Wine Supper at Rafael’s Restaurant at the Goods Shed, 19th June

Rafa has put together a late spring, early summer, almost solstice supper, for us. It promises to be flavoursome yet light, perfect for those late warm evenings.

We will start with a glass of English sparkling wine and proceed with wines to partner each course. The full menu, with matching wines, is below. The meal, wines and tea and coffee are all included in the cost of £55/person. Places are limited so please, to avoid disappointment, please book as early as possible.  

As usual we will go to the table at 7.30 pm, with the bubbles being poured from 7.15 pm. Carriages, taxis and departure from 10.45 pm.

So if you would like to enjoy the flavours of the season please do get touch and book your place(s). You can book by emailing me at clivewine@aol.com or calling 07778 640381.

Spring Dinner at the Goods Shed

A great night of food and wine at Rafael’s Restaurant at the Goods Shed, with Rafa choosing some seasonal dishes of interest and quality. I have selected some terrific wines to partner to dishes including some new wines imported directly from Spain. The menu is to be found below.

A Mano Aleatico di Puglia Passito, Puglia 2009


The dinner, including wines, coffee or tea, costs £55 and tickets can be purchased by emailing me on clivewine@aol.com or phoning 07778 640381. It promises to be a great evening, starting with aperitifs from 7.15 pm and going to the table at 7.30 pm. We aim to finish at around 10.30 pm.

The wines have been carefully selected to give interest and quality and to partner the dishes. Whilst each wine is fascinating and offers a taste treat, I am particularly looking forward to  the exceptional Aleatico di Puglia Passito, made from semi dried Aleatico grapes, which has an extraordinary character of sweet ripe fruit and sour cherry acidity.

Places are limited so if you would like to attend please let me know soon.
