We will be bringing France to Stevenage with a specially prepared four-course meal served alongside carefully chosen wine pairings which we hope will add a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to this fun soiree. With almost half the wines on The Society’s List coming from France we’ve certainly got plenty to choose from so expect some classic combinations alongside some food and wine pairings you might not have tried before. 

We hope to see you for what will be an unforgettable evening, celebrating all things French – fun guaranteed, berets optional. 

Please see below the gastronomic and vinous delights we shall be enjoying: 

Salmon and smoked salmon Rillettes served with toasted French Baguette. 
1.  Champagne Jeaunaux-Robin Talus-Saint-Prix Brut NV

Whether traveling from near or far you will be greeted with a warm welcome and cool drink on arrival before you are led through an evening of food and wine discovery by way of a four-course meal with six matching wines.

Your palates will be teased and challenged and ultimately delighted as each wine pairing is meticulously planned to bring together seasonal produce with delicious wines from our 1,500+ wine list including rare treats from our stores of mature vintages.

Our friendly Tastings team will be on hand to guide you through the wines and dishes, offering fascinating insights into the wines, their producers and their winemaking practices, and chatting through why the food and wine pairings were chosen.

Join us for a night of tasty food, delicious wines and great company.
