Wine Tasting

We began the evening with an artisan champagne, Abelé 1757, perfectly paired with gourmet smoked salmon, both available for purchase in the store. Next was Augustus Primer Rosat 2022, intensely coloured young rose that went a treat with a canape of crispy rice with tomato and partridge egg.
