I was given a Cheese and Wine tasting experience for my Mothers' Day present and went with a friend on the 27th July. It was a fabulous evening as we learnt some basics of wine tasting, including about different grapes, climates and terroir and production methods. Then we tasted 6 wines matched with 6 different (and delicious) cheeses. John from Northern Wine School is extremely knowledgeable and friendly and created a relaxed and fun atmosphere. He was happy to go into more detail for those who were interested and to answer any questions. We met some lovely people and there was nothing pretentious about the evening. It was all about enjoyment. And I learnt lots! German Riesling and Garstang Blue cheese? Who would have thought that would work but it does! Sadly I can only eat Comté with Champagne now!! One tip: don't have a big meal beforehand; there's loads of cheese, bread and crackers to feast on! Wonderful experience, highly recommended. Thanks, John.
Join us at our wine and cheese tasting in Manchester to find your perfect match of cheese and wine. Explore with us a range of delicious cheeses as we match them with some quality wines.
To enhance your enjoyment, we will select wines from all over the world, both red and white to complement the flavour of the cheese.
Absolutely amazed with the spread of wines and cheeses.
It was great to learn all about the different wines and accompaniments in a relaxed atmosphere.
Very informative and interesting presentation hosted by John and I'm sure all the other attendees enjoyed it just as much.
We'll be back !!
A feast of Fromage-The possibilities
The wine list
Gruyère The "Champagne of cheeses" is rooted in a region
that gives it a unique flavour and character. At first fruity then nutty & earthy.
of course sumptuous, rich, toasty, heavily Pinot Noir based.
French Goat's Cheese Mild & creamy - we'll serve this with some fig chutney
as they do in nearly every restaurant in The Loire
A Sauvignon Blanc from Eastern Loire or maybe New Zealand. Its fresh green fruit flavours will enhance the velvety cheese.
Garstang Blue made by Dewlay's Creamery in Garstang. This is a milder style of blue cheese which is rich and mellow with a smooth creamy texture.
A Riesling the ultimate food-friendly wine, its natural sweetness
& fragrance complements the subtle tang of the blue cheese.
Mrs Kirkham's Traditional Lancashire This hand made cheese has a
buttery yoghurty flavour with a fluffy texture that melts in the mouth.
Beaujolais-a light and pleasantly fruity wine with aromas of
cherry, strawberry & raspberry brings out the delicacy of this cheese.
Manchego- mildly gamey full of hazel-nutty sweetness, this mild aged sheep's cheese often found as part of a Tapas feast across Spain.
Rioja-well what else? It's soft silky tannins, oak spice and
savoury flavours emphasise this delicious "Umami" mature cheese.
Artisan Mature Cheddar-tangy savoury and strong with a long finish.
Has complex flavours and a gentle creamy mouthfeel.
Cabernet Sauvignon-the classic red whether from Bordeaux, South Africa, Australia or California. Deep ruby red with intense blackcurrant flavours.
The exact selections will vary according to availability. However you will certainly enjoy six different wine and cheese combinations in the company of around twelve other wine & fromage enthusiasts. We will ensure there will be a varied selection with different wine styles and interesting cheeses to go with them. This course would also make a superb 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!!
