We’re delighted to welcome two of the continent’s most impressive winemakers to spend the afternoon sharing their stories and wines paired alongside a delicious menu from King Street Townhouse, in their impressive private dining space.

Both Susana Balbo of Argentina and Marcelo Papa of Concha y Toro of Chile are considered the top of their game in the winemaking world and, as such, are amongst Buyer Toby Morrhall’s favourite producers. They both make own label wines for us which recognise their incredible craftsmanship, as well as both having made very special limited-edition wines to celebrate our 150th anniversary.

At this food and wine feast the pair will be showing these limited-edition wines to explain what makes them so special, as well as a series of other wines from their stable, all expertly paired with a menu designed by the popular fine dining team at luxury hotel, King Street Townhouse.

So, join us in welcoming these producers who have flown in especially for this one-off event and to celebrate our 150th anniversary with our members.
