Last night we were delighted to be involved in the Action Against Hunger Too Many Critics event at the Merchants Tavern, Shoreditch. Domaine du Grand Mayne has chosen Action Against Hunger to be our charity partner this year.
This year the critics were put through their paces preparing a meal at Merchants Tavern under Michelin starred chef Angela Hartnett’s strict direction! Cooking for guests including many of London’s top chefs, Domaine du Grand Mayne helped the charity raise well over £30k. A week end at the guest house in the vineyard was bought for £4000 and Angela Hartnett helped the bidding by offering to cook at the house for the winning bidder!
We were thrilled to see our 2012 Réserve Sauvignon Sémillon selected by Olivier Bompas and Jacques Dupont to be part of Le Point’s “summer wine guide”.
You can read the review here and buy the wine by calling Richard in the office.
Simon Woods shares his views on Grand Mayne Sauvignon Côtes de Duras 2013, South West France (£6.95 Domaine du Grand Mayne)
“Classic spring flavours – nettles, cut grass, bracing citrus and greengage with a slightly developed character of honeyed flower water, and just a hint (not unpleasant) of the feline. B”
A French vineyard that launched a crowdfunding campaign has already attracted the record number of investors.
French vineyard and award winning wine maker Domaine du Grand Mayne has gone public on Seedrs today, with the highest number of investors during soft launch that the crowdfunding platform has ever experienced. The business is already almost 50% to its target for funding.
Here at Domaine du Grand Mayne we’ve long been of the opinion that there are some wonderful food pairings for our wines. That’s why we were particularly delighted when renowned sommelier and journalist Olivier Bompas listed us in his recent article about the delights of wild boar.
