• Served with a variety of delicious seasonal tapas dishes
• £65 per person
Podere Ruggeri Corsini was founded in 1995 thanks to a passion for the countryside and a love for great wines.
Nicola Argamante, along with Loredana Addari, decided they’d had enough of their jobs in the city, so they packed it all in, studied winemaking and bought a tiny vineyard in Monforte d’Alba.
They upgraded the traditional estate into an eco-friendly haven by adopting lighter bottles, handpicking, solar panels and natural wastewater purification, and by massively reducing the use of chemical treatments and sulphur.
These wines & small plates will be all about celebrating Autumn. Chef Tomas will be creating a shared tapas menu to be paired with each of the wines.
The food will make you want to cuddle up around the table with Nicola, who will be discussing what's in your glass, how winemaking can be more sustainable & unload stories of what he put into each bottle.
