Dinner with Gusbourne Estate Wines
Sat 25 Jun & Sat 23 Jul 2022
7 – 11.30pmManor Restaurant
Join us for an aperitif in the wine cellars before enjoying a five-course tasting dinner with Gusbourne estate.
Celebrate the wines of one of England’s most renowned and innovative winemakers with a fabulous five-course dinner at Waddesdon.
Situated in Appledore, Kent, Gusbourne first planted vines in 2004 with a vision to create the finest vintage wines using grapes exclusively from their own vineyards. Today they offer a diverse portfolio of exceptional wines. Along with a range of wonderful still wines – from a Chardonnay that rivals great white Burgundy to a complex and layered Pinot Noir – they also boast globally acclaimed sparkling wines, true pioneers in the English wine category.
Join us in the cellars for an aperitif of Waddesdon Sparkling wine by Gusbourne, followed by a delicious five-course dinner accompanied by a range of fabulous still and sparkling wines from the estate’s wonderful portfolio. Including their brilliant Gusbourne Guinevere, which we believe to be England’s’ finest still white wine, and the stunning Gusbourne Rose brut 2016.
