Richard J Smith captivated his audience with an introduction to unique wines from around the world. The presentations were interspersed with delicious canapés to compliment the wines.
The event was organised in conjunction with Mercer & Associates and Lomani Luxury Travel. It included a charity auction for Children Today which featured a prize of a night’s stay at the Craxton Wood Hotel & Spa, which raised over £1,200 for the charity.
Richard J Smith said: ‘It was fantastic to see such a wide selection of Chester businesses in attendance, and to offer people an introduction to The Wine School of Cheshire events.’
This year celebrating 25 years in the industry and having worked with every genre of client, from the royal family down, Richard encourages people to be passionate about food and wine pairings and strongly believes that wine tasting should be inclusive to all, and be fun. w
