Matter of Taste London will see its 3rd edition from Thursday 6th April 2017 to Saturday 8th April 2017.

 

The 3-day program is built around an all-star cast of four Wine Advocate Reviewers and their favourite wines, featuring “Iconic Wines of the World”.

 

On Thursday 6th April, an exclusive wine dinner for 18 guests will stage a star from the Bordeaux region.

 

On Friday 7th April we will have two exclusive dinners, one of them presenting great Burgundies.

 

On Saturday 8th April, we will see you for a walk about tasting at the De Vere Grand Connaught (Covent Garden) from 12:00 to 6:00pm, where you will be able to revisit great classics or explore up-and-coming rising stars, all wines of outstanding quality rated RP90 and above. Concurrently we will host 5 masterclasses (from 10:00am to 6:00pm), each conducted by one of our expert wine critics.

 

The event will be crowned on the evening of Saturday 8th April at 7pm, by a very special dinner at 67 Pall Mall, which promises to be a truly unique experience with a surprise line-up as our reviewers will be bringing their own RP100 pointers! Each of our reviewers will host a table gathering of 7-9 guests.  Each guest is encouraged to bring your own favourite bottles of wine to enjoy with others (no limitations) to ensure a memorable night.
