If you’ve yet to experience this one-of-a-kind pub just brimming with character, there’s no better time than next month, when co-owners Tom Conway, of Nobu, Criterion on Piccadilly and The Potting Shed fame, and sommelier extraordinaire Simon Willson-White, formally of The Ivy and the Ritz, will be welcoming the genius behind BLANKbottle, Pieter H. Walser, through its welcoming doors for the first of many planned international food and wine taster evenings.

Taking place on May 21st at 7pm and focusing on South African wines, for just £60 per person you’ll be treated to three incredible courses, along with canapés, pre-drinks, and an exciting array of South African wines specially selected to match each course. Making the most of the very best locally sourced, seasonal, and sustainable ingredients and using every part of the animal with a genuine ‘field to fork’ ethic, the exact menu is currently top secret, but expect some exceptional dishes prepared for you by Head Chef Tom Conway.

Pieter H. Walser

Flying in all the way from South Africa, Pieter H. Walser is considered one of the most inventive, energetic and productive winemakers in the Western Cape, producing over 30 cuvees a year, each with their own unique story and presented in a “blank” bottle, with no mention of varietal and only an artistic interpretation of what’s inside on the bottle. Pieter believes it’s the stories behind these wines that give you the best insight into the wine he produces. As he puts it, “life is all about the stories you have to tell, and we all have ours to tell. Clothes maketh not the man; judge my wines on what’s in the bottle, not the varietal on the label”.

Bringing an exciting slice of South Africa to Chedworth for one evening only, if you’re a foodie and a wine connoisseur, there’s no better way to celebrate the start of summer than with an unforgettable dining experience at The Seven Tuns.
