Christmas Cheese and Wine Matching

Christmas Cheese and Wine Matching

Be ready and prepared for Christmas!  At this special pre-Christmas tasting, come and sample 6 different cheese and wine combinations particularly popular at Christmas so you can plan to make the most of the festive opportunity!


Cheese is often considered the perfect partner to wine, but it's not always easy to know which wines to choose. We will try a variety of combinations and at the end of the evening you can vote which works best for your palate - a great way to learn what works for you.  


We'll look at  6 cheese styles from specialist cheesemongers Paxton and Whitfield, La Fromagerie and Neal's Yard and discuss the principles of cheese and wine matching so you can get it right first time at home.


Matches to include such festive favourites as: 

Dorset Goats cheese, a waxed cheese with a clean, mellow and slightly sweet flavour, with Cremant de Loire

Brightwell Ash, tangy, pleasantly light and silky with Prosecco Brut

Lincolnshire Poacher, densely creamy with sweet pineapple flavours, with a South African, barrel fermented Chenin Blanc

Comte, matured for 18-24 months and with a nutty and savoury flavour, with a Cru Bourgeois Bordeaux

Gruyere, firmly textured with fruity and floral flavours, with Rioja Gran Reserva
