Celebrating at The Harrow in Little Bedwyn

A wise business coach once told us that we should celebrate our wins, and indeed we do and on Monday night we did with a marvellous evening at The Harrow in Little Bedwyn, where we indulged in their deserved reputation for gourmet food and wine.

Specifically the event was to introduce Veuve Clicquot's new 2002 Vintage Champagne and we were honoured to be introduced to Florianne Eznack from the famous Champagne House and to witness first hand her knowledge and passion as she introduced us to the different Champagnes and we delightfully discovered which went best with which food, as all three vintages: The Veuve Clicquot Vintage Reserve 2002, the much sweeter Veuve Clicqout Rich Reserve 2002 and the Veuve Clicquot Vintage Rose 2002.

Also on hand was the equally knowledgable and charming Chris Rodrigues, the Regional Account Manager for Moet Hennessy, who distribute among other well known brands the very Veuve we enjoyed on Monday evening.

Blissfully though, Moet Hennessy also distribute Cloudy Bay and although this was a Champagne event, masterfully matched the 2005 Pinot Noir with the Salt Marsh New Season Lamb.

It was lovely to assauge the guilt too; for too long we have known about this award winning restaurant just a few miles west of Hungerford, yet this was the first time we had visited and while possibly a little indulgent for a 'school night' we had a superb evening and will no doubt be visiting The Harrow again very soon.
