Enjoy a magical dinner at Waddesdon with one of Italy’s most celebrated winemakers, Frescobaldi

Join us in the wine cellars at Waddesdon for a glass of Frescobaldi sparkling wine then indulge in a sumptuous five-course dinner in the Manor Restaurant, with carefully selected wines to accompany each course. All hosted by the hugely talented and charismatic Peter Ferguson, global ambassador for Frescobaldi wines.

Dating back 700 years, Marchesi Frescobaldi have always produced wines of the highest quality. Through the centuries, clients have included celebrated Renaissance artists, the Papal Courts and even the court of King Henry VIII. Today, they are one of the most celebrated Italian winemaking dynasties and the family own 11 estates in Italy, distributing their wines to 65 countries across the world.

Don’t miss the chance to enjoy this special evening at Waddesdon, filled with fine wine, delicious food and great company.
