Events: Wine-and-dine nights and a wedding fair at Huntingdon’s Old Bridge
Interested in wine? Love Indian food? Planning a wedding? There’s an event with your name on it at Huntingdon’s Old Bridge this spring
RATHFINNY WINE DINNER
Thursday, March 14, 7pm
It is exactly 40 years since the first English sparkling wine was launched into the market. In just that short time, English sparkling become recognised as world-class, and potentially the greatest rival to Champagne itself. No vineyard exemplifies this more than Rathfinny Estate in Sussex, whose rise has been little short of meteoric since its foundation in 2010.
At this special event, Rathfinny brand ambassador Richard James will explain how their “Champagne” soils, grapes, and production processes have all contributed to them being acknowledged today as one of the leading English producers. A series of canapes with the tasting will be followed by main course and pudding, specially put together by The Old Bridge Head Chef Pramod Jadhav.
Priced £79 per person, call The Old Bridge wine shop team on 01480 458410 to book.
