We can think of no other countries where the quality has risen so dramatically in the last 25 years than Greece and Austria, so where better to start to delve beyond the obvious choices for an evening of wonderful wine and company!
We are delighted to be joined by hosts for the evening Lance Foyster MW and Isabelle Clark from Clark Foyster who have established themselves as one of the leading specialists for both Austrian and Greek wine in the UK.
They will guide us through their handpicked selection of wines, chosen to to complement rather than compete whilst flying the flag for countries.

About the Hosts
Lance Foyster MW
Lance was seven when he first became aware of the existence of wine on family holidays to Portugal. Once he hit 18, there was no holding him back as he set off to work on the harvest in Tavel, where he discovered the romance of the vineyard. He followed his growing passion which eventually led him to the Institute of Masters of Wine in 1991. The next 10 years saw him exploring all areas of the wine trade, before setting up Clark Foyster Wines in 2002.
Clark and Foyster met many years ago in the library at Magdalen College Oxford. When the opportunity came for Lance to take over a small wine business, Isabelle sorted out all the back office work and became increasingly involved as the business grew until she was able to become a full-time member of the wine trade.
After almost 20 years of Clark Foyster Wines, they have established themselves as one of the leading specialist for both Austria and Greece in the UK.
