Blog du Vin

Has it really been 20 years!? It seems like only yesterday when we opened our very first hotel, Hotel du Vin Winchester, in 1994. 22nd November 2014, marked 20 years to the day when we welcomed our first guests with co-founders Gerard Basset and Robin Hutson at the helm as they turned their vision into a reality.
As we continue to enjoy our partnership with Random House, we are inspired this month by crime novels. Every July, Harrogate plays host to a variety of criminal activity. It can be frightening, gory and shocking but is always entertaining. The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival has become a highlight of the literary calendar and this year looked set to bring the very best of international crime writing to Harrogate.
Here’s to the start of the British social calendar where golden moments abound at Henley, Royal Ascot, Wimbledon and Lord’s stretching across the summer. For big social occasions such as these, or indeed when you’re at home entertaining with an informal Sunday barbecue or a full-on summer party, a great way to lavish your nearest and dearest with bottled splendor is with excellent wines poured from larger format bottles.
There’s really nothing more delicious than the British summertime. Just in time for the warmer, and longer, days, our brilliant chefs at Hotel du Vin have launched a new Al Fresco menu that boasts the best tastes of summer. Fresh, seasonal ingredients – plus our signature wine list and new colourful punches – have been created to be enjoyed, outdoors, with friends and family in each of the 15 historic and characterful properties across the UK.
