If you love a bit of wine with your food (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?) then treat your tastebuds and grow your grape knowledge with our first wine-matched dinner.

Canteen super chef, Cass Titcombe, has crafted a special menu that not only showcases the best of British produce but also complements wines from one of Portugal’s finest winemakers, a chap called Jaime Quendera.

You can find out more about the food and wine menu, as well as Jaime and his awards by clicking on ourfacebook ‘events’ tab.

Alternatively, email for more information or to book.

This special winemaker’s dinner will take place from 6.30pm on Thursday, 18 November. The venue: Canteen, 67 Baker Street, London W1. The price: £45.

Did you make it to the first Baker Street wine event?

Our second is called ‘Meet the Grower’, where you’ll meet the passionate folk behind some of our wines.

They’ll take you on the journey from grape to glass, sampling as you go.

And the price for such good company and fine wine? Just a tenner, so a great, affordable way to get tipsy, we mean clued up.

Why not come along? Keep the evening of next Thursday (October 14) free and book by emailing
