The 10 in 8 Group joins forces with World Champion Sommelier, Gerard Basset’s Hotel TerraVina
..... to offer guests an incomparable world class food and wine experience. Arguably one of the greatest wine professionals of his generation, Gerard Basset, OBE is the reigning World Champion Sommelier and the only person ever to simultaneously hold the Master of Wine, Master Sommelier and MBA Wine honours.
The partnership has arisen as a result of the longstanding friendship between Alan and Gerard. To launch the 2012 partnership, Murchison and Basset will be creating three days of unique food and wine events, from the 29th February to 2nd March 2012, at Basset’s award-winning boutique hotel, Hotel TerraVina in The New Forest. The exclusive menu will be created and cooked at each event by Michelin-starred chef Alan Murchison and his team and the wine selected and paired to Alan’s menu by Basset. Hotel TerraVina’s award-winning head sommelier, Laura Rhys, (Master Sommelier and UK Sommelier of the Year, 2009) will be hosting and introducing the wines at each service. It is hoped that these events will be the first in a series in the new partnership.
Says Murchison: ‘We are thrilled to be working with not only a great friend but one of the most skilled and respected figures in the hospitality industry, who shares our values in service, quality and excellence. We are so pleased to be able to offer our guests a incomparable food and wine experience in such a perfect setting as Hotel TerraVina.
Basset commented: ‘I am delighted to work with Alan, whom I have known for over 10 years and to introduce our guests to his truly remarkable food. I’m also very excited at the prospect of further educating not only our guests but the “Foodies” who regularly visit the 10 in 8 Group’s restaurants. This is the beginning of a very exciting partnership.”
