Friday 25 October: Glenelly Estate
Glenelly Estate in Stellenbosch is an outstanding winery, founded by May-Eliane de Lencquesaing (former owner of Château Pichon-Lalande) in 2003. Export director, Nicolas Bureau (Mme de Lencquesaing’s grandson) will take us through a mouth-watering selection of the estate’s wines, including the Glass Collection Chardonnay, the Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonnay, the Glass Collection Shiraz and the stunning, flagship wine: Lady May.

Friday 8 November: Joseph Phelps Vineyards
Joseph Phelps is a name to conjure with in California and under the expert tutelage of export director, Robert Baxter, we will enjoy the winery’s Freestone Chardonnay, Napa Valley Sauvignon Blanc, Freestone Pinot Noir, Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and the remarkable, highly sought-after Bordeaux blend that is Joseph Phelps Insignia, the first ever so-called icon wine of California, whose first vintage was 1973.

Friday 15 November: Domaine Léon Beyer
The gregarious patron, Marc Beyer, a titan of Alsace winemaking, is coming to London specially to host this lunch, bringing with him a fine selection of the Beyer family’s world class single varietal bottlings including their celebrated Comtes d’Eguisheim cuvées and elegant Crémant d’Alsace. Marc will also talk us through his oenological philosophy and rich family history in the region dating back to 1580.

Friday 22 November: Château Grand-Puy Ducasse and Château Meyney
Château Grand-Puy Ducasse (5ème Grand Cru Classé Pauillac) and Château Meyney (St Estèphe) are two of the most familiar names of Bordeaux and we are indeed fortunate to welcome Anne La Neour director of the estates’ owners, CA Grands Crus, to our boardroom to host this lunch. Anne will talk us through the intricacies of Bordeaux as we enjoy several fine vintages from these much-loved and perennially great value estates.
