About Château La Nerthe
Château La Nerthe, located in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region of the Rhone Valley is one of the oldest and most established wineries dating as far back as 1560. With its rich history, it has become a benchmark producer of the region. The ‘terroir’ at La Nerthe is typical of the region with the vines planted along a slope and their roots digging into soils of sandy-clay and the famous ‘galettes’; large, round, well-worn stones originating from the Alps.
The 90 hectares of vines were purchased in 1985 by the Richard family and from there the wine was returned to its former glory. With a focus on organic viticulture, the wines are made with the finesse of both the traditional past and modern expertise with a great attention to detail.
The evening will commence with a cocktail reception at 7:30pm followed by dinner at 8:00pm. This sumptuous six-course wine dinner created especially for the evening is priced at HK$1,280 plus 10% service charge per person. (No discounts or privileges will be applicable for this dinner).
