Join us for the 2015 Nurture Lakeland Christmas Lunch on Thursday 3rd December, 12.30 to 3.30pm.

We’re delighted to be able to invite you to wine tasting and a 2 course lunch at Ambleside Park, a John Lewis private hotel at Waterhead, Ambleside. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit this fabulous venue which is usually only accessible to John Lewis employees.

Sam Jary, winemaker and wine merchant with Grapevine The Wine Service Company, will guide us through the tasting, followed by a meal in the Ambleside Park restaurant.

After qualifying with distinction as an Oenologist and Viticulturist at Lincoln University in New Zealand, Sam spent several years working as a winemaker and viticulturist at world-class wine estates throughout Spain, New Zealand, the Northern Rhône and Burgundy. He is now part of the passionate, knowledgeable team at Grapevine The Wine Service Company. Earlier this year Sam chose the wines for Simon Rogan's Taste Cumbria Pop-up Restaurant, and we can't wait to see (and taste!) what he has planned for us at our Christmas Lunch. 

There will be a choice of options including vegetarian, and dietary requirements can be accommodated. Main course will be followed by dessert, and tea or coffee.

We hope you will come and celebrate the festive season with us and meet like-minded businesses. Tickets  cost just £29, please pay in advance to secure your place.

We’d like to thank Andrew Craig-Mair, General Manager of Ambleside Park, and John Lewis for offering this great venue, food and wine tasting at a heavily discounted rate. Any profits will further support our fundraising efforts in Cumbria.

We look forward to seeing you there!
