Volcanic Islands - Saturday 17th July at 7:30pm (3 Bottles to Share)


The price includes 3 x full bottles of wine and a selection of matching nibbles (see THE FOOD tab)tasting notes and access to our exclusive zoom tasting event with sommeliers George Bergier and Nick Fildes. 

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

Volcanic Islands - sounds rather specific, doesn't it? And you'd be correct, it is. But there is a reason. These islands produce some of the world's finest mineral heavy and lean wines that money can buy. It is down to the land in which the vines are planted with a healthy dose of truly world-class winemaking.

The chaps will be dropping their wine anchor on the Canary Isles to explore the wind-swept slopes of the Teidi Volcano. Then we sail east to the Aegean for call in at the producer of one of the world's truly great wines, Gaia and their Wild Ferment Assyrtiko, on the Island of Santorini. And we end up on the Mediterranean's largest island, Sicily, as we explore the generous but ruthless Mount Etna region.

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!

Cured meats come from Trealy Farm Artisan British Charcuterie. Using free-range small herd livestock and heritage breeds and combining techniques from across the globe to create delicious artisan charcuterie.

We will also sometimes provide you with nibbles and mezze style dishes produced right here in our own kitchens using our Best of British produce. For vegetarians we supply dishes such as homemade black pea hummus, mushroom pates and homemade breads.

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.
