Restaurant group, D&D London, is to list a number of wines from the Baron Phillippe de Rothschild stable as part of a new partnership with its UK distributor,  Waddesdon Wine.

Waddeson Wines, which imports and markets Rothschild wines from DBR Lafite and Baron Philippe de Rothschild, is to work with D&D London and give it access to some of the rarest and most sought after Rothschild wines. The wines will go straight on to the lists of selected D&D restauarants including Coq d'Argent, Launceston Place and Le Pont de la Tour. It will also work with the group's sommeliers and give them the opportunity to purchase parcels of wine that are not distributed through its usual channels. 

To highlight the partnership D&D London will hold a number of special dinners featuring Rothschild wines from around the world. The first of which took place last month, hosted by David Pearson, chief executive of Opus One winery in Napa Valley. Chris Campbell, chief executive of Waddesdon Wine, will host the first event in 2014 on January 28 at New Street Grill.

D&D London will have special access to winemakers from wineries in the Rothschild portfolio for further dinners and tastings throughout the year.

Des Gunewardena, chairman and chief executive of D&D London, said: "The Rothschild name has been one of the biggest in wine for over 150 years, so we are obviously delighted to formalise this partnership and secure some great wines for our restaurants. We also see this as a great opportunity to offer our guests interesting and unusual wines. In the short-term, that has meant dinners with the likes of the legendary Californian winery, Opus One, and there will be many more equally exciting dinners and other collaborations to look forward to in 2014".
