Sommelier’s Table

Many a Michelin-starred meal is made by expertly matched wine. That’s why, at Hélène Darroze at The Connaught, we shift focus to the art of the sommelier. This exclusive experience for you and your guests reveals the passion and expertise of chef and sommelier – and the delicate balancing act between food and wine.

It all takes place in our atmospheric limestone wine cellar, at the foundations of The Connaught. A fascinating discovery in itself, the cellar contains 2,500 bins with around 15,000 bottles of wine, including several private collections from outstanding producers, exclusive to The Connaught.

You are invited to discuss your wines with the sommelier in advance. Then take a seat to savour a memorable lunch or dinner prepared by Hélène Darroze, with dishes devised to match the wines. It’s our own special take on a Chef’s Table, and a perfect conversation-opener for a special event or business meeting.

We offer a choice of three different Sommelier’s Table experiences: Lunch, Bespoke and Krug Lunch/Dinner.
