Rhone Wine Tasting Evening at Belleek Castle

Belleek Castle are delighted to announce a fantastic food and wine tasting evening, which our head chef Stephen Lenahahas organised for you in partnership with Tindal Wines. We are very privileged that wine maker Simon Tyrrell will be hosting the event and taking you through the wines on the evening. What better way to banish those winter blues than by joining us for a glass of fine wine from the Rhone valley paired with an excellent Tasting Menu designed by Stephen Lenahan. This is sure to be a really fun night with great food, wine and company! What’s more, it is only €85 per person for all food and wine.
 
Our host Simon Tyrrell was for many years the owner of an Irish wine importing business specialising in wines of the Rhône Valley before embarking in 2009 on a two year wine production diploma at the University of Brighton in the UK, studying viticulture and oenology and emerging in 2011 with a distinction. His vintage experience was spent at Domaine M & S Ogier d’Ampuis in Côte-Rôtie and at Château Terre Forte in Côtes du Rhône, Signargues. 
 
In 2012, along with a friend, Charles Derain he founded Les Deux Cols, a wine production business based in the Southern Rhône. For five years they bought grapes from friends within the region and rented cellar space in a winery close to Avignon. However in 2017 they purchased their first vineyard at St. Nazaire in the Gard region and have their own winery just outside the village of St. Gervais.
 
In 2016 Simon merged his wine importing business with Tindal Wine Merchants and has since worked on a number of winemaking projects in Spain on behalf of the Tindal family.
 
We are sure you will be impressed by Simon’s vast knowledge of Rhone valley wines and Stephen Lenahan’s gorgeous menu. Booking is essential!
