WINE MATCHING AT CINNAMON CLUB
Love fine Indian food but not sure how to pair it with wine? Fear not: one of London’s finest Asian restaurants is putting on a five course banquet with wines matched – somewhat unusually – from the Australia’s oldest family- owned winery Yalumba.

Exciting pairings will include tandoori king prawn with mace and cardamom paired with an Eden Valley riesling, and pan-seared turbot in tomato and lemon sauce paired with a 2008 Viognier. 8 Oct, £90 including all wines. Booking is essential. To reserve your place, call The Cinnamon Club on 020 7222 2555.

FIRST EVER FINE WINE FAIR
The first ever Fine Wine fair will be held in Chelsea early next month, featuring the finest exhibitors from the new and old worlds.

The Bordeaux Wine Council will also be in situ. In addition to the opportunity to try hundreds of wines, there will be gourmet Spanish hams, luxurious Italian chocolates and more fine food. Fair from 15-17 Oct, tickets priced from £20. At the Old Town Hall, Kings Road, Chelsea. To book, go to www.finewinefair.org.
