Burgundy wine producers are helping London’s lonely hearts find romance with the aid of a glass of wine - or two.
Those looking for love are being invited to attend a series of speed-dating events in Porter’s Bar in Soho where they are offered a free glass of Crémant de Bourgogne on arrival, followed by guided tastings of six wines.
Featuring the strapline, ‘Wines from Bourgogne. Share the Pleasure’, the combination of fine wine and romance has proved a “formidable catalyst of conversational and personal exchanges” claims the producers’ group BIVB.
The events are run in conjunction with dating agency Speed Dater.
