POSTPONED - Saturday Cheese and Wine Matching afternoon
Due to the ongoing situation regarding COVID-19, and particularly in the light of the government advice on March 16th regarding the need to avoid non-essential contact, we’ve taken the difficult decision to postpone all tastings that are taking place before the last week in April 2020.
If you have booking on this tasting, an email with your options has been sent to the person who made the original reservation. Any queries, please contact us. We are always happy to help at this difficult time.
Love Cheese? Love Wine? Then why not come along to our cheese and wine matching afternoon in Manchester city centre and learn more about the best cheese and wine pairings to enjoy at home.
We all know the classic combination of Port and Stilton but what other pairings work together? We shall be exploring a range of delicious cheeses and matching them with some classic wines from around the globe. We shall also talk about food and wine matching more generally, and you'll pick up some really good tips to take away and practice at home.
On the evening we will try six different cheese and wine combinations, and while they will vary a bit from one event to another they will include at least some of the following:
- Classic Gruyere with a Pinot Noir
- Pié d’Angloys with a Brut Champagne or Crémant
- Manchego with an Albariño
- Crumbly Lancashire with a Chardonnay
- West Country Cheddar with a Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot blend
- Mature Blue cheese with Sémillon
Perfect for foodies and lots to try!
Full tasting notes of both the cheese and the wine provided.
