One of Greater Manchester’s most prestigious hotels is gearing up to host a series of “intimate” wine dinners throughout 2022.
The Lowry Hotel’s Wine Dinner Series is set to give guests the chance to dine within the five-star surroundings of the hotel’s award-winning River Restaurant’s private dining room and enjoy some canapés and a five-course meal that has been expertly-prepared and paired with a range of world-class wines and champagnes.
Kicking off on 28 May, with tickets now available and setting you back £104 per person, this unmissable dining series is being hosted in collaboration with Pommery Champagne for the first event, and will continue with Château La Gordonne in June, followed by a gin dinner with the North West-based distillery, Four Sis4ers, in October.
Fancy grabbing tickets to the first event of the series?
You’ll be treated to five courses, accompanied by five unique drink pairings.
To start with, guests will be greeted with a glass of Pommery Brut Royal – a beautifully-balanced champagne, with hints of brioche and honey – paired delicately with canapes, including beef fillet tartare with wasabi and cured egg yolk on a toasted brioche, and chucked bay oysters with compressed apple and cucumber granita.
Next up is teriyaki-cured salmon with horseradish crispbread and white rice, and a potato and mussel espuma mousse, that’s paired with Pommery Blanc de Blancs – a champagne crafted from a selection of chardonnay grapes.
On the menu for the main course is lamb fillet wellington, which will be paired with Rare Vineyard Pinot Noir – which is described as “an inviting wine” that’s made from Pinot Noir grapes.
Then, for the desert course, a rhubarb tart with goat’s milk sorbet, which will be paired with Pommery Brut Rose – a blend of rosé and Pinot Noir, with a pale pink finesse overlaid with a hint of red berries – and finally, to finish, guests will be able to taste a Late Bottled Vintage Port, which will be served with Lancashire bomb cheddar, alongside an iconic traditional Greater Manchester sweet treat, Eccles cake.
The first event in the The Lowry Hotel Wine Dinner Series on Saturday 28 May will start at 7pm in the hotel’s library for arrival drinks and canapés, followed by dinner at 8pm in the River Restaurant’s private dining room.
Details of future events are to be announced throughout the year, so keep your eyes peeled.
