The Museum of Brands, 111-117 Lancaster Road, London W11 1QT
Yes really! Come on a trip around France with our local wine merchants Jeroboams (shops in Holland Park, Notting Hill and Walton Street). This is a fantastic opportunity to taste a selection of wines and hear from one of the company’s expert sommeliers as we journey from one world famous vine growing area to another.
The journey happens in North Kensington in the Museum of Brands, so you will have an opportunity to look at some of the museum’s treasures when you are handed a glass of fizz on ‘boarding’.Our guide for the evening is Pippa Mistry-Norman, assistant manager at Jeroboams Notting Hill and a fully trained sommelier.
We will then be given a talk on the Bordeaux region, together with appropriate tastings, before moving right across France to Burgundy with more talk and tastings. To ensure that we don’t come out completely reeling, plates of cheese and charcuterie will also be on offer.Finally we will also have a small competition. Come along and join the fun!
Jeroboams are kindly giving us a discount, so we are able to keep down the costs in spite of all the fine wine and nibbles.
The easiest ways to get to 111-117 Lancaster Road with public transport is to take tube (Hammersmith & City line or Circle line) or bus (routes 52, 228 or 452) to Ladbroke Grove Station, walk south some 50 metres and then turn right into Lancaster Road and walk a further 115 metres. Total walking time 3-5 minutes.
