Wine Makers’ Dinner : Château Capion

7:30 – 9:45 / 10:00pm

We are very happy to announce the next in our new series of wine tasting events at The Galley


Enjoy an exclusive presentation by Howard Laughton of Château Capion.

Old manuscripts mention the château’s original construction in the 16th century, but most of the records we have today date back to 1873, when the Domaine de Capion was acquired by the Keittinger family.

The Château Capion estate is a 45 hectare vineyard with a unique terroir. 200 metres up the Terrasses du Larzac, the land around its château, winery and wine cellar extends over three broad geological zones, the soils underfoot changing from Montpellier sandstone and clay to limestone gravels and alluvial silts. These habitats, the biodiversity present all around, and the climatic variations at Capion are nuanced in wines that express, in their power and finesse, their provenance.

This exclusive event will feature a range of Languedoc wines from Chateau Capion and a special menu especially created to perfectly accompany them.

Served in the our cellar means limited space, so please book now to avoid disappointment!

£50 per person.

Remembering our
Wine & Dine expert host,
Neil Courtier


This entry isn’t an event, we’re just sharing some very sad news.

We are very sad to hear about the sudden death of our close friend Neil Courtier; the ever popular host of our regular wine tasting events.

I’ve known Neil for nearly 30 years and he supported me and The Galley from the very start. He was a great friend and his wine knowledge was extraordinary. He will be a huge loss to all who knew him. Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time.

Let’s raise a glass to toast the memory of a true friend.
