The Annual Mentzendorff Portfolio Tasting
Wednesday 7th of March saw the Annual Mentzendorff Portfolio Tasting return to One Great George Street for another great event. This day always offers a fantastic opportunity to bring together our winemakers and principals from around the world with so many of our customers from up and down the country to taste through our range and to develop our business together.
The entire portfolio of Champagnes, wines, fortified wines and spirits was available to taste as well as some stellar new releases such as the Champagne Bollinger La Grande Année Rosé 2007, Ayala Blanc de Blancs 2010, Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona Brunello di Montalcino 2013, AIX Rosé 2017 and the unbelievably fresh Bodegas Hidalgo-La Gitana En Rama.
Wine may be our thing, but everyone deserves a lip-smacking cocktail or a vivifying long drink on occasion! So this year saw the return of Ludwig’s Cocktail Lounge, named after our founder Ludwig Mentzendorff who first brought Mentzendorff Kummel to England in 1851, where a number of cocktails and long drinks using ingredients from our own portfolio were on offer.
