World Wine & Dine evening at Stanwell House Hotel
Stanwell House, a boutique hotel in Lymington on the southern tip of the New Forest, is hosting a fine food and wine evening in conjunction with Enotria World Wine on Thursday 14 June at 7.30pm; the evening will commence with a glass of Camel Valley Brut from Cornwall, which was awarded a Gold Medal at the Decanter 2012 Wine Awards.
Each of the four course banquet, prepared by Head Chef Chis Lovell, will be accompanied by a tutored tasting of wines from countries around the World by Kent Barker from Enotria World Wine; anyone who thought that fine wine was the preserve of the French and the Italians is in for a pleasant surprise!
The menu will consist of:
South Coast Scallops - Smoked Belly Pork, Split Peas, Shallot Foam
Rump of New Forest Lamb with a Basil Crust – Parmesan Pomme Purée, Fine Ratatouille, Dried Olives
Chocolate Tart - Parsnip Purée, Bergamot Cream, Bitter Chocolate and Orange Paint
Barkham Blue and Tunworth Soft Cheese - homemade Crackers, Grapes, Celery
Freshly ground coffee and fudge to finish.
The evening costs £45 per person and guests are able to stay overnight at a special rate of £50 pp including breakfast (two sharing a room).
Stanwell House Hotel is located at the quay end of Lymington high street, offering an oasis of calm away from the bustling town centre (recently voted the most desirable place to live in Britain) with its famous weekend market which has been trading for close to 900 years.
The Georgian property has just 30 individually-styled bedrooms, including some suites and four-posters and, at its heart, is a large, comfortable conservatory, which is dog friendly, so owners can enjoy a relaxing morning coffee, informal lunch or dinner with the family pet by their side (six of the bedrooms are also dog friendly, £15 per dog per night).
