More than 50 guests sampled classic European wines in a tasting conducted by Oliver Haussels, of C&O Wines at Stratstone Aston Martin in Wilmslow.

Private bank Brown Shipley hosted the wine-tasting evening at the prestigious car showroom.

Guests dined from a menu specially created to complement the wines by award-winning chef George Hadjiyiannis, founder of the Stolen Lamb restaurant in Wilmslow.

The event was to celebrate the appointment of Mike Smith and Andy Ramsden as private client directors based in Brown Shipley’s Manchester office.

Mike said: ‘The evening was a great success: a chance to catch up with old friends and enjoy good conversation in a relaxed setting while sampling excellent wines. It was also a good opportunity to appreciate at close quarters cars from an iconic British manufacturer.’
