Taking another step to shorten our supply chain we are offering all organisers English wine, see attached picture. The benefits are huge in terms of the significant transport miles incurred in importing continental wines let alone wine from as far away as New Zealand. Furthermore, we are buying directly from vineyards, thereby saving the environmental costs incurred in sending the wine to 3rd party wholesalers and back to ourselves. Initially, we are sourcing our house wine from Dorking (Denbies Vineyard), 27 kilometers to our Central London Venues, this compares to say Bordeaux 1037km or Margaret River Australia 14 500km. We chose this vineyard both because of the quality of its wine but also its strong environmental credentials see HERE, these include, using Bio- Diesel in its tractors, a member of the bat conservancy council, planting some 1500 trees etc.

In February 2020 we widened our wine offering with a rose and a sparkling wine from the Lyme Bay winery, winners of over 70 wine awards at the likes, The International Wine Challenge, the Sommelier Wine Awards, the Decanter World Wine Awards, the International Wine & Spirits Competition and the UKVA Wine Awards.

If you are looking for a sustainable event venue with a huge range of conference rooms & meeting rooms to host your conference/seminar meeting in Central London or the City of London please get in touch, for further details on our environmental credentials see
