Ever wondered why some wines just taste better when served with food? In this fun, interactive evening we taste our way through some wine and food pairings to learn why they do, and sometimes, don’t “work”. It will change the way you look at how you eat and drink and enhance your overall experience of wine and food. We will taste 6 different wines and try nibbles of food with them to notice what impact they have in the mouth. Please let us know of any dietary requirements on booking.

Your host for this wine and food matching evening is Pip Vanham who has a wealth of experience in the wine industry gained over 20 years. As a wine educator she has hosted countless interactive wine tasting events and loves nothing more than to share her passion for wine in a fun, informal and engaging manner.

We’ll explore six food and wine pairings:

Picpoul de Pinet Sel et Sable paired with Cod Ceviche
Henners Native Grace Barrel Chardonnay paired with Mature Cheddar
Calusari Pinot Noir paired with Charcuterie
Le Riche Cabernet Sauvignon paired with Chocolate
Phebus Malbec paired with Spiced Falafel
Delaforce 10 Year Old Tawny Port paired with Fudge

(wines and nibbles are subject to change according to availability).
