"Book a session with their master sommelier and find out why your sauvignon blanc is best eaten with goats cheese, why a manchego is rounded out by a tempranillo and a riesling cuts through a creamy camembert.

The long table setting is surrounded by glass door wine fridges and Riedel glassware. When you start the session with a glass of Ruinart champagne you know you’re in for a great afternoon."
