This summer, Rathfinny Wine Estate is partnering with Native at Browns in Mayfair to offer guests an al fresco dining destination for Sussex Sparkling wine and small plates in the luxury London retailer’s secluded courtyard. Launching on Tuesday 30 May, the Rathfinny Garden Menu features a selection of Native’s signature small plates, expertly paired with Rathfinny sparkling wines.
Rathfinny recently achieved B Corp status, becoming the first grower-producer of sparkling wine in the world to do so, and Native is perfectly aligned in its ethos, putting sustainability at the forefront, and championing British produce and craftmanship in everything they do.
The courtyard of Native at Browns is a secret garden in the heart of Mayfair, with an abundance of foliage, trees and flowers that make it a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city.
The Rathfinny Garden Menu showcases locally produced and foraged British ingredients in dishes including Potato Waffle with Chicken Liver Parfait & Sussex Apple paired with Rathfinny’s house sparkling wine, 2018 Classic Cuvée. A summer favourite, the 2018 Rosé is matched with Vadouvan Carrot Hotdog, Hay Ash Honey & Curry Mayo. Produced solely from Chardonnay grapes, the elegant 2018 Blanc de Blancs is a divine pair for salty sea flavours and will be matched with Cuttlefish Calamari, Confit Garlic & Alexander Chilli Oil. With a wonderful blend of predominantly Pinot Noir with hints of Pinot Meunier, the 2018 Blanc de Noirs will evoke umami flavours within a Regenerative Steak Tartare, Smoked Egg Yolk, Wasabi Flower. Further nibbles include Native’s WildFarmed Focaccia with Confit Garlic Oil; La Latteria Burrata with Miso Bagna Cauda and Nutbourne Tomatoes, Sussex Riccotta Salata with Salsa Verde.
For the summer, all Rathfinny wines will be available by the glass and by the bottle in the Courtyard at Native at Browns. Guests can also opt for magnums of the 2017 Classic Cuvée and 2017 Rosé Brut – perfect for summer festivities with larger groups.
