The Meat & Wine Co is delighted to announce that its eagerly awaited new wine club, The Meet & Wine Club, will officially launch on Tuesday 2 June with a special event in association with the legendary Champagne house, Taittinger.

The Meet & Wine Club is the latest initiative from the Westfield London-based restaurant that has quickly built up an unrivalled reputation, not just for its extensive range of great international wines, but for its innovative fare.

Can’t tell your Pinotage from your Pinot Noir? Or do you pride yourself on being a bit of a Premier Cru? In either case, The Meet & Wine Club is for you!

Offering a potent mix of fine wines, great food and insider knowledge, the club will host entertaining and informative monthly events on the first Tuesday of every month (with the exception of August).

These soirées will be perfect for those who want to learn more about wine in a relaxed and convivial atmosphere.

The events scheduled to date are as follows:

THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN BBQ (7 July 2009) Price: £20.00

As summer approaches so thoughts turn to one of life’s simplest pleasures: alfresco dining. This year resist the urge to pair barbecue food with any old plonk and make a date at The Meet & Wine Club. An Australian wine expert will be on hand to give a rundown on the big, bold and quaffable varieties that will complement flavours rather than overpowering them. There will also be plenty of BBQ tips on offer plus a delicious selection of Meat & Wine Company meats for guests to sample.

‘CALL MY BLUFF” MR CHANCELLOR (1 September 2009) Price: TBC

In the current climate everyone is looking at ways to economise. Tonight it’s all about buying value for money wines. Our experts will guide you through this potential minefield, revealing that it’s not all about heading straight for the cheapest on the shelf, but being adventurous. They’ll also be challenging you to tell the difference between a selection of vin ordinaire and vintage. And any pupil who achieves full marks will be entered into a draw to win a wine hamper. Accompanying the taste test will be platters of delicious canapés.
