French and Italian Cheese and Wine Matching Evening

French and Italian Cheese and Wine Matching Evening

France and Italy are both nations that love food, and wine of course! On this fantastic Cheese and Wine tasting evening we will try some of the very best combinations of French and Italian cheese and wine.

At this tasting we will give you the keys to understanding why things that ‘grow together go together’!

The next time you go shopping for wine or cheese you will understand the regions and how this effects the flavours you will encounter inside the bottle or on your plate. There is more to French cheese than brie and camembert and more to Italian cheese than mozzarella and parmigiano! We will be looking at soft, blue and pressed cheeses, and highlight some of the established principles of food and wine pairing. 

Some of the best Italian wines and cheeses still coming from the big three regions – Tuscany, Piedmont and Veneto where famous name wines such as Barolo, Amarone and Chianti are produced with cheese such as Pecorino, Gorgonzola and Taleggio.

We'll taste wines made from varying grape varieties from both countries in differing styles matching them with some delicious regional cheeses, Its sure to be a fascinating evening and perfect for any foodie!
