Stay elegant with the tasting...be more continental in your drinking, savour the delicate tastes, colours, smells and appreciate the provenance.
If you're staying in one of our luxury cottages in north Cornwall, BinTwo in Padstow offers two things in abundance – lobster and champagne. Really there is nothing not to like. However take a little time to pick owner Mike’s sommelier brain to discover new, exciting and classic wines that you’ll want to take by the case load home.
Mike’s passion for wine is tangible and your thirst for trying new varietals will be almost unquenchable. From Billecart-Salmon Brut Reserve, elegant yet confident, Bollinger, a richer style of champagne to La Strada, New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc that is creamy, overlaid with oak, gooseberry freshness with caraway notes, to a 2010 Picpoul de Pinet from the Languedoc, a mouth-filling full-bodied , green gold white with quirky lush character. Enjoy a taste of lip smacking Chilean Pinot Noir followed amicably by an uber-smooth Rioja.
Stay elegant with the tasting… be more continental in your drinking, savour the delicate tastes, colours, smells and appreciate the provenance. You can then snugly recount this knowledge at your next supper party (just make sure that you are proffering the correct wine…).
Foodwise it is a small but perfectly formed menu – the focus is fully on the wine. The lobster freshly caught by the local fishing boat and is served simply in a soft brioche roll following the classic Maine lobster roll recipe. There is also British charcuterie and Manchego cheese boards. The best breads, balsamic reductions and sweet, succulent Sicilian Nocellara olives.
Alongside the wine is the coffee – a necessity really with that much vino on offer! Serving up Monmouth coffee with a barista’s expertise you can chase you quaffing with a shot of espresso.
Note that BinTwo has mostly outdoor seating only, it is perfect summer evening territory and autumn cosiness. Also note that BinTwo deliver wine by the case…
