Cheese & Wine Tasting Evening

About Cheese & Wine Tasting Evening

Spend an informative & relaxing evening with our very own wine expert Neil Ross discovering the magic of wine.

You will taste 6 wines from around the world, showcasing the different styles, aromas and grape varieties out there; the only thing these wines will have in common is that they are BIG!

There will also be a selection of cheeses to tantalize your taste buds in between wines.

Love the wine? Then we have an offsales license for you to purchase a bottle (or two) to take home.

Why learn about wine?

• Confidence buying wine

It can be overwhelming eyeing up the wall of wine in a supermarket or wine merchants. Have you ever bought wine based on a snazzy label or solely because it was reduced from £12 to £6? We all have! How would you like to walk into a wine shop, confidently find your favorite wines, and leave 100% satisfied?

• Improve your ability to taste and smell

Anyone can learn to become a wizz-kid at smelling and tasting wine, all you need is practice. I’ve had people tell me that ‘wine just tastes like wine’ to them and they have a terrible sense of smell etc, only to find themselves saying ‘I really can smell elderflower’ only an hour into the wine tasting. It won’t be long until you are picking out ‘leather’, ‘peaches’ or ‘banana’ too. Like any other muscle this is just a skill to be honed and toned and you’ll be amazed at what you are capable of.

• Extra skills: geography & history

One of the world’s most famous wine writers, Jancis Robinson, describes wine as ‘geography in a bottle’ – so true! You will see so many maps, pictures of soil, weather diagrams that if you aren’t already a geography buff, then you soon will be! Alongside this, you also learn about history of wine regions and the culture that goes along with it.

• Feel good talking about wine

Have you ever loved a wine but had no idea how explain what you loved about it and why? The more you taste various styles and flavours, you’ll feel confident in talking about wine with anyone.

• Make friends through wine

It’s easy to make pals when you have a shared interest. These wine tasting events are designed for you to feel relaxed chatting with everyone in the room and getting to know other wine lovers like yourself.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Cheese & Wine Tasting Evening are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
