Events


Sign up for priority invitations to our monthly Magnum Club dinners held in the magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place. Each event is hosted by Winemakers themselves, Chateau Owners, and some of the the UK’s top Masters of Wine.

The Crypt at St Etheldreda’s has been hosting celebrity parties in the heart of London ever since King Henry V111 held his three-day wedding feast there in 1531. Today The Crypt offers the same superb food, wine and service as the legendary Bleeding Heart French Restaurant.

Additionally, we are able to organise bespoke wine tastings and wine dinners for corporate and private events.

If you would like to receive invitations to our upcoming dinners, e-mail: Marta@bleedingheart.co.uk

Join us for the Battle of The Antipodean Superstars on Tuesday, September 17th


Trinity Hill’s Homage Syrah is acknowledged as New Zealand’s Number 1 Syrah, but you might raise your eyebrows at its counterpart from across the Tasman – Eligo Shiraz from John Duval Wines in the Barossa – until you learn that for 16 years John was the man who made Australia’s most famous red wine, Penfold’s Grange.

On Tuesday, September 17th, Trinity Hill’s chief winemaker, Warren Gibson, will pit three of his wines, including the 2015 Homage (96 points from James Suckling) against three of John Duval’s including the 2015 Eligo, an old vine Shiraz (94 points) made only in exceptional years. John’s wines will be presented by his son, Tim.

There’ll also be a Marsanne – Viognier 2017 from Hawkes Bay up against a Marsanne-Rousanne-Viognier 2017 from the Barossa Valley and two great reds, both poured from Magnums, with the cheese course: Trinity Hill’s The Gimblett 2015 which boasts all the Bordeaux varietals and John Duval’s Plexus Shiraz-Mourvedre-Grenache.

We’ll be welcomed with one of NZ’s most elegant Sauvignons, close with a terrific little Australian dessert wine, a Late Harvest Reisling and feast on a five-course menu from our chef Julian Marshall in the magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place.

The evening, which starts with aperitifs at 7pm, will cost £120 per head including eight wines, five courses, water, coffee and chocolates, service and VAT. See below for menu and wines.
