VINtwined founder, Neil Deacon, cheerfully pruning the vineyard at La Tour de Sainte Hilaire in the Chalonaise
Life is too short for boring wine ...
... that's why we want to show you just how fantastic and varied wine can be. Forget the bulk-buys at your local supermarket, we can show you the very best that the world of wine has to offer. VINtwined founder, Neil Deacon, has made it his mission to find wines that demonstrate the variety and complexity of the worlds wine regions, and spark the culinary imagination within. With our dishes selected to heighten the experience of the wine and vice versa, we ensure the two are VINtwined in perfect marriage.
That's why at our VINtwined dining events you'll be sure to receive amazing and sometimes rare and unusual wines (like the not-yet bottled burgundy from a small vineyard in the Chalonaise that Neil had to spend a morning pruning to taste).
Life is also too short to postpone your dreams ...
Prior to founding VINtwined, Neil earned a PhD at Imperial College London and worked as a big-four strategy consultant in the pharmaceutical industry.
Despite an established career in consultancy since University Neil’s deeper passion, bordering on obsession, has been good wine. While his retirement plan has always been "to open a great wine restaurant”, life’s too short, so why wait? That’s why, in 2016 VINtwined was born.
So here's what we are going to do about it ...
There's a lot of wine out there and we want to showcase as many of the best examples as we can. In our first year of operations we will show these to you through our regional themed pop-up events.
Check out our home page to see what is coming up. Is there a particular region that you think would be fantastic for an event? Chances are we agree but just haven't gotten to it yet. Why don't you drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to tell us which events you want to see and we will see what we can do?
Can't wait that long? Just get a group of friends together and we can arrange a private event, bespoke to your own wine tastes.
