The luxurious 15th century Swan Hotel at Lavenham has teamed up with world famous wine producer Gut Oggau to host a gourmet dinner sampling elegant Austrian wines matched with delectable cuisine. A perfect combination for fine wine and food lovers, the exclusive evening will take place on Friday, 9th August.
Hosted by Frederic Grappe, the Gut Oggau UK ambassador and former owner of Dynamic Vines, the sophisticated dinner will include a different wine to match each of the three courses plus an aperitif. This exquisite dinner is the result of an inspired collaboration between our Head Sommelier, François Belin, and Head Chef Justin Kett.
Gut Oggau is a 13 hectare Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by Lake Neusiedl run by Eduard Tscheppe and his wife Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck. Focusing on quality and gentle processing, their aim is to achieve a natural vine balance making the best use of their vineyard's strengths. Complex and original, some of their cuvées can be found in top restaurants around Europe, with only 15,000 to 18,000 bottles produced each year.
The experience begins at 7pm with the aperitif and canapés in the lounge. This will be followed by a three-course dinner served at 7.30pm in The Swan's elegant private dining room with guests seated together at the banquet table. As these wine dinners are becoming very popular and places are limited, early reservation is recommended; any special dietary requirements should also be advised when booking since it's a set menu.
The full Gut Wine Oggau dinner to include an overnight stay and Suffolk breakfast is priced from £125 per person, based on two sharing a Classic double or twin room.
To join the Gut Oggau wine dinner only and wine and dine costs £65 per person.
