Events at The Pompadour by Galvin

Mullineux Wine Dinner

7pm, Thursday 20th July
£85 per person (including wines)

Join us for an exclusive wine dinner at The Pompadour with South African estate Mullineux.

Established in 2007, Mullineux quickly gained a reputation as one of South Africa’s most celebrated wine brands, both locally and on the international front. By 2016 they had received seventeen 5-star ratings from Platter’s South African Wine Guide, as well as being awarded Red Wine of the Year in 2013 and 2016, and Winery of the Year in 2014 and 2016.
 
The family winery based near the village of Riebeek Kasteel, in the Swartland region of South Africa. They produce a select range of hand-crafted wines from the granite and shale based soils of the area. Their aim is to bottle wines that are a true expression of the Swartland. All steps of their winemaking process are taken with this aim in mind and they pay the highest possible attention to detail to everything they do. A natural, minimalist approach is followed both in the vineyards and cellar.

They work closely with a select group of growers who follow sustainable, reasoned farming practices. In the cellar, apart from minimal amounts of sulphur, nothing is added to, or removed from the wines. Mullineux do not make use of any yeasts, acids,tannins, enzymes, or fining and filtering agents.

Our head chef Daniel Ashmore has created an exquisite 5-course menu paired with some of the finest vintages from the estate. Please click here to view the menu.
 
The evening will be hosted by Douglas Wood, the owner and founder of WoodWinters Wines & Whiskies. Since opening their first store just 10 years ago they have been recognised as Scotland's top independent wine merchant with 3 stores across the country they also supply hotels, restaurants and private clients across the UK. 

Douglas moved from a successful career in Chemical Engineering into wine after developing his private passion for travel and wine and being invited to judge at some of the most prestigious wine competitions in the UK. Sourcing exceptional wines from many small artisan growers is only achieved first-hand and Doug has visited South Africa many times.
