Menu and Voyage

Champagne and Canapés
Pierre Gimonnet Cuis 1er Cru Blanc de Blancs Brut NV, Champagne (Served from magnum)

Our journey starts off with a short ferry ride to France, home of great Champagne. What better way to start an exciting round the world voyage…


Leek and black truffle velouté

Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis 2013, Piemonte, Italy

From France we follow the route of the Orient Express south through to Italy and the warm climes of the Mediterranean where our sail boat awaits for foreign shores…


Pressed terrine of foie gras, clementine, almonds

Delaire Graff Chenin Blanc 2012, Swartland, South Africa

Our next stop is deepest, darkest Africa in our search for hidden gems, excitement and a safe passage to the bountiful Cape…


Cornish fillet of turbot, black cabbage, mushroom, chicken sauce

Seresin Rachel Pinot Noir 2010, Marlborough, New Zealand

The waters of the Great Southern Ocean are renowned for holding many surprises. New Zealand is by far one of the biggest, with its stunning scenery and coastal vineyards rewarding the most challenging of vineyard owners with fantastic results. A refreshing stop before we board our plane across the Pacific…


Balmoral Estate venison, pumpkin, cima de rapa, prunes

Freemark Abbey Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Napa Valley, California

Gliding in over the Golden Gates gives you a first glimpse of mysterious fog bound Napa and Sonoma. It is here that the bright lights and Hollywood factor can detract from the great wines produced by so many small boutique wineries. How much this area has grown up since Fogg first landed in San Francisco!


Milk chocolate cremeux, roasted pineapple scented with chilli, ginger ice cream

Peller Estate Vidal Ice Wine, Niagara, Ontario, Canada

As we cross the great plains heading North East to the coast we arrive at Niagara Falls, a stunning backdrop and border that separates the USA from Canada. Many would think that this was impassable for wine production, however the shores of the Great Lakes in Canada provide some of the most hardened grapes for delightful sweet ice wines.


Selection of British and French cheeses

Noval 20 Year Old Tawny Port, Douro Valley, Portugal

From Canada we set sail back towards Europe, across the cold North Atlantic with its moisture laden Gulf Stream that has such a big effect upon the wine producing zones of Northern Europe, to land in Bristol. Originally this was the UK’s main warehousing and shipping hub for the wine industry. It was these links that the British forged that still hold true today with many English families involved in Bordeaux and Cognac, but most importantly Port in the Douro Valley. It is on this that we end our incredible wine journey back in the UK.

*Guests will be grouped together on tables of ten or more. Children to be a minimum of 14 years old.
