Love Italian food and wine?
The two pair together so naturally and deliciously and it always a joy for us to combine the two. We are therefore delighted to host an Italian Wine Dinner on Tuesday October 31st at Lympstone Manor in our Pool House Restaurant with a selection of wonderful regionally Italian inspired dishes paired with outstanding and characterful wines that cover a range of regions and styles from some of the most highly recognised producers in the country.
The dinner will be hosted by Marc Millon, who will introduce Italian wine in general and comment on each of the wine selections and how they pair so perfectly with the regionally inspired dishes that Michael, Jordan and the kitchen team have created especially for the evening. Italy has more indigenous native grape varieties than anywhere else in the world and this evening aims to introduce some of them, varieties that guests may not have heard of or tasted before but which are outstanding and individual. Similarly, the foods for the evening will take guests on a culinary ‘Giro d’Italia’, a journey around Italy to discover the many flavours of the country.
Marc Millon has worked with Michael for more than 23 years and is Editorial Director at Lympstone Manor. Marc is a widely published food, wine and travel writer and the author (together with his photographer wife Kim) of 14 books on these topics including The Wine Roads of Italy (Premio Barbi Colombini) and The Food Lovers Companion Italy. His latest book, Italy in a wineglass – the story of Italy through its wines will be published in the UK and US in Spring 2024. Marc is a certified Vinitaly International Academy Italian Wine Ambassador (IWA), one of the highest and most respected of Italian wine qualifications. He takes groups on gastronomic cultural tours to Italy, France and the West
Country with Martin Randall Travel, the UK’s leading cultural travel company. When he is not on the road, Marc lives in Topsham, just upriver from Lympstone Manor.
The evening will commence at 7.00pm with canapés and an arrival drink, taking seats at 7.30pm in the Pool House dining area for a fun evening of Italian food and wine. We look forward to welcoming you to Lympstone Manor.
