The evening, beginning with a sparkling wine and canapes reception, will be hosted by Laurent Chaniac, our wine expert, who will guide diners through the wine journey, explaining how the history, location and techniques of each vineyard affect the finished flavours.

Wine from: Sicily
An ancient land cultivating wine for over 1000 years – that is what Marabino brings to us in this spectacular wine dinner. They are known for their quality driven product and their no compromise approach to wine making. Their location witnesses warmer weather, however, at sea level, they are able to create wines that are incredibly fresh. Marabino’s vineyards are driven with organic biodynamic farming, and it makes wines only from its own grapes: Moscato di Noto, Chardonnay and Nero d’Avola for red and rosé wines. We are happy to bring to the club, these high quality wines that are made without using synthetic chemicals either in the vineyard or in the cellar, and that are a great expression of the territory where they are born.
