From Numanthia With Love – November 2014

Thursday 13 November 2014

For those who appreciate the good things in life, including fine wine, this previous wine-tasting dinner included some of the very best wines that Spain has to offer.

We created a stunning menu with the starter and main course complemented by Spanish wines — from vineyards in the northern regions of La Rioja and Castilla y Leon — that have impressed wine connoisseurs and writers around the world. This event was the perfect opportunity to enjoy these exquisite wines in a relaxed convivial environment.

The evening started with a Champagne reception, followed by amuse-bouches complemented with Champagne Ruinart Blanc de Blancs and the meal finished with a balloon of Hennessy Cognac.

The dinner was hosted by Bethan Wallace the European Brand Ambassador of LVMH, owners of the Numanthia, Moët & Chandon and Hennessy brands.

As anticipated, it has been another extremely popular evening.

Bon appétit
