Loch Lomond Arms Hotel Hosts Exclusive Wine Tasting Evening to Celebrate Matthew Jukes Wine List

The Loch Lomond Arms Hotel in Luss is delighted to announce the creation of a fantastic new wine list by renowned expert Matthew Jukes.

Matthew Jukes said: “I was thrilled to be asked to curate a brand new wine list for the Loch Lomond Arms Hotel -­ I have hand-­picked every single bottle on the basis of sheer deliciousness and stunning value for money. You can drink elite wines from as little as £16 or, if the mood takes you, skyrocket to over one hundred pounds for some of the most legendary bottles ever made. This is the most important wine list I have written in my 30 years in the wine business.”

“My brief was to create the finest short wine list in Scotland and I am thrilled with the results! I have made sure that the new list covers every flavour and grape possible, in a quest to show the modern wine world's finest creations.”

In celebration of the collaboration the hotel is launching a series of wine tasting dinners.

Head Chef Allan McLaughlin has designed a bespoke six-­course tasting menu, with champagne reception, alongside wine expert Matthew Jukes. Matthew will be on hand throughout the evening to guide guests through each wine and food pairing. Diners can enjoy the following menu:
