Taking place in its beautiful private dining rooms, Searcys at the Gherkin is launching its 2020 series of sky-high wine dinners this March
Wine & dine with your head in the clouds this spring. Following on from the success of last year’s elevated wine dinners, Searcys at the Gherkin will once again spoil foodies with spectacular panoramic views, live entertainment and prestige wines for four unique events throughout 2020.
Each one-off dinner will see a special collaboration between world renowned vineyards and Searcys’ executive chef Shaun Rowlands. Hosted in the Gherkin’s renovated suite of private dining rooms, guests will enjoy acclaimed wines from across the globe alongside expertly paired seasonal dishes.
Kicking things off on 20 March is a showcase of Argentinian fine wines, with an indulgent four-course meal paired with a selection of Gruner, Veltliner, Malbec, sweet and sparkling wines from Bodega Norton in Mendoza, Argentina.
Searcys’ classically seasonal menu will include a fresh starter of Burrata, figs, radicchio and pomegranate, followed by an indulgent main course of Lake District feather-blade steak with celeriac and purple sprouting broccoli.
Each dish will be paired with a different wine, presented by Helix Restaurant’s Head Sommelier, Jean-Paul Baptiste.
Founded in 1895, the historic vineyard produces outstanding wines at an altitude of up to 1,100 meters. The whites are packed with vibrant flavours and natural acidity, the reds are mellow, with a full bouquet of red and dark berries.
Sitting high above London on the 38th floor of this Norman Foster designed building, the Gherkin’s private dining rooms have been designed to created memorable, sky-high gatherings and events.
The five rooms are aptly named after clouds, Alto, Cirrus, Stratus, Cumulus and Nimbus offer spectacular views of the capital.
As someone once said, “Life is but a fine wine to be sipped and favoured” – an ideal opportunity to devour delicious cuisine alongside world-class wines, it’s time to book your spot.
