Wine DINNERS at Covent Garden Hotel
Journey through the flavours of Eastern Europe and beyond at Covent Garden Hotel this spring as we present our series of four Wine Dinners. From the culinary delights of Czechia and Slovenia to the sun-drenched vineyards of Swartland in South Africa, each dinner will begin with a canapé reception before guests take their seats for an indulgent four-course menu paired with exquisite wines.
Join us for an inspiring dining experience, guided by our esteemed wine experts, and celebrate the art of wine and culinary craftsmanship from around the globe.

SOUTH AFRICA - TUESDAY 30TH APRIL
We are excited to welcome Craig Hawkins, Founder of Testalonga, to present some of our favourite South African wines – think new age Chenin Blanc, Pét-Nat and Swartland reds. Join us for what promises to be a fun and inspiring look at the future of South African winemaking along with delicious food from a country that is influenced by many different cuisines and cultures.
SHERRY - MONDAY 13TH MAY
Sherry is perhaps one of the most overlooked wines which is why we’ve decided to spend an evening celebrating its diversity. This dinner will take you on a journey of discovery and introduce you to Sherry’s many guises – from dry Fino through nutty Oloroso and into sweet Pedro Ximenez.
ENGLISH SPARKLING WITH RATHFINNY - MONDAY 10TH JUNE
As avid supporters of English Sparkling, we will be hosting a special Wine Dinner with our friends at the Sussex-based Rathfinny Wine Estate. Start with a glass of their 2017 Classic Cuvée, poured from magnums, before enjoying a host of their newly released 2019 vintages paired with seasonal British dishes.
Emerging Regions - Friday 12th July
We love to seek out lesser known wines from emerging regions, so are delighted to have one of our specialist suppliers, Basket Press Wines, host one of our Wine Dinners. Look forward to a selection of forward thinking, daring, independent wines from Central and Eastern Europe, presented by the Founder Jiří Majerik.
