To make your experience even more luxurious we will take the stress of planning your travel out of your hands, instead transporting you there and back in our beautiful Mercedes Maybach hire car.
Your luxury wine masterclass day will begin when your professional Mercedes chauffeur arrives at your address, dressed in formal attire to set the tone. Our chauffeurs can collect you from any address in or around London and will transport you to Fitzrovia as you enjoy a unique view of the cityscape. The Mercedes Maybach was built to be a chauffeur-driven car; this isn’t a car you want to drive, it’s a car you simply want to be driven in. You and your guest can relax and recline in the back of this spacious executive car, with ample legroom even for the tallest of occupants.
The beautiful Mercedes Maybach features the finest quality materials, completed in tasteful colour combinations for a stunning, simple space. Luxury leathers have been paired with alacantra, wood and glass to give a modern finish to a timeless design. Take control of the audio, ambient lighting and climate settings to create the perfect space to relax and enjoy each other’s company whilst your chauffeur concentrates on getting you to the venue safely and promptly.
Once you arrive at Pied à Terre you will get to view and learn about the art of wine serving, how and when to decant as well as the different types of wine glass shape and what to use them for. As well as classic red and white wines, this Michelin starred venue boasts rare vintage wines in its cellar alongside wines derived from uncommon grape types or from countries not typically known for producing wine. Your sommeliers have years of experience and expert knowledge on wine and will impart as much as they can on you through informal talks, demonstrations and interactivity, even teaching you how to organise your own wine cellar.
When you’ve worked up an appetite take the time to enjoy the included four-course a la carte tasting lunch. Your lunch may include dishes such as lemon sole, its flavour enhanced by rich ingredients like burnt lemon and home pickled redcurrants or Scottish beef tartare, served with a quail egg and crispy shallots. Of course, your four-course tasting menu wouldn’t be complete without a wine flight, giving you an example of the styles of wine to pair with each main ingredient.
Once your wine masterclass is complete, your Mercedes chauffeur will be on hand to return you and your guest back home. Discuss what you’ve learnt and how to put it into practice or take a break and catch up on the news, emails and social media. The luxury wine masterclass for two is an excellent gift for a friend or a unique experience day for yourself, stepping away from the norm and doing something a little different whilst remaining in utter luxe.
