Ruinart champagne and Bourne & Hollingsworth Buildings invite you to join us for a truly magical evening, with cuisine from Chef Adam Gray paired with wines from the oldest Champagne house, in the decadent surroundings of the Greenhouse at Bourne & Hollingworth Buildings.
Ruinart is a low profile, yet select Champagne house which is steeped in history. It dates back to the 17th century, the time of the famous Dom Pérignon. It was founded in 1729 by Nicolas Ruinart in the city of Reims, the year after a Royal Decree in 1728 whereby Louis XV gave his consent for sparkling wines to be shipped in baskets containing 50 to 100 bottles. This opened the gates of Europe to champagne and thus makes Ruinart the oldest Champagne House.
Over a five-course banquet we'll experience of some of the finest dishes and wines in existence, we’ll travel from the founding of the Maison in 1729 through to today, when Ruinart is prized amongst connoisseurs the world over.
