Tastings


The Bleeding Heart Magnum Club and The Don Wine Club wine dinners are certainly convivial occasions whether it is a dinner celebrating the wines of the Rhone with Philippe Guigal, or a Masterclass on the esoteric delights of Riesling or Champagne. We have experience in hosting wine dinners and events in the City of London for over 30 years.

If you are a wine lover, you will want to sign up for news of our regular events held in the magical medieval Crypt in Ely Place. 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. Each tasting evening is hosted by Chateau Owners, Winemakers and some of the the UK’s top Masters of Wine.

We are also able to organise bespoke wine tastings and wine dinners for corporate and private events.


Summer’s here – Celebrate  with the Finest French Champagne!

What better way to celebrate Summer than by welcoming back to The Crypt, Bleeding Heart’s very old friend the Vicomte Bernard de la Giraudière, Director of Laurent-Perrier, France’s most prestigious family-owned Champagne house.

On Tuesday July 4th, the Vicomte, together with David Hesketh MW, Managing Director of Laurent-Perrier UK, will host a night of five fine champagnes served with a five-course gourmet dinner.

After sampling Laurent-Perrier Ultra Brut (the slimmer’s favourite), the Vicomte will introduce us to his favourite champagnes, including the wonderful Vintage 2006 en Magnum with the Dorset crab, the stunning Grand Siecle, and of course the very fashionable Laurent-Perrier Rosé.

The cost of the evening, which begins with aperitifs on the Crypt Terrace at 7pm includes all champagnes, wine, mineral water, the five-course dinner plus café et petits fours, Vat and service charge. Astonishingly good value at only £99pp.
