Fischer’s are delighted to announce the launch of The Wine Room at Baslow Hall in early March 2018. Previously The Study, a traditional private dining room in keeping with the Manor House style, The Wine Room will be transformed into a contemporary and sophisticated space where guests can indulge their passion for fine food and wine.

A series of tasting events are planned over the coming months. Including; Meet the Maker, when guests can meet suppliers along with visiting growers to learn about wines from both famous and lesser-known vineyards. The Tastings will be accompanied by supper.

Max Fischer has been a lover of wine all his life and along with Fischer’s General Manager and Sommelier, John Cooper, curates the list, from the very finest old established wines and exciting new discoveries.
Quote from Max Fischer, Owner, Fischer’s at Baslow Hall:
“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.”
