What's included

The Chester Grosvenor is a gem in the north of England and famous around the world, boasting five red stars which reflects it’s excellence throughout and Chef Simon Radley has held a coveted Michelin Star here for 28 consecutive years.

 

We’ll welcome you to The Gallery on the first, floor beneath the 28,000 crystal chandelier, with a glass of The Gusbourne Estate Brut Reserve before you join us in The Drawing Room for an evening of timeless luxury.

 

The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. In 2004, Andrew Weeber took over the estate with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English sparkling wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe.

 

The first vines were planted that year. In 2010 the debut vintages of Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2006 and Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs 2006 were released to critical acclaim. Gusbourne quickly earned a reputation as a producer of outstanding quality wines, with accolades from some of the industry’s most exacting critics.

 

Winemaker Charlie Holland honed his skills in Australia, Germany, New Zealand and the USA before taking the helm at Gusbourne. With numerous international awards to his name, Charlie has produced some of the most celebrated sparkling wines in the UK and beyond.

 

Their best-selling wine, Gusbourne Brut Reserve, is a combination of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier which spends a minimum of twenty eight months on lees and three months on cork before release.

 

We’ll introduce the first of our cheeses paired with your first glass of wine and you’ll enjoy the enhanced flavours that each pairing creates as well as learning a little more about the wines and wine region as well as each of the cheeses. Throughout the evening you will enjoy different cheese tastings matched with three different glasses of wine with our cheese selection chosen personally by Michelin Star Executive Chef Simon Radley

 

As always our wines will be sourced from the best local retailers and we will provide the winemakers’ tasting notes for you to take home.

A variety of cheese tastings will be served which will be paired with our wine selection throughout the evening.


Vegetarian and specialist dietary options are always available by prior arrangement.

Your wine school host

The evening will be hosted by our Founder, Richard Smith, who will share with you some of his twenty five years knowledge of all things wine as well as some anecdotes (but alas, no secrets) from his time as a butler. Richard trained at one of the world’s finest hotels and is proud to have advised several members of the British Royal Family and a number of international heads of state and celebrities. Richard has recently been featured in The Daily Mail and Cheshire Life magazine and he regularly writes for The Taster magazine and Chester.com.
