  • As part of the Cork Oyster Festival 2018, CLASSICdrinks paired some amazing wine for each course of a charity dinner in aid of RNLI.

    The gala dinner was part of the Gourmet Food Trail 2018.  Each dinner course was prepared by a celebrity chef.

    Roberto Silva from Via wines spoke both at the opening Launch on Friday night and at the Black Tie Dinner hosted by The Metropole Hotel Cork Saturday evening.

    Beginning the evening with a sparkling drinks reception and ending with a dance to the Roaring Forties sums up the delight CLASSICdrinks had in once again, taking park in the Cork Oyser Festival.
