WINE CELLAR TASTING DINNERS AND TOURS 2012
Wine tasting dinners has proved very popular with many of our clients in the past. Our award winning Sommelier Lisa O’Doherty, can provide assistance with the initial set up, concept, agree menu food and wine matching and costing. On the evening Lisa will give a talk and a tour of our wine cellar, followed by a brief talk before each course at dinner.
Cellar tours and/or wine tasting are another area of interest as a pre dinner activity or a fun way to pass a few hours. The wine cellar at The K Club was built by an infamous Bordeaux family, the Barton's and remains a wonderful atmospheric space to explore, full of dusty bottles and hidden treasures such as our 1928 Beychevelle and the biggest collection of Chateau Petrus in Ireland.
Both of these options are designed as a fun and informal evening, the wine tasting and cellar tour make a great alternative to pre dinner drinks for corporate events and monthly wine dinners.
Lisa’s clients for wine dinners and wine tasting include N.C.B. Stockbrokers, Sutton Golf Club, Sanofi Aventis, and The National Concert Hall.
