Norton Wine Dinner

Norton Wine Dinner

In 1885, Engineer Edmund James Palmer Norton arrived in Argentina to help build a railway across the Andes and fell in love with the terroir of Mendoza. In 1895 he planted the first vines in Mendoza’s Luján de Cuyo district. Almost a century later, Gernot Langes-Swarovski was similarly struck by Mendoza and its vineyards; in 1989, he acquired Bodega Norton and set about transforming it into the world-renowned winery it is today. Both men rightly recognized the special nature of the area. At 900-1,100 metres, the altitude moderates the temperature while exposing the vines to more ultraviolet light. The result is whites packed with vibrant flavour and good natural acidity, and well-structured, food-friendly reds.

We are honoured to host such a prestigious Argentinian Winery at Simpsons Restaurant on Thursday 14th March where Chef Luke Tipping and his team has crafted a 4 courses dinner and our Head Sommelier Gian Giacomo Stella has found the best wine pairing.

£130 per person to include sparkling wine and canape on arrival, 4 courses dinner, wine pairing, coffee and petit fours.
