The Atlantic Hotel hosts the Ultimate Showdown Dinner: Red vs White in a Battle of Wines
22 August 2019
The Atlantic Hotel is pitting Red vs White in the ultimate wine showdown dinner with Master Sommelier and co-founder of H2Vin, Matt Wilkin, on Friday 11th October 2019.
Matt will serve both red and white wine choices with each ‘round’ or course from a special four-course menu created for the evening by The Atlantic’s Executive Chef Will Holland. Will’s inspiration for the evening came from his having first met Matt through boxing, battling him in a white-collar charitable boxing event called the ‘Rumble in the Kitchen’.
Guests will join shared tables for this entertaining evening, enjoying courses including ‘Seafood – The Burgundy 1er Cru Jab’; ‘Poultry – Austria vs Germany Uppercut’; and ‘Red Meat – The Chateauneuf du Pape Haymaker’. The evening will close with ‘Holland vs Wilkin 3 Minute Final Round – The Missing Bout’.
Will Holland said: “Matt is one of the most knowledgeable, inspirational and passionate sommeliers I know, holding the acclaimed status of Master Sommelier. We are honoured to be collaborating with him and feel sure that our guests on the night will benefit greatly from his knowledge. The event may also challenge any preconceptions that diners may hold about which foods red or white wine should be served with.”
Patrick Burke, Owner and Managing Director of The Atlantic Hotel, added: “Our Red vs White dinner is the next in a new series of food and wine events at The Atlantic. Dining out should always be an entertaining experience and the fun concept of matching Red vs White will certainly make for a memorable evening. We look forward to welcoming Matt Wilkin to The Atlantic Hotel and to Jersey for what promises to be a knock out event!”
