Monthly Tipple – August Wine Blog

Rockliffe Hall wine expert Shaun Corrigan welcomes you to the Orangery’s first monthly wine blog.

It’s a very exciting time for us in The Orangery as our wine list is going through a rather large transformation at the moment, with many old wines going and lots of new ones arriving.
 
Our wine list is now presented in an A-Z dictionary style designed to encourage interaction with our wine team. It may be confusing at first, but it gives lots of information and introduces many new varieties that many wine drinkers may not have tasted before. Our enthusiastic Sommelier Catalin, is always on hand to offer advice and to pair our dishes with his selection of ‘wine flights’. If you would prefer, we also offer ‘beer flights’, with a large selection of hand crafted beers from around the world.
 
Additionally Gregg, our Head Mixologist, has designed a new cocktail list with some assistance from our chefs. They have created a unique selection of vodka and rum based infusions, using seasonal ingredients and presented classical cocktails with an amazing ‘twist’.
 
Last but not least, we will be hosting a calendar of new wine events; our first wine dinner will be on Thursday 5th November with the champagne firm Perrier-Jouët. Their brand ambassador, Jonathan Simms and I will present five exceptional wines paired with a unique menu designed by our Executive Chef, Richard Allen.
 
That’s all for this month and we look forward to welcoming you to The Orangery very soon!
 
Shaun
