Ever dreamt of leaving the big City, moving to New Zealand and creating your perfect wine ?

Nigel did exactly this. A fellow  North Londoner, he  left his job in advertising and set up Felton Road wines.

Felton Road are generally regarded as producing some of the finest wines in the world. Their Pinot Noirs  rival the best from Burgundy.

Nigel entertained us with his enthusiasm and wicked sense of humour.

From Pedogenic limestone to playing jazz to the maturing wine a packed house of 35 were entertained until the early hours.

The wines danced and sung , the brilliant food at Season Kitchen perfectly played in tune.
