Try something new this January and join us on Friday 24th January, at 6.30pm for a special wine tasting event with Chinese wine producer Chateau Changyu Moser.
In celebration of Chinese New Year we have invited Lenz Moser from Chateau Changyu Moser XV to host the tasting in our wine cellar.
Chateau Changyu Moser lies just west of Beijing in the province of Ningxia, in China’s most renowned wine-growing region. The winery has its roots in the Changyu company, founded in 1892 when Chinese diplomat Zhang Bishi imported more than 500,000 vines from the US and Europe, paving the way for Chinese wine production.
Four wines will be tasting on the evening, accompanied with nibbles.
The evening is priced at £30.
All ticket holders will receive a 10% discount when purchasing any wine in the wine shop afterwards, and 20% off the bill (A La Carte only) when dining in the restaurant afterwards, with no corkage fee on any of the wines tasted from the event.
More information on Chateau Changyu Moser XV
In 2013, 15th generation Austrian winemaker Lenz Moser became involved with this historic winery, and launched Chateau Changyu Moser XV. Since then, the estate has gone full steam ahead into the international market.
Lenz’s focus on vineyard management, blending and ageing has taken the quality of these wines to the next level, offering a shining example of Cabernet Sauvignon from Ningxia. Every stage of wine production at Changyu Moser takes place at the chateau, from pressing and fermentation, to maturation. The site even has its own museum, showcasing Chinese winemaking history.
While largely Bordeaux in style, Ningxia is developing its own unique sense of terroir. For Lenz, this terroir comes through as “a unique kind of Chinese spice” that you don’t find anywhere else. It’s a labour of love, too. While warm and sunny in summer, Ningxia can regularly plummet to -25°C in the winter, meaning expert vine care is needed to avert danger in this extreme terroir.
