This March will see the launch of Fischer’s The Wine Room at Baslow Hall. Previously known as The Study, a traditional private dining room, the venue will be turned into a contemporary and sophisticated space where guests can allow themselves to enjoy the pleasure of fine food and wine.
The intention behind the creation of The Wine Room was to enhance the overall eating and drinking experience. It will be the perfect environment in which Fischer can showcase its range and diversity of wines from all over the world, complementing the flavours with their award-winning cuisine.
Local architects Bluecarrot have designed and built the room, which features a temperature controlled ‘wine wall’ and an interior lavished with traditional Georgian wall panelling, finished in blue teal. The deep blue that covers the entire room, including the ceiling, gives an elegant, yet moody and intimate atmosphere.
To celebrate the creation of The Wine Room, a series of tasting events have been planned over the coming months, including ‘Meet the Maker’, which will give visitors the opportunity to meet suppliers and see the growers so that they can learn about wines from both famous and lesser-known vineyards.
The Wine Room will be opened for lunch and dinner for up to 12 guests. The Seasonal Tasting Menu that made Fischer so well-known can be accompanied by a selection of wines chosen to complement and enhance the flavours.
“I have always loved good wine, but it was only when I met the late John Wynne of the Epworth Tap (a famous wine bar near Doncaster) around 35 years ago that I really began to develop my wine pallet. John’s knowledge of wine and his wine bar were famous in the North and further afield. John introduced me to many new aromas and flavours and helped me to appreciate the subtle qualities of wine. I have been learning ever since and still feel I know little, but my passion for learning and discovering is as fresh as ever and I love to share that with others,” said Max Fischer, the Owner of Fischer’s at Baslow Hall.
