Event Description

At this special pre-Christmas tasting, sample 6 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 6 wines matching them with 6 top quality cheeses from around the world.

As a Christmas treat, you will also receive a complementary glass of fizz upon arrival and wine prizes for our blind tasting game!

You'll learn the principles of cheese and wine pairing so you can get it right first time when you do it at home.

Some examples of the pairings we may could explore are:

  • Beautiful, rich creamy Goat's Cheese paired with a classic Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc with the freshness and acidity to cut through the creamy cheese.
  • The festive classic Wensleydale and Cranberry paired with a lightly oaked Australian Chardonnay with its own rich yet subtle character.
  • How about a nutty and creamy Comte from the French/Swiss boarder paired with a French Pinot Noir that is low in tannin as not to overpower the cheese?
  • We will have a vintage Cornish Cove Cheddar with a powerful yet elegant Cabernet Sauvingnon/Merlot blend.
  • And no Christmas cheese board is complete without the robust flavours of Stilton, complemented by the equally rich yet sweet, LBV Port.

Biscuits for cheese are included as well as details of where to source the wines locally if you want to get your hands on pairings you enjoy the most.
