2 hour class
On this evening, you will be exploring a range of delicious cheeses and matching them with some classic wines from around the globe. Your host will also talk about food and wine matching more generally, and you'll pick up some great tips to take away and practice at home. During the tasting, you will try 6 different cheese and wine combinations, and while they will vary slightly from one event to another, and example of the range tasted on an evening is as follows:
- Delice de Bourgogne (triple soft cheese) with a delicious Champagne
- Crottin de Chavignol (goats cheese) with a fresh Sauvignon Blanc
- Taleggio (soft wash-rind cow's cheese) with a complex Nebbiolo
- Cashel Blue (Irish blue cheese) with a layered sweet wine
- Aged Comte with an oaked powerful Chardonnay
- Mature Cheddar with a classic Bordeaux/Bordeaux Style red
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.
