Smoked Salmon | Crab | Canapés
Duck | Trout | Charcuterie
‘You should try Cavendish NV with our Catch of the day tacos or even Grilled chilli squid with Asian salad and miso dressing at Murmur. These vibrant flavours make for a very exciting pairing.’
DUCK: As a pinot-dominant blend, the red berry flavours and notes of spice match beautifully with the sweet, earthiness of the meat whilst the Chardonnay adds finesse and freshness.
Lobster | Summer Pudding | Strawberry
This ‘delicious…tangy palate cleanser’ was a Mimosa-inspired lychee sorbet with hibiscus syrup and a rosé foam.
For those of us that can only ever dream of having Kim’s culinary skills, try this simple Lychee Pavlova.
The simple classic, Strawberries and Cream, is a delightfully fresh and fruity pairing with Fitzrovia Rosé – one of our most popular wines.
Or for an even more British and delicious pairing try, Mary Berry’s Summer Pudding packed full of sweet berry flavours.
BLANC DE BLANCS
Oysters | Lemon Butter | Scallops
‘This pairs beautifully with our Dived scallop, roasted & pickled apricot, samphire and XO sauce. Something special happens when these two things come together.’

LEMON & FISH: Look for a seafood dish that matches the intensity and freshness of this wine. Add lemon butter into the mix and the aromatic and fruity notes will truly sing. Have you tried Blanc de Blancs with Fish and Chips? You really should!
BLANCS DE NOIRS
Mackerel | Duck | Mushrooms
MUSHROOMS – The depth and earthiness beautifully compliments the aromatic red fruit aromas and delicate spice from the Pinot grapes.
Charcuterie | Light Game
CHARCUTERIE – This exceptional oak-aged sparkling wine offers a complimentary buttery texture and fresh, fruity notes to lift the rich, spicy flavours of cured meat.
‘Try it with light shell fish like scallops or clams. Dover sole works particularly well too, as does roast chicken or light game like quail or partridge.
For something sweet, citrus infused crème brulee is a beautiful match.
But for the ultimate culinary experience, serve it with Christmas lunch – by far the best pairing!’
– Simon Roberts, Director of Winemaking, Ridgeview
ROSÉ DE NOIRS
Wild Strawberries | Smoked Salmon | Red Berries
WILD STRAWBERRIES: The creamy palatte of peach, cherry and spice compliments the sweetness of ripe strawberries.
‘I love the versatility of this wine when it comes to food. Being just the pinots and with the extraction of the delicate colour from the skins in the press, it can pair beautifully with the more robust flavours of roasted lamb, even Thai food and yet goes equally well with more delicately flavoured seafood dishes.
This wine is not just an aperitif, it has been made with food in mind.’
– Tamara Roberts, CEO of Ridgeview
