Food & Wine Tastings £30+
Our special Food and Wine evenings are designed to be fun, informal and interactive. But perhaps most importantly, they demonstrate the principles of food and wine matching in the best way that we know how; by eating food and drinking wine together! We work with the best local food specialists to bring you events which will tantalise your tastebuds.
Whether it's our Food & Wine Workshops, where we take some of Scotland's finest natural produce and match them to some international wines - these courses are all about celebrating these tasty delicacies by matching them up with some equally delicious wines. Ever tried Arbroath Smokie with Sancerre? Or peat-smoked salmon with Champagne? How about Highland game terrine with a juicy Pinot Noir?
Or how about cheese and wine? Ever wondered why Port and Stilton go so well together, or what goes with a nice creamy brie? Teaming up with George Mewes Cheese for this one just makes sense!
Or, perhaps you're just after one of our special restaurant hosted evenings where we team up with the chef of a local restaurant to bring you a food and wine evening to tantalise your tastebuds.
On these evenings we'll explore these classic flavour combinations and more, as well as discussing the guiding principals behind successfully matching food with wine. We'll also talk about the grape varieties and understand some of the factors that combine to make the wines taste the way they do, and you'll pick up plenty of tips that you can put to good use at your next dinner party!
The price for our Food & Wine tastings includes a minimum of six wines, a tutored tasting, and either canape-style samples of all the foods on the workshops, or a setr menu dinner if it is being hosted by the restaurant. Professional ISO tasting glasses and tasting sheets are provided.
These popular tastings run throughout the year - more dates announced soon. All tastings can be purchased as a Gift Vouchers (Valid for 2 Years), which make a great present for any occasion.
