missed.

Let our sommeliers share with you their ideas on how to create a unique food-and-wine experience. Pairing each course of a gourmet meal with a delicious glass or two—all on a theme—we showcase a breadth of wines selected, ‘designing’ the evening’s fare in close collaboration with the chef to bring out the flavours of the food and stimulate your senses.
