A Great Weekend of Indulgence!
The Mullion Cove Hotel Food and Wine Weekend drew to a close yesterday and has to have gone down as our best yet! We kicked the weekend off with a cheery and fascinating tasting of Cornwall’s own Camel Valley wines hosted by the UK’s three time Wine Maker of the Year Sam Lindo.
Sam treated us to a fabulous insight into his wines including the chance to sample his Camel Valley Pinot Rosé 2009 which has just been awarded the Trophy for International Sparkling Rosé at Bollicini del Mondo for the second year in a row! A true world champion!
On Saturday night we were treated to a talk and tasting from our wine merchant (and local cricket hero) Mark Rowe. Mark and his brother Andrew run Constantine Stores which has been a family business in the drinks trade for over fifty years and they boast one of the largest ranges of wines and spirits in the South West (they stock over 1000 different whiskies!) As usual Mark entertained us all and treated us to a variety of wines from around the world and one of his whiskies!
The Chefs worked their magic all weekend culminating in a six course gala dinner on Saturday night. Adam (the MCH in-house wine guru) skillfully matched the dishes to some fantastic wines to the enjoyment of all concerned.
Detox starts now!
