Champagne and Fine Wine Tasting

Champagne and Fine Wine Tasting

Our Projects Manager, Jamie Winspear, has helped build a strong friendship amongst like-minded business people in Harrogate by organising non-profit events to bring people together.

Last month, Jamie organised a ‘Champagne and Fine Wine Tasting’ evening at Rudding Park for 15 people.

The evening was a great success, everyone had a smashing time.

Matthew Mackeness of Rudding Park Hotel provided the Jupiter Suite, the amazing food (which complemented the champagne, red and white wine, dessert wine and Burgundy) and the cigar to end the evening!

Harrogate based Rudding Park Hotel have recently opened a Pop Up restaurant ‘Horto’ featuring until the end of September. For a fabulous 20% off the Tasting Menu, please see click here.

Jonathan Smailes, Director of Sales at Pol Roger Champagne, provided some fabulous drinks from the 2002 Winston Churchill champagne to the 25 year old single malt. Jonathan guided them through the evening giving information on the history of champagne making and how the champagnes are made today.

Jamie – ‘Pol Roger champagnes in my opinion are one of the best….’ – No surprises there then!!

Alfie Whattam supplied the entertainment and was the showstopper of the evening. Alfie was a finalist on Britain’s Got Talent. He is an amazing illusionist and magician, Alfie stunned everyone with his tricks, ensuring the evening ended spectacularly.

Alfie is starring in a Street Magic TV Show coming out very soon. If you’d like to see a sneak peak of the show, then have a look here for more info –

Jamie would like to thank everyone who attended the event and for Johnny, Matthew and Alfie for making it such a wonderful evening.
