The Wine School of Cheshire set to showcase English Wines Restaurant 1539 this Spring Bank Holiday

On Saturday 3 June, The Wine School of Cheshire comes to Restaurant 1539 to showcase English Wines in celebration of English Wine Week 2017.

“English Wine Week is a national campaign, designed to raise awareness of English wine across the country. There are a wide range of activities which take place across the country to celebrate English Wine Week, involving both retail and leisure outlets, and at the vineyards themselves. English Wine Week starts over Spring Bank Holiday, it marks the start of the tourist season, and the vineyards themselves are waking up to the new growing season – there is plenty to see and enjoy.”

This year, The Wine School of Cheshire is embracing Chester’s proximity to the Welsh border to include Welsh wines within their annual feature event for English Wine Week by hosting The Great British Grape Off at Restaurant 1539 at Chester’s historic racecourse on Saturday 3 June.

Richard Smith, founder of the wine school said, “I was thrilled to work with the English Wine Producers at RHS Tatton Park last summer where I met Colin and Charlotte Bennett of Gwinllan Conwy Vineyard where they featured their first release of wines from their own vineyard in North Wales. Afterwards, I thought was a fantastic idea it would be to introduce these wines to Cheshire and what better way than to include them in English Wine Week, enabling my guests to enjoy a complete taste of British wine in one enjoyable afternoon out.”

Enjoy the very best of British wine in combination with a four-course gourmet lunch by Restaurant 1539’s Executive Chef Daniel Speak, giving guests the opportunity to enjoy the very best of British wine and food pairing in a relaxed atmosphere. The Restaurant is the perfect setting offering the most unique backdrop in which to enjoy your afternoon.

The Wine School of Cheshire’s signature Saturday wine tasting afternoons in Chester always include Dining events are usually limited to just 14 guests with the feeling of an intimate dinner party with good friends.

The Great British Grape Off is £80 per person and tickets can be purchased on The Wine School of Cheshire’s Chester web page at cheshire.wine/chester
