In this food and wine pairing, it’s all about the fruit characteristic of the Merlot which couples nicely with the contents of the muffin – sweet, ripe beetroot and fruity goat’s cheese.  The components sit comfortably together in an attractive, gentle way.

The touch of Mourvedre blended into this Merlot provides structure and backbone without too much grip.  ‘Smooth’ it the ultimate wine and food descriptive here and an ultimate crowd-pleaser, hence our chosen musical accompaniment:  Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtsmusik

Join us tomorrow night Friday 19th 7.30 at Wimbledon Library – Measure For Measure – it’s gonna be a blast!

The American, An Architect & A Truffle

Just 3 days to go before Measure 4 Measure throws open its doors – and we’re crazy with anticipation!  The latest, carefully crafted wine, food and music combination has been agreed…  What better ‘crafted’ wine than one that is actually namedThe Architect‘?  One of the finest winemakers in Australia today, Philip Shaw’s Chardonnay really is a piece of architectural wine perfection.

We’ve paired this wine with a wild mushroom risotto, itself dosed with a generous topping of truffle.  Together, this will be quite a humdinger of a flavour sensation.  And so our choice of music is too…. Antonin Dvorak’s ‘American’ – we think the pairing is inspired and we hope you do too!

Join us this Friday 19th October to Wimbledon Library (next door to the train station) and experience the entire wine and music discovery for yourself.  Details and tickets HERE>

English Wine, Elgar and Smoked Salmon

Our latest event (Measure For Measure, Fri 19th Oct, Wimbledon)  is looming large and these last few days, we’ve been putting the finishing touches on our wine, food and music combinations.  We thought we’d give you a sneak preview…

One of England’s greatest composers, Edward Elgar, comes together with one of England’s greatest wine estates, Davenport Vineyards, the latter farming organically in Kent and Sussex.  This sensational wine was judged to be ‘the holy grail of English still white wine’ (jancisrobinson.com, June 2018).  And if that isn’t enough, we’re show-casing it with a delicious salmon mousse canape to set your tastebuds alight.

Come and join us for this extravaganza of fine music, fine wine and find food – you’d be foolish not to!

Friday 19th Oct – 7.30pm Wimbledon Arts Space, Wimbledon Library, SW19

A few months ago, we were approached by the Wimbledon based Jigsaw Players.   Unbeknownst to us, this group of highly talented musicians had discovered Hannibal Brown’s quarterly wine and food evening extravaganzas – and by all accounts, they’d been blown away! 

Well, we too were blown away – could this be fame at last for lil’ ol’ HB?  We already knew how much our guests enjoyed our evening events – always a relaxed atmosphere, always plenty of wines to taste and always delicious canape pairings on offer.  But how pleased we were when the Jigsaw folk asked us to consider putting on a joint event with them.  “What did you say?  Pair our wines with your great musical performances?  We’d love to!”

And so it has been that for the last few months, HB and Jigsaw have brought together their favourite wines and combined them with their favourite music classics… “Mozart and Merlot?  Really?”  Yes, really!  Next Friday 19th October, we’ll be at the new Merton Arts Space (Wimbledon Library) from 7.15pm to present the first ‘harmonious pairing’ of wine and music.  The Jigsaw Players have one objective – to make music accessible to all.  So as always, this event will be relaxed, entertaining, with plenty of opportunity to kick back (even tap your toes!) and enjoy good wine, good company and listen to our world-class friends, The Jigsaw Players.

Tickets are available at £30 and can be purchased HERE>  Any questions, give us a call on 020 3876 8008.  This is a first – don’t miss it!
