Event Description

After two years of sell out successes Newcastle Wine School is delighted to once again host a Gourmet Wine Evening at beautiful Jesmond Dene House Hotel with celebrity wine expert Joe Wadsack.

Joe “The Whirlwind of Wine” Wadsack is best known for his TV career which includes; Great Wine Walks with Kitty Johnson, Ladette to Lady, Richard and Judy, Saturday Kitchen and as co-host of BBC’s Food and Drink.

Joe’s varied CV also includes RAF Pilot, wine maker in Bordeaux, supermarket wine buyer, Sunday Express wine columnist, consultant and wine judge. But more than anything Joe is a passionate cook, brilliant taster and entertaining host.

Over the course of the evening Joe will guide us through a tasting of 5 boutique wines each expertly matched with a special menu of light, fresh and flavoursome Modern British dishes prepared by Jesmond Dene’s Head Chef, Masterchef the Professionals finalist, Danny Parker and his dedicated team.

The dishes will be a mixture of classic techniques with a contemporary approach. The menu is seasonal and to be confirmed but to give an example of what to expect here is a previous menu; White Onion and Parmesan Veloute, Smoked Yorkshire Ham Terrine, Lamb Rump and to finish, Rhubarb Cheesecake each dish paired with carefully selected wines.

The evening is ideal for corporate entertaining or for individuals who love fine wine and good food and who would like to learn more from one of the Country’s most exuberant wine experts.
