At The Swan

Wine Tasting Dinners

The result of an inspired collaboration between our Group Sommelier and Wine Buyer François Belin and Head Chef Justin Kett, our exquisite wine tasting dinners offer the chance to savour wines from around the world.

Each wine tasting dinner begins at 7pm with an apéritif and canapés in the lounge, followed by the three-course dinner served at 7.30pm in one of our elegant private dining rooms, with guests seated together at the banquet table. The wine dinners are very popular and places are limited, so early reservation is recommended.
