Jack and Charlie Stein Wine Dinners
Join us for a series of evenings with Jack and Charlie Stein as they share their passion for food and wine. All will feature a five-course menu created by Jack with matched wines from Charlie and expect plenty of tales and anecdotes of their time in the industry.
On Wednesday 29th November join Charlie at Rick Stein, Barnes for an extra special wine dinner hosted by Julien Trimbach. £125pp.
Charlie says to expect: A spectacular en famille evening of seafood and the world’s best white wines, hosted by Julien Trimbach the 13th generation of this illustrious wine making dynasty. I went out to the winery last year and tried their top wine ‘Clos Stn Hune’ and it profoundly changed my view of what white wine can be. Moving and mind blowing.

Pinot Gris Reserve Personnelle, Alsace, France 2013
Fuller in body Pinot Gris with a touch of Alsace smoke the perfect wine to get things kicked off.
Scallop, baked celeriac and apple puree
Riesling Reserve, Alsace, France, 2014
From a selection of the best ‘fully ripe grapes’ this is textbook Alsace Riesling.

Riesling Frederic Emile, Alsace France 2008
Only produced in exceptional vintages from 40 year old vines, this 2008 is showing lemongrass, pineapple and blossom. It’s developing wonderfully.
