It's a real pleasure to host the Hambledon Vineyard at Cigalon for our annual Christmas wine dinner taking place on Wednesday 24th November.
Hambledon is England's oldest commercial vineyard situated on chalky Hampshire soils just outside of Portsmouth and producing the best expressions of English Sparkling wine you can find. Their vines date back to the 1950s and are planted on soils featuring the same chalk as found in the best Chardonnay areas of the Côtes des Blancs in Champagne.
For this dinner we will be joined by Hambledon's winemaker Tobias Tullberg and trying three signature Cuvées from the Hambledon cellars with food pairings from Julien, Christophe and the team.
As always, we will make the full selection of wines available to purchase on the night and take-home with you ahead of the festive season, santé!
