Autumn Cheese and Wine
September 28 at 19:00 - 21:00£70
Autumn is the time to celebrate a successful harvest. As the nights draw in it is a great opportunity to rediscover the joys of more substantial wines. With colder weather, rich, golden whites and powerful, juicy reds suddenly seem appropriate. Halloween, Bonfire Night, and Thanksgiving all demand cheeses and wines to accompany mellow autumnal flavours. This is the perfect time to celebrate British territorial cheeses in all their diversity.
This tasting is designed to serve as a light meal and includes a cheese plate of 6-8 cheeses as well as bread, crackers and accompaniments. Samples of 4-6 appropriate beverage pairings will also be offered. As alcohol is served, all attendees must be over 18 years of age.
