hardysHere at Hot Dinners we're rather partial to a nice glass of Chardonnay so this two day wine and cheese pop-up with Hardy's and Alex James sounds like it might be worth heading down to.

The 1853 Club, a pop-up wine bar experience by Hardys wine, opens its doors in London over the coming bank holiday for just two days only and they've enlisted celebrity cheese maker Alex James to help on the food front.

It's timed to coincide with International Chardonnay Day on 23rd May 2014. For £12.50 you'll get a glass of sparkling Chardonnay on arrival, an half hour tasting session hosted by wine experts, Miss Bouquet and Winebird of three Chardonnays with Alex James’ matching award-winning artisan cheeses, plus a wine token to redeem in the bar post-tasting for a chilled glass of your choice.

If you'd rather skip the tasting you can just pick from the range of Hardy's Chardonnays on offer - including their award-winning Eileen Hardy Chardonnay or try a wine tasting paddle with matching cheeses.

The 1853 Club will be at No. 5 Great Newport Street, WC2H 7HY from 23-24 May and open 4pm-11pm. Entry is free. To book a tasting session go to
