celebrated the 150th anniversary of its association with Champagne Bollinger with a dinner for 200 guests at Tate Britain, opposite its offices on London's South Bank.
A pre-dinner tasting included examples of rare wines from all
Mentzendorff's agencies, such as Bollinger RD 1976 and Taylor's Vintage 1948. The meal was accompanied by wines from the Mentzendorff portfolio.
Managing director Andrew Hawes said: "Much has changed since the young Prussian Ludwig Mentzendorff, having established a merchant business in the City of London in 1850, exchanged letters in January 1858 with Jacques Bollinger in their
native German language and began an agency agreement that runs unbroken to this day."
