‘The Art of Sabrage’: Open a bottle of Champagne in style with a Sword with Julian White, UK Ambassador of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or
Three course dinner
£90 per person (the cost covers the certificate)
Aperitif from 7.00pm
After the fantastic success of our first Sabrage dinner back in March 2008 we are going for an ‘Encore’! So do you fancy becoming an officially qualified Champagne Sabreur and obtaining a certificate from the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or?
Julian White, the charismatic UK Ambassador of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or and a Commandeur himself in the Art of Sabrage, will demonstrate for us the technique of opening a bottle of Champagne with a sabre. All of our attendees for this wine dinner will have the opportunity, if they so wish, to be initiated into the Art of Sabrage and thus become a member of the Confrérie. All you have to do is to open a bottle of Champagne with a sword. It is a fun exercise and as they say on the website of the Confrérie du Sabre d’Or: “Do not be downhearted! No-one has ever failed and all it needs is a firm wrist with a high elbow and you’ll be back at your table regaling your fellow guests with tales of how easy it really was.”
The initiation will take place during the evening and a three course dinner will be served alongside the delicious Champagnes from Philippe Brugnon and a red wine selected by Gerard with the main course.
Our wine dinners take place in our Rutherford Bench private room. The layout of the room is made up of three large tables, each table accommodating a maximum of 12 people. On that basis, small parties, couples or single guests will be seated together to form a table of 12.
