Our friends at London Business School would like to extend to Whartonites a wonderful invitation to a fantastic day out in sunny July to visit the vineyard of one of the most exciting English winemakers: Gusbourne Estate in Kent.
Gusbourne is the most awarded English sparkling wine producer (230 wine medals worldwide, Gusbourne winemaker Charlie Holland is the only three-time winner of the IWSC English Wine Producer of the Year).
A visit to the vineyard and a picnic is included. Participants will have a tasting flight of our four sparkling wines to enjoy with their picnic. This will include Brut Reserve, Rosé, Blanc de Blancs and Blanc de Noirs. These will be poured for each guest when they’re seated for their picnics and the host will go through the wine with the table as they’re poured. Guests will then have the four wines in their glasses to enjoy with their picnic. Additional bottles can be purchase in advance or on the day.
Please kindly specify your choice of picnic between: Charcuterie, Vegetarian and Vegan.
