Boutinot Rhône | The Wine Of The Rhône, France

Boutinot Rhône Sponsor Manchester Gala Dinner


Boutinot Rhône have teamed up with the Manchester Food and Drink Festival as wine sponsors of the MFDF Gala Dinner.

Held this coming Monday (10th October) at the newly refurbished Palace Hotel, the dinner will celebrate the best of Manchester’s restaurants. Two wines from Boutinot Rhône’s Fide et Arte range – La Fleur Solitaire, Côtes du Rhône Blanc 2015 and Les Coteaux, Côtes du Rhône Villages 2013 – will be served to 400 guests to complement the Gala Dinner menu devised by Steve Wilson and Paul Speakman. 

Following the dinner, the winners of 17 awards will be revealed, including a new award sponsored by Boutinot Rhône. The ‘Casual Restaurant of the Year’ which will recognize the hard work and skill which goes into creating a great dining experience at many of Manchester’s more relaxed restaurants.

Commenting on the tie-up Boutinot’s Scott White said “We’re delighted to be supporting the ‘Casual Restaurant of the Year’ and I wish the nominees the best of luck. It takes as much pride, effort and expertise to create an excellent dining experience in a casual restaurant, where budgets are tighter, as it does in a finer restaurant. This struck a chord with us because we put the same amount of effort, skill and passion into making the premium wines our Boutinot Rhône range, like La Côte Sauvage, Côtes du Rhône Villages Cairanne, as we do our core wines such as Les Coteaux and La Fleur Solitaire.”

Only grapes from exceptional vineyards are selected for ‘La Fleur Solitaire’ and ‘Les Coteaux’ which are made at Domaine Boutinot, Cairanne in France’s Côtes du Rhône, using traditional winemaking methods.

Both ‘La Fleur Solitaire’ and ‘Les Coteaux’ are made at Domaine Boutinot, Cairanne in France’s Côtes du Rhône using only the highest quality grapes and traditional winemaking methods. The result is an exceptional pair of wines which show the Cotes du Rhône at it’s very best and confirm why the region is renowned for producing ‘food friendly’ wines.
