• Why fear and uncertainty impacts our wellbeing and causes stress

• Why an extended period of isolation with so little human contact is mentally challenging

Rendezvous gives you wings!

What a pleasure it was to host our first event since February.  Our group of 30 socially distanced guests arrived for a party and what a back-drop we gave them!

Things have changed since we last saw you.  There are a whole bunch of rules. Guestlist, check.  Name badge, check.  Heat test, check!  Coats yes, but it’s a rack and the staff aren’t allowed to touch your things.  Kiss Barbara, no.  Kiss Lou, no.  Elbow bump, yes.  Touch anyone, by mistake, no.  Pick up a welcome drink, yes, choose from five tasting tables for a bumper wine tasting lasting two hours, hell yes!

28:50, the luxurious Covent Garden space and sister restaurant to the well-established Marylebone Lane restaurant of the same name. Some thirty wines are available by the glass, bottle and carafe and start at a very wallet-friendly £4.70 for 125ml all served alongside a chic European menu.

28:50’s sommelier Daniel Sanna and the group’s super star Gina Lowen assembled the stars of his wine list and we were treated to tasting tables including:

Kingscote (East Grinstead)/Berne (Provence)

Kingscote Sparkling Brut 2018, Kingscote Sparkling Rosé Brut 2018, Kingscote Chardonnay 2019, Kingscote Silvan Bacchus 2019, Berne Inspiration Berne Espirit Méditerranée

Champagnes & Chateaux

Champagne Canard Duchene Cuvée Leonie N.V and Champagne Canard Duchene Cuvee Leonie Rose.

Château de Candie, Viognier

2019 Vintage, 28:50s own Vineyards at the Chateau de Candie in Chambéry, Savoie, France.


2016 Domaine des Masque, Syrah ‘Exception’

Marvellous Mirabeau

And lastly, our friends Peter, Natalie and Richard from Mirabeau showed up with a show-stopper of a table full of tasting treats including magnums of Mirabeau Pure, Mirabeau Sparkling rose and a tasty drink for those on the move (or perhaps the train or Uber home) rose in a can!

We were treated to what seemed like a never-ending flow of delicious canapes from Head Chef Julien Baris, including mini cheeseburgers, spicy hummus on beetroot crackers, truffle arancini and decadent artichoke tempura with aioli sauce.

The night ended on a high and us all wishing we could have stayed on and on.  As good nights roll this has got to be one of the best!




A lovely time in the Vines

Mirabeau brought some Southern French fun into our homes and gardens with a very special virtual rosé experience. It was lovely seeing you, chairs pulled up, glass of the pink poured, and joining us for an entertaining hour.

Stephen and Jeany Cronk, founders of Mirabeau en Provence, were live from Domain Mirabeau, their sumptuous wine estate tucked away in the heart of Provence. With their good-humoured story about the ups and downs and process of establishing the UK’s most popular rosé brand it was a welcome break from the Lockdown blues.

Podcast – “Divorce Needn’t be Complicated”

While in Covid-lockdown, Rendezvous chatted to The Divorce Surgery. If you or someone close to you needs advice on divorcing the considerate way, read on.

The Divorce Surgery was set up by Samantha Woodham and Harry Gates both family law barristers who were tired of seeing couples fighting in court; left at the end much poorer, emotionally, and financially.

When it comes to divorce it is an emotional roller coaster. One moment you will perceive ‘I’ve got this’ only to feel upside down and have no idea where to turn moments later. The challenge is often not knowing where to begin. Divorce remains shrouded in stigma; associated with acrimony, stress, and huge legal fees. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

If you do want legal advice but are anxious about cost then consider using a fixed-fee, One Couple One Lawyer service. The Divorce Surgery can direct the disclosure process and provide an expert barrister to advise you both together as to what a court would consider fair.
