Faine waine dinner in London in February

  • Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 1988 - Louis Latour (2 bottles)

Three-course dinner with coffee and petit fours

£150 members, £170 Guests, Available spaces: 12

Tickets from cecwine@cecwine.co.uk

I have posted news of London's Civil Engineers' Wine Club before because their events look good on paper, or screen and I have now had feedback from those who have attended that they are indeed very well run.

I'm posting below therefore the rest of their programme for the first part of 2004.
