Winemaker’s Dinner Domaine Sainte Rose

We are delighted that Charles and Ruth Simpson, owners and winemakers of Domaine Sainte Rose in Languedoc will be co-hosting our winemaker’s dinner at Ballyvolane House in association with James Nicholson Wine Merchant on Friday, 20 March 2015.

Domaine Sainte Rose is an exceptional viticultural estate situated in the Languedoc region. Charles and Ruth Simpson from the UK left their respective international careers to pursue their mutual dream to establish a boutique vineyard and winery of their own. Since purchasing the Domaine in 2002, the Simpson’s have created a successful rante of high quality wines that are marketed across Europe and North America. The Simpson’s have a very specific quality-oriented strategy. Their improvements in the farming of the vineyards combined with significant investment in state of the art winemaking equipment have enabled them to acheive their goal of creating small quantities of authentic, hand-crafted, family-made wines of distinction.

We have listed some of their wines on the list at Ballyvolane House for sometime now having been blown-away by the fantastic Barrel Selection Rousanne when we first sampled it a few years ago. Charles will present each of the wines before each course. 

The price is €75 per person to include one of Justin’s Rhubarb Martinis using Blackwater No. 5 London Dry Gin (just launched by the Blackwater Distillery) at 7.30pm and a 4-course dinner and all the Domaine Sainte Rose wines at 8pm.
