About the Event
Neal Martin is one of our foremost wine critics and authors and, luckily for us, he's from Southend!
Having previously written for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, Neal is now Senior Editor at Vinous where he is the font of all knowledge when it comes to Bordeaux, Burgundy, South Africa and New Zealand.
Neal's first book, 'Pomerol', is widely regarded as the most definitive guide of the region with copies trading hands at over £2000. This year he publishes his second book, 'The Complete Bordeaux Vintage Guide: 150 Years from 1870 to 2020', which not only documents each vintage, but aligns them with musical artists, cinema and world events.
We are absolutley honoured that Neal will be joining us on Friday 18th May, where we'll taste 5 glorious clarets alongside a 3 course meal to celebrate to launch of he's book. As well as the food, wine and Neal's company, the ticket price also includes a complimentary copy of the book.
