Cheese & Wine Pairing Workshop (ONLINE TASTING)
A new era is dawning for online education! Universities and businesses are going virtual and so is your favourite wine school - fancy joining us? (What else are you going to do while stuck indoors?)
At these online classes we will be creating a shared tasting experience and educating in our typical fun way with plenty of opportunity to ask questions. All sessions will be recorded and if you can't attend at the last minute just let us know so you can go through the event at your convenience later.
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 ... and wines!
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!
I would recommend buying in advance: 1 bottle of off-dry Chenin Blanc (from the Loire Valley if you can, from Vouvray for example, but any will do) and 1 bottle of Bordeaux red (from the amazing 2018 vintage if you can, and any Bordeaux will do), and opening those wines LIVE with us on the night.
For the cheese platter, I would recommend getting: 1 goat cheese log with white rind (from the brand Soignon would be great); 1 extra mature cheddar cheese; 1 Wensleydale with apricots; 1 creamy Philadelphia plus get your peppercorn grinder at hand; some dried figs, some fresh red grapes, some crackers (water biscuits would be best).
Let's bring some wine & cheese fun to your living-room! ;-)
