Be ready for Christmas! At this special pre-Christmas tasting, sample 7 different cheese and wine combinations particularly popular over Christmas so you can plan to make the most of your festive season!
Cheese is often considered the perfect partner to wine, but it's not always that easy. Often white wine works just as well as red - find out why when we taste 7 wines matching them with 7 top quality cheeses from around the world.
We will try a variety of combinations and at the end of the evening you can vote which works best for your palate - a great way to learn what works for you.
You'll learn the principles of cheese and wine pairing so you can get it right first time when you do it at home.
There will be something for everyone in this special tasting. If you like cheese and you like wine, it is the perfect combination.
