A heads up for a remarkable charity wine dinner in aid of Pebbles, the South African childrens’ charity with a strong connection to the wine trade, to be held in the cellars of Berry Bros & Rudd on 9th September.
It is being organized by Keith Prothero, who has donated all the wines. This means that the vast majority of the proceeds from this dinner will go straight to the charity.
