We will mix business with pleasure: the serious business of fine wine tasting together with the pleasure of connecting with senior peers, colleagues and friends from leading UK organisations. Alongside the gourmet dinner, there will be a champagne reception and wine tasting, hosted by entertaining and experienced Chief Wine Officer host Julian Chamberlen.
This part of the evening involves some light-hearted wine-related team competition, with the winner receiving the ultimate accolade – the Chief Wine Officer. The wine theme is ‘Grape expectations’, take a classic grape variety produced in two wildly differing regions – one traditional, one unexpected – and compare the results.
Julian Chamberlen is a highly experienced Chief Wine Officer host, and nothing gives him greater pleasure than sharing his extensive wine experience with our guests. He is a partner in Farthinghoe fine wine, a former Sales Director at Goedhuis, and previously at Layton’s, Bibendum and Veuve Clicquot. A passionate and committed disciple of the grape, Julian has spent 30+ years picking vines, making wine, studying to diploma-level, and travelling to countless European and Australian vineyards.
