Food & Wine Matching Workshop (WINCHESTER)
Have you ever wondered which wine to serve at your dinner party or what goes well with your Sunday lunch? – well this is the tasting for you!
The evening is aimed at demonstrating which wines go well with different types of food. Our detailed food and wine matching workshop will help you understand which wines to pair with a wide variety of meat, poultry, fish, vegetarian dishes as well as desserts and cheeses ... and all types of chocolates!
The matching of food and wine is a matter of personal taste. There are no hard and fast rules, but just remember it is easiest to think of wine as a sauce and match the strength of flavours and weight of the dish with the wine. To learn more, join us on our mouth-watering workshop!
We start with a refreshing, crisp, unoaked Chablis with delicious smoked salmon, and move on to more complex combinations like Riesling or Gewurztraminer with spicy aromatic Asian cuisine. Lighter, elegant reds to accompany simple but tasty rich meat pate, and lovely Clarets matched with plates of charcuterie and cheese. We will conclude with sweet red wines that surprisingly go as well with blue cheeses as they do with chocolates.
Each type of nibble or finger food will be carefully selected to be matched to a very specifically chosen wine in order to enhance your overall wine & food experience. We will be going through the rules behind pairing wine & food successfully, and then putting the theory into practice! How fun!!! ;-)
This workshop will give all the tools you'll ever need to combine wine with food and enhance your eating pleasure on a daily basis!
All the tasting food & wine is included in the price: tasting of 6 wines and at least 8 different types of nibbles.
