Until December guests to Summer Lodge Hotel (www.summerlodgehotel.co.uk) can experience the extraordinary skills of the UK’s leading sommelier Eric Zwiebel and award winning Executive Chef Steven Titman as they marry their skills once again to create their renowned Wine Dinners.

Cellar Master Eric Zwiebel recently represented the UK at the prestigious ASI World Sommelier Contest held in Japan in March, finishing fourth. Steven Titman is the critically acclaimed Executive Chef at the restaurant at Summer Lodge, which has been recognised as the leading restaurant in Dorset.

Together they have created 12 wine dinners* starting on 4th June through to 3rd December 2013. Focusing on a selected house or style chosen by Eric Zwiebel, and with a guest speaker to inform and entertain diners, the wine dinners begin at 7pm with an introduction to the selected wines. Dinner includes a delicious four-course menu specially created by Steven Titman to complement the five different wines (including aperitifs) showcased during the evening.
Among the 12 dates are three shorter wine courses held over lunch as well as two very special black tie events; the first being a Black Tie dinner on the 6th August with 5 Sommeliers and the second on 3rd December for a very special Black Tie dinner with Pommery Champagne.
The short wine course lunches start from £49.50 per person and the wine dinners are from £99 per person. The Pommery Champagne Black Tie dinner costs from £150 per person.
