French Cheese and Wine Tasting Manchester

French Cheese and Wine Tasting Manchester

Nothing says "Joie de Vivre" like French wine and cheese. At our new cheese and wine tasting Manchester event you can enjoy a taste of this heavenly combination.

Rich cheese and wine history

The French take great pride in their rich cheese history and as with wine there is a whole system to protect its authenticity. The AOC guards the traditional methods of cheese-making and the designation of origin is fiercely defended. As a cheese-lover this means that France has a vast variety of delicious cheeses for you to savour. This evening makes a terrific gift for someone special.

Absolutely brilliant night at the cheese and wine pairing, got to understand how the wines are made, compare colours, body etc plus matched up with different cheeses. Really nice group of people as well, really enjoyed it and now want to try the sparkling wine session!!

On our extremely popular evenings we match six carefully selected wines with our inspired choice of artisan cheeses. Finding your perfect match is a delicious endeavour.

Join us at our cheese and wine tasting in Manchester to find your​ perfect match of cheese and wine. Explore with us a range of delicious French cheeses as we match them with some Classic French wines.

To enhance your enjoyment, we will select wines from all over France, both red and white to complement the flavour of the cheese.

What to expect at your Cheese and Wine Tasting Manchester evening:

With such a huge variety of French cheeses to choose from it's difficult to select only six. The choice will be made near the time on the basis of availability. You can be sure that the cheeses will include a wide range of fine examples-pressed, soft and blue. We will showcase the different types of milk used in France, including cow, goat and ewe's milk.

Served with a selection of crackers, bread, nuts, fruit, chutney and garnishes.

Possible Cheese Selections:

Pressed or Hard Cheeses

  • Pont l'Evèque-a soft creamy cheese one of the oldest in France.

Possible Wine Selections:

Traditionally it has been a given that only red wine goes best with cheese. Here at Northern Wine School we believe that the best wine is the one YOU love. We will offer you a wide range across the six chosen wines including white and sparkling as well as red. Discover the combination you prefer. However we do believe that a local wine will go well with its local cheese.

For example a  Gewürztraminer with Brie or a Sauvignon Blanc with goats cheese.
