Tim and Dominique’s aim is to find interesting wines from a wide range of wine-growing areas. They are prejudiced in favour of small producers and against big brands and believe that their greatest successes with clients often involves introducing wine lovers to something new.
The Old World sections such as Bordeaux, Burgundy, and Rhône red wines can be relied upon to include quite a few mature bottles that have been cellared at Hambleton for many years.
Wine is my true passion. My greatest enjoyment is to spend time with Aaron finding the perfect food and wine combinations which I can then recommend to our diners. My perfect combination? Merryfield Farm duck with a 2012 Petalos Mencia – why? – so subtle, really Burgundian with hints of blood orange
Recent introduction of the Coravin system has enabled Dominique to offer a wide range of fine wines by the glass. This has worked well for clients who want to drink a little of the best. He usually offers by the glass, using this system, mature Bordeaux and Burgundy (red and white) as well as some top New World Wines and Yquem.
