An atmosphere like no other in Cheshire awaits you with dishes prepared by Simon Radley and his team which offer a gastronomic delight, all matched with carefully selected fine wines from Burgundy’s Domaine Mischief and Mayhem. The Riedel Cellar was created for the hotel by renowned Austrian varietal crystal wine glass producer Riedel Glass.

Fine wine producer Domaine Mischief and Mayhem’s wines from Burgundy are created by Michael and Fiona Ragg. Based in Aloxe-Corton Michael and Fiona are cherished friends of The Wine School of Cheshire and we are proud to share their story and exceptional fine wines created from grapes grown in their selected vineyards around Burgundy with you. For this never to be repeated evening in Chester, Michael and Fiona will be joining us to share the Mischief and Mayhem story and present each wine together with Richard Smith of The Wine School of Cheshire. You’ll get to know the wines and their history and learn why we’ve chosen each wine to match each of four exquisite courses which we have carefully chosen together with Michelin Star Executive Chef by Simon Radley.

Once we are seated Michael and Fiona will share their winemaking story with you and we’ll introduce the first of their fine wines to match our first course. Most of these truly outstanding wines are only ever produced in small numbers, averaging just 850 bottles per vintage. As we progress to each course Michael or Fiona will introduce each wine and its history and we’ll have more than sufficient time for questions during and after dinner.
