Description

Baron Magazine and Hoi Polloi invite you to a surrealist wine-tasting on The Rooftop of Ace Hotel London, Shoreditch, inspired by TASCHEN's re-release of Salvador Dalí’s mythical 1977 book The Wines of Gala.

The follow-up to Dali’s erotic cookbook Les Diners de Gala, The Wines of Gala presents a Dalínian take on the deep and broad pleasures of the grape. Both books were dedicated to Dalí’s wife and muse Gala (1894–1982), a domineering Russian who hosted lavish dinner parties dedicated to epicurean indulgence.

Led by wine master Demitri of specialist wine importer and distributor Fields Morris & Verdin, get ready to explore the pleasures of taste and pass through ten “divine” Dalí wine categories:

White:

The Wine of Äy: Bollinger Brut, Rosé, Champagne
The Wine of King Minos: 2016 Lyrarakis, Dafni, Crete
2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Beauvenir, Ch. La Nerthe

Red:

The Wine of Shiraz: 2013 Giaconda, Warner Vineyard Shiraz, Victoria
The Wines of California: 2011 Pedregal Cabernet Sauvignon, Ramey, Napa Valley
The Great Red Bordeaux Wines: 2001 Ch. Rauzan-Sègla, Margaux

The tasting will be accompanied by a view of London’s phallic icon, St Mary Axe, and erotic place settings by Keith Boadwee.

Tickets include a copy of The Wines of Gala and a copy of Baroness Magazine. If you want to carry on your tastings in private, discounted rooms are available throughout the evening at Ace Hotel London using promo code PARTY.
