Where winemakers dine: Lenz Moser

Lenz Moser, chief winemaker of China’s Chateau Changyu-Moser XV, praises Stefan Neumann MS and his team at Dinner by Heston and reveals why London is “the wine and food capital of the world”.

1. What is your favourite restaurant in London?

I have three favourites; Dinner – at the Mandarin Oriental – Stefan (Neumann MS) and his team are just amazing, ditto the food; China Tang, Igor must be one of the best hosts of any restaurant I know – you come in and he makes you feel immediately at home; and Sexy Fish, such a cool vibe and a great team. I am eternally grateful to them for having helped us make our white Cabernet such a big success – one of their top selling wines by the glass. ‘

2. Where / what is your favourite wine offering in London and what would be your go-to first glass of wine when you get there?

I’m really keen to try out Noble Rot and I would probably go for whatever the sommelier recommends. It’s best way to discover new things and latest trends!

3. How does London compare to other big global cities in terms of the wine lists you find there?

London is the wine and food capital of the world – if it is not here it does exist! The variety and depth, the rate of innovation is unrivalled – and given the quality you get, it is not super expensive.

*Last year, Dinner by Heston was placed 17th in Wine List Confidential’s top 100 restaurants in London for wine. 

Wine List Confidential, brought to you by the drinks business, is the first platform to rank London’s restaurants on the strength of their wine list alone, providing a comprehensive guide to the best restaurants in the capital for wine lovers.

Restaurants are graded on a 100-point scale based on five criteria: size, value, service, range and originality.

* Please note that scores for the next edition of Wine List Confidential will be published in May 2019.
