Cheese and Wine Tasting

Wine Tasting Possibly the one food pairing that many people know is just how well cheese and wine go together!

With both cheese and wine having such variety in styles and production, and having a history as old as the hills, this perhaps should not come as any surprise.

Whatever your preferred style of  cheese, whether you like a mild or mature Cheddar, a soft, ripe, creamy Brie, or the "King of English Cheese" in a Stilton, there is a wine that will pair with it perfectly! We could even find a match for the humble Dairylea, if we really had to (there will be no Dairylea at our cheese and wine tasting evenings!)

Why Cheese and Wine?

So why do cheese and wine go so well together? Well, with something as subjective as taste, it depends who you ask. Some people will tell you that the fat in the wine helps to soften the tannin in the wine, which may help explain how cheese can help a high tannin wine more drinkable.

Then there's Malolactic Fermentation, which is the process that some wines go through that converts which converts the sharp malic acid found in apple skins, to the much creamier malic acid, which surprise, surprise, is found in milk produce, and gives wines that have undergone this process a creamy or buttery texture. With this in mind, it should come as no surprise that creamyness of cheese will partner so well with wine.

If the science doesn't convince you, then there's the food and wine pairer's mantra "What grows together, goes together".

Cheese and Wine Tasting Evenings

Our cheese and wine pairing workshops, and cheese and wine tasting evenings are run regularly. The cheese and wine pairing will vary depending on the night, but to whet your appetite, some examples of parings from previous events include:

  • Delice de Bourgogne with Champagne
  • Crottin de Chavignol with Sauvignon Blanc
  • Taleggio with Nebbiolo
  • Manchego Curado D.O.P. with Rioja Reserve
  • Morbier with Gewürztraminer
