Meet the Producer Wine Dinner - English Sparkling Wines

Back to Events

With producer Ulrich Hoffman, Hoffmann & Rathbone

Friday 17th May 2019 

Hoffmann & Rathbone is a boutique winery located in the picturesque village of Mountfield, East Sussex. Run by husband and wife Ulrich Hoffmann and Birgit Rathbone, their wine tells a story of love and passion for craft and artistry in winemaking. Ulrich’s experience and expertise allows him to push the boundaries to create very small quantities of ultra-premium, modern sparkling wine, using traditional methods, aged for long periods, with care and patience.

They conscientiously source and hand-pick only the ripest grapes grown in the beautiful South East English countryside, which are then gently pressed. England manifests terroir. The combination of absolute perfectionism, concentration on tiny volumes and commitment to producing wine beyond commercial time constraints, ensures only the very best quality for Hoffmann & Rathbone sparkling wine.

This special celebration dinner will take place in the 4AA Rosette Orangery restaurant hosted by head sommelier, Daniel Jonberger.

Guests will enjoy a welcome drink and a delicious four-course dinner by Executive Chef, Richard Allen. His dishes will be carefully matched to four English wines, including three beautiful sparkling wines from Hoffman & Rathbone, which guests will be personally guided through by Ulrich Hoffman himself.
