Hosted by double act head chef Christophe Marleix and head sommelier Ruben Desport at the hotel’s recently re-launched restaurant, The Grill at The Dorchester, a total of seven guests will take front row seats for a convivial wine and canapé journey covering six pairings from a different region or theme each month.
Designed to offer an alternative night out to sitting down for dinner, Ruben and Christophe will tailor their tips, stories and anecdotes to the varying levels of wine and food knowledge shared amongst guests.
