  • BATTLE OF THE BOTTLESMONDAY, 20 MAY

    Wine tasting with a twist and canapés
    Starts 7pm – Ends 9.30pm
    The Loft

     

    Tom Surgey brings his brilliant Battle Of The Bottles back to The Club for the first bout of 2019 and it's sure to be a knockout. A fun, tongue-in-cheek, "sort-of", competitive wine tasting event where you, the audience vote for the winner.


     Tom will be joined by Master Of Wine Sam Caporn, AKA The Mistress Of Wine. The pair will compete in a wine battle structured over three rounds. For each round they have picked their favourite wines from the Club's wine list and will take turns trying to persuade you, the voting audience, that theirs is the better wine. The power is in your hands.

     Paired canapés will be served alongside each round. This event is suitable for members with any level of wine knowledge.

     Sam Caporn MW has been in the wine trade for over twenty years, during which time she has travelled the world extensively, buying and blending wine for the UK trade. She is a wine consultant, competition judge, a quarter of The Wine Gang and hosts corporate wine tastings and B2C events.

     Members may remember Tom as a Head Waiter at The Club until 2014. He is now Director of Business Development at the respected English sparkling wine producer Ridgeview, as well as a presenter at Three Wine Men events alongside Oz Clarke, Tim Atkin and Olly Smith. Tom also hosts a monthly wine slot on BBC Sussex.


    This is a great opportunity for members and guests to taste and discover an interesting selection of wines from The Club's list. PLease note that this event takes place in the Loft with everyone seated at shared tables. 


    Tickets cost £55, which includes the wine tasting and generous canapé pairings.
