Following the huge success of this event in the Spring Harvest in May, we’ve teamed up with another six Sussex wine estates and a local distiller –including Albourne, Stopham, Ridgeview, Bluebell, Wiston, Bolney and Blackdown – and the incredibly talented chef Michael Bremner of 64 Degrees for another night celebrating the quality of the internationally acclaimed English wines to be found right here on our doorstep.
Hosted by Julia Trustam-Eve from English Wine Producers, Michael will be preparing a six course tasting menu on live on stage, followed by cheeses from La Cave à Fromage whilst each wine maker presents their wine and explains why it works with a particular dish.
£55 six course tasting menu matched with Sussex wines
