An evening with Steven Spurrier illustrated with six wines from Furleigh Estate and Bride Valley paired with canapés from around the globe.
The world of wine is full of fascinating stories - and Steven Spurrier's life within the trade has been rich and eventful.
From an inspirational glass of 1908 Vintage Port at the age of thirteen to the Judgement of Paris - a blind tasting by nine of France's most revered palates who placed a selection of Californian wines above the greatest French wines - Steven has not only had singularly unique vinous experiences, but he has left an indelible footprint in a highly respected global industry.
Steven Spurrier was 2017 Decanter Man of the Year, a title generally reserved for the greatest of the world's wine makers.
A collection of five carefully crafted canapés reflecting Steven's vinous travels from Bride Valley in Dorset to Paris, California, India and Japan will be served during the evening.
A welcome glass of Furleigh Estate Classic Cuvée 2014 will be served on arrival at 6.45pm.
The tasting will start at 7pm.

Have you got a grapevine in your garden which you have always wanted to prune properly? Learn the pruning principles from the Furleigh professionals to maximise grape production and see your vine flourish.
The day starts in the Furleigh Estate Cellar Door with freshly roasted coffee and pastries. This will be followed by an introduction to the pruning methods used at Furleigh Estate.
Then it's out to the vineyard where you will be able to try out these techniques for yourself, and learn some useful tips about how to get the most out of your own vine.
A well-deserved glass of Furleigh fizz will await your return to the tasting room where a member of the Groves Nursery team will be on hand to talk you through the world of secateurs.
A rustic warming two course lunch will be served with a glass of wine.
Please bring secateurs, gardening gloves and wear warm waterproof clothing and boots.
