Dear Friend of Glovers Alley,

Welcome to the first of our Glovers Alley newsletters.

It’s certainly been a busy few months since we opened in February and we have lots of exciting news and events coming up over the summer which we’d like to tell you about…

A car parking ticket will be validated at the front desk of the Fitzwilliam hotel with a valid receipt from Grom the Pre-Theatre menu.

Costing €145 per person, the experience includes three hours in the kitchen with Andy and his team, a four-course lunch with Champagne and wine pairings, and a goodie bag to take home, including our signature bread (made that morning).

An Evening of Fine Wine And Food With Winemaker Luca de Marchi


Exuberant winemaker and raconteur, Luca de Marchi, of Isole e Olena in Tuscany and Castello Sperino in Piemonte, is hosting an intimate dinner at Glovers Alley, in association with Liberty Wines, on Wednesday 6th June (7pm). Luca will be showcasing a selection of his fine wines which will be served with a bespoke menu created by Chef Patron Andy McFadden.

From Luca’s family home in Chianti, his father and renowned winemaker, Paulo de Marchi, has spearheaded a revolution that has shown the world just how good varietal Sangiovese can be with Isole e Olena ‘Cepparello’.  Luca is now producing Nebbiolo to rival the very best wines of Barolo.
