On Monday, September 16, the three AA Rosette awarded Benedicts restaurant in Norwich will relocate for one night only to Flint Vineyard, one of the UK's most exciting new wineries, which combines cutting-edge technology with a respect for tradition to produce elegant and refined English wines.

Sat amongst the barrels at Flint, guests will enjoy a four-course menu designed by chef patron, Richard Bainbridge. Dishes have been curated to pair beautifully with each wine chosen personally by Hannah and Ben Witchell, founders of the vineyard.

Dishes will include Cromer crab Norfolk dumplings served in a rich crab sauce, barbecue Dry-Aged dry-aged pork with a beetroot puree, kale and mustard seed sauce, and a white chocolate and pink fizz mousse with a blackberry sorbet.

Wines will be introduced by the winemaker and include the floral and zippy Silex Blanc 2018, the citrus and peppery spiced Bacchus 2018 and the unique English Pinot Noir Précoce 2018, which was aged and fermented in both Burgundian oak barrels and stainless steels to produce a delicate red wine. The Charmat Rosé 2018 is the first of it's kind in England. This sparkling wine is fruit driven with cherry and fruits of the forest will be used in the dessert alongside a glass to accompany it.
