Shaun's Wine Blog

Shaun Corrigan's monthly update on the wonderful world of wine at Rockliffe Hall.

This month we will host our first wine event on 5th November for Perrier-Jouët champagnes and Riedel glassware. This is an introduction to our 2016 wine event calendar of which there will be six next year. They will take place on the last Thursday of the month and I had invited some great winemakers and wine personalities to introduce an amazing collection of wines. Richard Allen, our executive chef will create a five course menu to be paired with the chosen wines.

 

Thursday 31st March - Tokaj-Hegyalja with Zoltán Demeter and Mark Savage. Zoltán produces what I consider the most incredible selection of dry and sweet wines from the region. Mark is a master of wine who specializes in small production, high quality imports from around the world.

 

Thursday 26th May - Argentina with Laurie Webster. Laurie runs Las Bodegas, the best importers of Argentinean wines in the UK.

 

Thursday 28th July - Waipara with Guy Porter. Guy owns Bellbird Spring Estate wines in New Zealand’s Waipara region. A great collection of hand crafted wines, all with exceptional individuality.

 

Thursday 29th September - Italy with Michael Palij MW. Michael is a master of wine and also owner of Winetraders UK, as well as being a full time wine educator. He is the UKs leading authority on Italian wines.

 

Thursday 27th October – Black Tie Gala Dinner with Mark Savage. This is our annual black tie event and Mark will choose 6 of his favourite wines.

 

Thursday 24th November - Germany with Iris Ellmann. Iris owns The Wine Barn, the UKs finest importer of high end German wines and she is also single handedly responsible for putting German wines firmly on the wine lists of many of the world best restaurants.

 

This month, Thomas Moore, our bar tender has entered the Patron Perfectionist bar competition with his ‘Pampelmousse Zingorita’ cocktail. The judges came recently and we do hope he makes it through to the finals soon.

 

We very much look forward to welcoming you to The Orangery restaurant soon for one of our wine events and, even sooner for dinner.
