Henry Butler, owner of Brighton’s oldest independent wine shops Butlers Wine Cellar and Tom Surgey from Ridgeview Wine Estate will once again go head-to-head in a Battle of the Bottles in support of the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital.

Both contenders have chosen three secret wines each and they will endeavour to persuade you that theirs is the best. Over three rounds (white, rosé and red!) you will taste six fantastic wines and cast your vote to decide the victor! A million miles from your standard wine tasting, expect humorous anecdotes, a few innuendos and lots of seriously good wine as these two titans of the wine world collide.

All the wines tasted will be available to purchase after the event with 10% of the sales value being donated to The Friends. This is a great opportunity to support The Friends as well as Butlers Wine Cellar and Ridgeview for generously donating their time in support, and to stock up on a stash of stunning wines to see you through the year!

The Friends of Eastbourne Hospital raise money to support the Eastbourne DGH. This year our Special Project is to raise £500,000 to provide equipment for both the outpatient Urology Investigation Suite (UIS) and an Enhanced Care Unit, which will provide enhanced care for urology and surgical patients, including those who may have had operations using the Da Vinci Robot, purchased by the FoEH in 2015.

DGH Staff and volunteer discounts apply to this event.  Please ask the Friends Office for details on:
