Annual Dinner – Christian Seely: The man and his wines

Annual Dinner


As you all know, wine is serious business and when producers hit a slump, sometimes an injection of creative vision is in order. The job of Christian Seely is simple – to use the financial resources AXA, of one of the largest insurance providers in the world, to restore the quality and status of these struggling producers. Himself a graduate of Cambridge, Christian Seely returns to present the fruits of his labour from producers as disparate as Château Pichon Longueville Baron (Pichon Baron) (2eme Grand Cru Classe), Quinta do Noval (Porto), and Disznókő (Tokaj). Join us for an unforgettable evening with a master of the trade.
