Cheese & Wine Pairing Workshop (WINCHESTER)
Pairing cheese with wine should be easy and fun, yet so many people become stressed at the idea of make a wine faux pas. Yet the best part about pairing food with wine is the experimentation and delights at finding a pairing that YOU enjoy. And that's exactly what this pairing workshop is all about ... putting the theory behind food & wine pairing rules into practice and discovering which cheese matches which wine and why!
France, England, Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Greece and Spain are home to some of the world's greatest cheeses and are famous for their diverse and interesting range of regional cheeses.
A selection of these renowned cheeses will be enjoyed in this classic wine & food pairing evening. We will be tasting at least 7 cheese classics including cheddar, Brie, Comte, fresh goat's cheese, blue cheese, etc, then analyse 5 very different wines and learn how to pair wine & cheese to perfection, thanks to a few matching rules. Each cheese will be paired with the perfect wine proving a truly memorable tasting evening. We will also be serving crackers with the cheeses along with some delicious chutney.
Your cheese-obsessed tutor, Cecile Bergart, is a Sommelier and a published Champagne and Wine Educator, a guest champagne expert for Champagne World Magazine, for Channel 4 'Superscrimpers', a regular guest speaker on BBC Radio Solent, as well as being an approved staff educator for Marks and Spencer. Besides, she grew up in France on Brie and Chardonnay, so trust us when we say that you will be in good hands!
This evening is extremely popular and tickets are strictly limited so we advise early booking.
The perfect gift for Cheese and Wine lovers. Can be bought as an open date gift voucher too.
PLEASE NOTE: We can confirm that we have complied with the government’s ‘COVID-19 Secure’ guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19 in the workplace. Due to the constantly changing nature of this guidance and advice, our internal operating practices and protocols will be continuously reviewed and immediately updated. The information detailed here may therefore change without notice. The measures our venues are enforcing will make your experience with us as seamless as possible and will allow us to minimise numbers of people in the venue at any time. Therefore, we will be running at reduced capacity. Only 13 people will ever be allowed to join me at a tasting at St James' Tavern in Winchester, whereas our function room at the Mercure Dolphin Hotel in Southampton is significantly bigger and can accommodate 20 people whilst still enforcing social distancing restrictions.
The situation is fluid still and we are hoping to gradually build back up towards normal proceedings and we are appreciative of your continued patience and support.
