Gusbourne Sparkling Wine and Canapés

Wednesday 6th December

£35 per person or
£60 per person including a two course dinner in the California Bar

Since setting out to create English sparkling wine that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe, Gusbourne Winery has created an award winning selection with only perfection in their sights. Join The Vineyard as we showcase this elegant pour with complimenting canapés created by our talented Head Chef Robby Jenks.

Historically, rosés were seen as fun, and often not taken very seriously. Fast forward a few years and pink, blush or rosé wine – whatever your preferred name- is now seen as a serious industry and the quality has skyrocketed. This is thanks in part to historic Old World producers crafting some serious bottles, with the notoriety to raise them on to the big stage.

One thing has remained true throughout – these wines are ideal served chilled outside with, or without, food in the summer sun. Subtle and aromatic, or bolder and fruit-driven, their flavours can be rich and varied -this variety makes them the perfect partner to stand alongside blockbuster reds for summer entertaining.
