Vegetarian Food & Vegetarian Wine Matching Workshop (WINCHESTER)
Are you aware that only 25% of all wines are actually suitable for vegetarians? Do you know why? Have you ever wondered what goes well with vegetarian food? - Well, this is the tasting for you!
Do you know what was really inside of your bottle of wine? Have you noticed that there is no information on its contents on the label? This is because there are dozens of additives allowed in its production: sugars, sulphites, preservatives, colour an flavour adjustment agents and more. They trigger allergic reactions, headaches and other ill effects. During this tasting, we shall see what terms such as 'organic', 'vegan', 'biodynamic', 'natural' wine actually mean ... to your health! A very surprising and eye-opening tasting ...
The evening is also aimed at demonstrating which vegetarian-friendly wines go well with different types of vegetarian food. Our detailed food and wine matching workshop will help you understand which wines to pair with a wide variety of vegetarian dishes as well as desserts and cheese ;-)
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 shall discuss vegetables (but also fish for all the pescatarians out there), and meat-replacements (such as quorn and tofu) and learn how to pair them successfully with wine. We shall then put the theory into practice and pair our carefully-selected nibbles with our selected vegetarian-friendly wines.
After the workshop you will have a good basis of knowledge that will help you combine wines with food and enhance your eating pleasure! All the tasting food & wine is included in the price.
All tastings include: 5 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, PowerPoint presentation, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of ISO professional tastings glasses AND platters of vegetarian food and cheese.
