Viña Carmen Announces Partnership With RTÉ Culinary Documentary: ‘Chasing Stars’

Viña Carmen has announced their partnership in the production of a new culinary documentary: ‘Chasing Stars’, which will air on Thursday 28 November 2019 at 22.15 on RTÉ One.

The programme, follows Dublin based Damien Grey, co-founder and head chef of Heron and Grey on his travel and food adventures around the world in his quest to create a brand new restaurant and regain his Michelin star in only six months for new restaurant Liath.

"To achieve a Michelin star is a great achievement, to lose it through the dissolution of one business and then try to regain it again within six months with another restaurant is exceptional," said Terry Pennington, commercial director Europe, Viña Carmen.

The documentary opens on 26 January, 2019 the day that Damien and Andrew (Heron) close the doors on Heron and Grey for the final time.

Following a full refurbishment of the space on March 15th head chef and proprietor Damian Grey (45) opens his restaurant named 'Liath' (Irish for Grey).


‘Chasing Stars’

‘Chasing Stars’ documents Damien’s journey through his food and his food influences, what it takes to make that step up to becoming a Michelin starred restaurant once again and how that differs from how he has previously done things.

Pennington added: ‘Like our Carmen brand, Liath ‘Re-invents the Classics’, taking the best and putting an innovative spin on it in the pursuit of food excellence in the case of Liath and wine for Viña Carmen.

It shows the challenges that face him, his team, his suppliers and his menus all to ensure the future of his restaurant by being awarded a Michelin Star again.
