The evening focuses on Malbec, but head chef Aiden will explain how this popular grape can be paired with more than just steak

Aiden will also be on hand to talk about the wines and how they complement his specially created tasting menu. The evening focuses on Malbec, but Aiden will explain how this popular grape can be paired with more than just steak. As well as Malbec, you’ll have the chance to enjoy two more reds, Tannat and a Cabernet/Malbec blend, plus a Torrontes white wine. You’ll also be treated to a glass of Ferghettina Extra Brut fizz when you arrive for the evening.

John Clossick, sales and events manager at restaurant MCR, said: “At restaurant MCR we’re lucky to work with expert producers in every field and I’m sure the diners will enjoy trying these interesting wines we have for our first tasting event, all paired with Aiden’s specially designed menu.”
