The 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group has joined forces with World Champion Sommelier Gerard Basset 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.
