Virtual Port & Cheese Pairing Workshop (ONLINE TASTING)

Virtual Port & Cheese Pairing Workshop (ONLINE TASTING)

Prepare yourself for an online evening of indulgence on our Port & Cheese Pairing Workshop, LIVE via Zoom.

You will have heard of Port and Stilton as a common combination so now is your chance to find out why this works. Besides, do you know of a better way to spend a cold November evening?! ;-)

You will taste your way through 4 carefully selected ports, while trying 5 different cheeses from the light and crumbly cheeses, to the rich and salty blue cheeses, plus introducing nuts and olives. There will be tried-and-tested pairings and some more unusual, eye-opening ones that will enhance the rich fruity flavours of the ports. This is a mind-blowing experience for your tastebuds ... what fun!

Among the ports you will try are:

  • White Port - never tried it? It's delicious and despite the sweetness it has plenty of acidity.
  • Tawny Port - A good aged tawny is like Christmas in a bottle.
  • Late Bottle Vintage - taking its time in the bottle enjoy the richness from this style.

This will be a relaxed and eye-opening evening ... from the comfort of your own living-room, during which you will learn how Port is made and be surprised by the different styles. Experiment with some of the principles behind matching food to sweet wines like Port.
