Our sommelier Brad has recently acquired the Coravin for the restaurant and it has given us the opportunity of offering our guests’ a glass of something very rare and exclusive! So you can choose that something very special even if it is just that cheeky one!
“We are really excited to be able to showcase this legendary piece of kit. Thought of in 1998 and not released until 2013, this system allows us to serve rare and fine wines by the glass. Whilst his wife was pregnant, Greg Lambrecht (using his background in nuclear physics and mechanical engineering), thought of a concept where he could enjoy a glass of wine without removing the cork and allowing oxygen to effect the wine. Multiple blind tastings then took place after so many years of wines that were poured via the Coravin™ system and they were a success. A thin delicate needle is inserted through the cork and argon gas replaces what is poured.”
