Virtual wine and food tasting masterclass
Back by popular demand
Popular duo Tom Gilbey and Peter Fiori are hosting another virtual wine and food tasting masterclass on Friday 2 October from 7pm so you can learn all about some more delicious wines and food that matches perfectly with them. And this time, we’ll be adding to the fun by running a competition to find the most impressive dish created on the night!
SAMPLE THREE TASTY TIPPLES
Tom Gilbey, founder of wine merchants The Vintner, who supply the Coutts dining rooms, will be exploring three delightful wines (you'll receive two bottles of each wine being tasted):
- Henri Favre NV Brut Champagne, Dizy, Champagne, France
- Secateurs Chenin Blanc, Adi Badenhorst, Swartland, South Africa
- Barbera d'Alba DOC 'La Gemella’, Viberti Giovanni, Piedmont, Italy
Last year, Peter created our ‘From harvest to plate’ Skyline Garden Cookbook which features recipes using the fruit and vegetables harvested from our rooftop. As part of this, we partnered with food surplus charity The Felix Project, which provides fresh food to vulnerable people across London, and for every book we sell, we donate the entire £40 cost of the book to The Felix Project. Coutts Current Account holders can order copies of the book by calling Coutts 24 on 020 7957 2424, who’ll arrange for £40 to be transferred from your account to The Felix Project.

EXTENDING THE INVITE TO GUESTS
Clients have previously asked if they could extend the invite to their friends and family. If you’d like to do this, then we’d be delighted for your guests to join the fun. They can either register for the Zoom and order the wine themselves or you can do this on their behalf. Please note that separate orders will need to be placed when ordering the wine online. Alternatively, you can call The Vintner on 020 7352 4083 who’ll arrange this for you (they’re available from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday).

We’d love to see the dishes that you create on the night. We’re therefore running a competition to find the most impressive creation. Simply photograph your dishes and email them to ~CouttsEvents@coutts.com telling us what you particularly enjoyed about the dish, by midnight on 4 October 2020, to be in with the chance of winning one wine tasting box with the four wines for our next masterclass on 13 November. The competition is open to everyone over 18 who has registered for the masterclass and who is UK resident. There’s one prize available.
