A SOLIHULL wine merchants is taking drinkers on a trip around the globe at a series of new wine tasting events at a pub in neighbouring Warwickshire.
Fraziers, who have been supplying wine to trade since 1989, are now teaming up with The Hatton Arms in Warwick as part of a new menu of culinary treats launched by the pub.
The wine tasting is delivered by Frazier’s Operations Director Steve Jay who has created a Connoisseurs selection of wines to complement the food.
Steve said: “We always start with a sparkler from the selected country, we then move to a white and then we do two reds and finish with a dessert wine.
“As the months get a little warmer, we will move to two whites and one red and if possible, we may do a Rose evening in the summer depending on weather, we would hopefully do this outdoors.”
The next wine tasting will take diners across the other side of the globe to Australia, on February 23rd.
Meanwhile, it’s all things Swiss every Wednesday at the new Hatton Arms Fondue Nights, with a choice of Fondue or Fondue and Steak menus, served between 5-9pm.
Manager Steph Ward said: “The Hatton Arms team have also been educated about their wines and can be more informative for the guests who like their wines. It’s a different kind of experience and something we haven’t done before at the pub and the chefs are enjoying the chance to be creative in this way.”
“The fondue nights came about because we wanted to bring something different to the area, something to bring people together, a sharing experience, especially after the pandemic.”
The Wine Tasting Nights take place on the last Thursday of each month and cost £40pp.
The Fondue menu is available every Wednesday night for £23 or £32 (for steak and fondue).
