France is rightly renowned for both wine cheese, so we put them together to offer you this very popular tasting event. Six delicious French wines (three white and three red) are paired with a très generous selection of regional cheeses. You’ll learn how both affect the taste of each other and gain a deeper understanding of the art of food and wine matching.
Your host for this event will be John Callow – a highly qualified and experienced wine expert who loves sharing his knowledge and passion for wine. And cheese!
Really exceeded expectations. John was knowledgeable and interesting and answered all questions without being elitist or assuming knowledge. His passion for wine is infectious- will 100% go back again for another evening.
Really enjoyed this. Friendly, unpretentious, extremely knowledgeable, great night had by all. Liked that the wines and cheeses were all accessible and not exclusive, John clearly knows his stuff and his passion shines through, good stuff ?
We had a great evening tasting french wines with John. He is extremely knowledgeable but also made the evening really fun. We learnt some really useful tips, which we’re looking forward to putting into practice! The very generous cheese and meat platters were an unexpected bonus.
John doesn’t sell wine himself, so there is no pressure to buy wine at the end of the evening (it’s not an option!), and you can concentrate on learning and enjoying the wine!
If you like wine and you like cheese, you’re in the right place! This event combines the two: six carefully chosen French wines are matched with wonderful cheeses from around the country. You’ll learn about terroir, about the origins of each wine, about how the cheeses are made and you’ll learn to find what you love. This is a great experience to do with friends and family as you can take what you learn and develop it at home together.
Everything is organised for you and set up before your arrival – you simply turn up. Wine, cheese, nibbles… glasses, notes, pencils… all laid out so you can relax and enjoy yourselves. This event also makes a great gift should you want to get Northern Wine School vouchers for someone special.
Please note: we do not sell wine; however, you will be given tasting notes afterwards should you want to source the wine for yourself.
