Stilton hates Port, Sauvignon brings out the worst in all but a handful of goat cheese and cider, not red wine, has wooed Cheddar since the 14th century… Whether you agree or disagree, you definitely don't want to miss this tasting.
Lead by Juliet Harbutt Master of Cheese', author of the World Cheese Book and British Cheese Awards chief judge for 21 years and Black Barn's Award-winning Winemaker Dave McKee, don't expect a dull moment. These two big cheeses don't always agree but have a great rapport and vast knowledge between them. This is a fun, fast-moving tasting where you will discover some extraordinary combinations and rediscover the art of tasting cheese and wine.
Ticket price includes wine and cheese samples for this matched tasting. While there will be plenty to go around please note this is not a dinner.
