It is designed to be shared between at least two people.

Get those wine glad rags dusted off…..

Yes, we are going big for this one – and why not, it is Christmas Eve after all. We’ve covered many areas and topics over the last 18 months but curiously we haven’t touched base in Avignon yet for a prolonged slurp of one of the world’s finest and most prestigious wines.

And it just so happens that this is arguably George’s favourite region (depends what mood he’s in!) so it only seems fitting that we prepare for the most wonderful day of the year with 2 bottles of wonderful wine.

We’ve left the keys to the Chop House Citroen 2CV in the cupboard because we fully intend on drinking these wines and who’d blame us when we are trying a Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc and a Rouge. We are salivating at the thought.

The Wines:


Domaine de la Solitude, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Rhone Valley, France, 2019

Domaine de la Solitude, Chateauneuf-du-Pape, "Cuvee Barberini", Rhone Valley, France, 2006

At the Chop Houses we are blessed with the expertise of Manchester's Top Sommelier Mr George Bergier and his protégé Mr Nick Fildes. As well as the city's best wine list. As recognised by our unprecedented 4 Wine Spectator Awards and The Guardian.

It seems a shame to keep that talent and quality locked away.

Our virtual tastings give you the chance to sample beautiful, award-winning & rare wines, guided by George & Nick and their industry leading palates. The experience is intimate, fun and unique. You get the chance to engage with some incredible produce and some incredible talent.

This is not just some wine & some food.

Each wine is a truly beautiful example. From some of the world's most esteemed producers and regions. Variety is the spice of life, and this range of wines embodies this.

Your order will be delivered a day before the event. 

Make sure you refrigerate your whites, leave your reds in a cool room (18/19 degrees is ideal) and take the food out of the fridge at least an hour before the event.

We will provide you with a selection of nibbles and artisan British foods to accompany your wine. This will change seasonally and according to what our amazing producers recommend (as they are often small batch products).

Our cheeses are supplied by the one and only Crafty Cheese Man, a British cheese industry champion and internationally renowned judge and purveyor. What Crafty doesn't know about British Cheese isn't worth knowing!.

Your selection of Vegetarian or Carnivorous is to let us know if we should not include meat products. Please also alert us to any allergies you may have in the comments box on your cart.

PLEASE NOTE: This food is not intended as an entire meal. It is a lovely accompaniment to the real stars of the show, which are the three wines we will be tasting.
