François Matton returns to Ireland a year after I met him here first (see the interview here to find out more about the Château and the wines). Who is he? The proprietor of Château Minuty in Provence and on Thursday 26th April he’ll be presenting a wine dinner in West Restaurant at The Twelve.

Beginning with a reception at 7.30 p.m. with canapés, there follows a five-course wine dinner designed by West’s chefs and sommeliers to celebrate and showcase the Château Minuty wines.

François Matton will introduce his wines, including some of the reds, whites and famous rosé wines that grace the wine lists of Mitchelin restaurants in 55 countries, along with the majority of gastronomic restaurants in the South of France.

When, how much etc.

Thursday 26th April, from 7.30pm

The dinner costs €70 per person, inclusive of wines with an offer to spend the night at The Twelve and start the next day with a great breakfast for just €40 more per person sharing.

That’s €110 all in, not a bad way to spend an evening.

You can book online directly with The Twelve.
