Thursday , March the 20th, 7:30pm
"First I may not be, second I will not be, Mouton I am"
"First I am, second I was, I Mouton do not change."
Baron Nathaniel de Rothschild purchased Chateau Brane Mouton in 1853, renamed it Chateau Mouton Rothschild and ever since it has been in the same family ownership. In 1921 Baron Philippe de Rothschild inherited the estate and spent the next 50 years experimenting with the latest techniques, improving the wine and purchasing other estates and creating new wines such Opus One in Napa California.
Philippe Koch, Export Director from Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, will host this event in our Private Dining Room and will take us through a selection of their wines from Pauillac, St Emilion and Almaviva in Chile. It promises to be a fascinating evening
