Brighton resident and fine wine consultant David Wainwright has established a series of producer-focused fine wine dinners with all proceeds going to the Pebbles Project ( in South Africa.

On 23 November, David will be hosting a dinner at The Square with Paul Draper of Ridge Vineyards. David describes it as ” THE event of the year and is a once in a life-time event that Paul Draper, Ridge’s winemaker since 1969, is flying over to London to host.”

There will be, astonishingly, over 120 wines to taste that evening. “The wines have never been released in the UK and most are winery only releases, some only made in a single year,” says David. ” These are not only very rare but are sublime examples of Paul Draper’s masterful talent as one of the world’s leading winemakers.”

The Pebble Project’s purpose is to enrich the lives of disadvantaged children who have special educational needs, especially those whose lives are affected by alcohol, by providing support and training to local wine farm and township créches and establishing after-school provision for older children living in the Winelands.

Tickets cost £295. For all enquiries and bookings, please contact David Wainwright at
