Wine tasting lunches

Following Christian Martray’s departure, Alain Gousse has since taken on the role of Head Sommelier, and with it, the continuation of our ever popular wine tasting lunches.

We propose a monthly meeting of one or several wine makers, in which they share their know-how and allow you to discover their best wines through a tasting.
The morning wine tasting session is followed by a gastronomic lunch in the Albert 1er restaurant with the elaboration of a special menu in accordance with the winemaker’s wines, who will take pleasure in joining you at the table.

To follow is a sneek preview at our next winetasting event.
