Tasting Wine with Madame Ghislaine
Madame Ghislaine de Rouen is many things… a French midwife and wine connoisseur; a sophisticated woman of the world; a little nice, a little naughty. She loves her guests and goes to extraordinary lengths to ensure their comfort and happiness. Join Mme. Ghislane and her quirky helpers for an exclusive look at some carefully selected wines from around the world!
Up to 24 guests per seating will enjoy a fun, witty and educational performance lasting 1 hour 15 minutes. You will taste a sparkling wine, three white wines, three red wines, and a dessert wine. Your tasting experience will be complemented by a plate of fruit, cheese and bread.
Mme. Ghislaine is a very busy woman and will be visiting Sherwood Forest Faire for two weekends only in 2012. She will have two tastings per Saturday and one per Sunday on the following weekends: Mar 9-10 & Mar 23-24. Tickets are $40 before December 31 and $45 after. Purchase now.
According to legend, Robin and his Merry Men would accost wealthy nobles traveling through Sherwood Forest, feast them, and then require a certain amount of largesse on their part in order to pay the feast expenses. Our feast is a five-course meal and all-you-can-drink extravaganza, complete with music, dancing and laughter! Don’t worry; your “largesse” is collected in advance, so you won’t be required to empty your pockets at the end of this entertaining adventure!
Join Robin Hood and the merry folk of Sherwood Forest for a country banquet fit for Kings and outlaws alike! Each feastgoer will enjoy a soup course, several meat & vegetable courses in succession, and a dessert course. Delicious vegetarian options are also available for this feast – and they are so tasty that your omnivorous neighbors may wish they had chosen your menu! (Those who wish to partake of the vegetarian menu must email firstname.lastname@example.org 72 hours in advance of their seating)
Beverage options include soda, water, Thorin’s Viking Mead, Thorin’s Knightly Mead, beer and wine. Our serving staff will work hard to keep your cup from ever running empty!
Robin will host one feast for a maximum of 40 people per seating each Saturday and also on Closing Sunday (Mar 31) from from 12pm-2pm. Tickets are $79 before December 31 and $89 after. Purchase now.
