Wine Lovers' Dinner

On Thursday 6 February 2020, the Head Master of Rugby School and the Chairman of the Governing Body were joined by 80 Rugbeians, Parents and Friends of the School for a splendid Wine Lovers’ Dinner in Fishmongers’ Hall, London.

Hugh Johnson OBE (SF 52-56) spoke about his lifelong love of wine and his part in the founding of Royal Tokaji, which guests were delighted to sample on the night.

This fabulous dinner was held to kick-start our Fine Wine, Spirits and Wine Experience auction which will be held by Sotheby’s later this year.
