Oscar Glory at Hotel du Vin

Hotel Du Vin & Bistro Birmingham on Church Street starts 2015 with a spring in its steps as it announces a New Head Sommelier to the team. Oscar J Malek is excited to be joining the hotel from the Chewton Glen Hotel in Hampshire this month.

Oscar said,

“After much deliberation I am pleased to announce that I shall be returning to my home city of Birmingham to take on the role of Head Sommelier at Hotel du Vin, previously held by renowned Sommelier Francois Bourde who has recently taken up residence at The Pig in the New Forest. I am very excited by the prospect of taking on a new and exciting wine list and hope to create a world-renowned wine offering in the heart of the Midlands!”

And what better way to enjoy Hotel du Vin’s wine expertise than by attending a couple of new gourmet dinner dates in February and March.

Wine Dinner favourite and Master Sommelier, Nigel Wilkinson MS, hosts a 'Wines of Portugal' Dinner on Friday 6th February priced at £79. There will be an Aperitif and Canapés before sitting down to a 4 course dinner matched to 5 more wonderful wines. Nigel will tell us all we need to know about Portugal and their wines during a fun, relaxed and enjoyable evening.

Then it’s time to dress up for dinner on Friday the 6th March as the hotel hosts a 'Black Tie' Laurent Perrier Dinner priced at £110.

General Manager Tony Elvin says,

“Laurent Perrier's fantastic range of fine champagnes lends itself to our four course dinner experience as we marry the diverse flavours of LP Brut, Ultra Brut, Rose, Grande Siècle and Demi Sec to some tantalising Hotel du Vin creations from Head Chef Gregory Pryce and his team. John Cleary of Laurent Perrier will host the evening talking us through the history of Laurent Perrier and their amazing champagnes.”

I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s an Oscar winning formula.
