A Sensory Delight: Krug Encounters - Rhythm & Ride

The House of Krug presents Krug Encounters 2019, which brings together music, food and champagne for an unforgettable experience.

There are few finer experiences in life than that of savouring a fizzing glass of champagne whilst listening to a beautiful piece of music. Sound enhances one's sense of taste, revealing a range of new dimensions and adding a further layer of pleasure to the experience. It is with this understanding and in this spirit that The House of Krug, one of the world's most renowned champagne houses, has developed the annual Krug Encounters experiences, which celebrate the release of the house's latest Grande Cuvée each year, through a unique combination of incredible food, drink and music.

Honouring the release of the elegant Krug Grande Cuvée 167ème Édition - a blend of 191 wines from 13 different years, Krug returns this September with a new Krug Encounters concept - Rhythm & Ride. On Wednesday 18th September, fortunate guests will be whisked away to a forest in the English countryside for a series of enchanting moments and an immersive sound experience. Multi award-winning RnB singer Neneh Cherry will be curating a lineup of musical performances championing the power of female talent, while Daniel Alt, head chef of renowned London restaurant The Barbary, and his dedicated team, will bring their Barbary Coast-inspired cuisine to life through an expertly curated menu of exotic food and flavoursome spices, all designed to complement the tasting notes of the Krug cuvée. Expect such dishes as the Krubab, a playful homage to Krug consisting of octopus, lamb, beef and aromatic Pata Negra served on smoked pita; grilled figs with manouri cheese and kubbeh kibbeh – a classic Lebanese dish made of bulgar, minced onion, and seared meat marinated in an array of Middle Eastern spices. 

Promising spectacular immersive musical experiences, exquisite food and of course the finest Krug champagne, all encountered in stunning countryside, the day is set to be a true delight for all of the senses, and certainly one to remember. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets, which start from £450.
