Luxury Covent Garden hotel NoMad London has announced a series of dinners showcasing some of the world’s best vineyards, with pairings curated by wine director Bella Babbit.
The inaugural dinner, on 8 February, will be hosted by Vivien Gay from Napa Valley’s Silver Oak. Guests will be slurping and swirling their way through six wines from the Silver Oak family, which also includes Twomey, Timeless Napa Valley and Alexander Valley.
Highlights will include the Timeless Napa Valley Proprietary Red (2018 vintage), and a 2012 Silver Oak Alexander Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
But great wine demands good food, and the guests will be treated to a decadent eight-course menu celebrating the most luxurious of ingredients, including caviar potato rosti with bonito crème fraiche, and black truffle risotto with parmesan, mascarpone and butter.
Speaking about this new series of dinners, Babbit, who previously worked at The Clove Club, Luca and The Laughing Heart before joing NoMad in 2021, said: “We can’t wait to bring NoMad’s wine programme to life with this series, and introduce our guests to our favourite wine producers from around the world, starting with Silver Oak…In the last year, we’ve seen guests express an amplified interest in wine and the people behind the bottles, so this series is a natural progression for us.”
