Why we love it

Taste three award-winning South African wines from the Bouchard Finlayson wine estate, at Bloomsbury's beautiful Montague on the Gardens Hotel. As one of the only venues in London to stock Bouchard, the Montague presents a unique opportunity to sample wines such as the acclaimed Hannibal blend, rated 99/100 by the South African Wine Index. Enjoy two reds and one white, each paired with South African-themed canapés - meaty, BBQ and grilled national cuisine made using traditional 'bry' cooking methods, for an authentic South African experience.

What's Included?

  • Exclusive-to-Truly wine tasting flight for two people at Bloomsbury's beautiful Montague on the Gardens Hotel
  • Sample three award-winning Bouchard Finlayson wines each; two red and one white
  • Each wine will be paired with unique South African-themed canapés

Description

The celebrated Bouchard Finlayson estate produces some of South Africa's most distinguished wines. Described by Berry Brothers & Rudd as "without question one of South Africa's leading premium producers", Bouchard's wines are much sought-after, and not readily available in the UK. There are only a small collection of venues with them on offer.

The Montague on the Gardens Hotel is one of the Bouchard estate's sister properties, part of the Red Carnation Hotels group. In the seclusion of Bloomsbury, the hotel is a setting of serenity on the vibrant doorstep of Soho and Covent Garden. A multi-time winner of TripAdvisor's Travellers' Choice Award, this Georgian-style townhouse provides exemplary personal service, understated comfort, and - of course - a selection of Bouchard Finlayson's finest. The intimate Terrace Bar & Conservatories are an oasis from London's busy streets.

Seated in one of these beautiful spaces, sample three premium wines each from the estate. A brief discussion of the wines, two red and one white, from the hotel's sommelier will last approximately 20 minutes, after which guests are free to enjoy the wines at their own leisure. To round off the experience, each wine will be expertly matched with canapés inspired by the nation's cuisine, for an authentic South African experience.

Sample Wines:

  • Bouchard Finlayson Galpin Peak Pinot Noir
  • Bouchard Finlayson Hannibal blend (rated 99/100 by South African Wine Index)
  • Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer (named "Best New World White Wine" by Decanter Magazine)
