Cheese and Wine Matching
Two of Lifes greatest indulgences - Wine and Cheese. And what better way to celebrates them than with an evening of some of the finest cheeses that Scotland has to offer paired with some great wines from around the globe.
We will be teaming up with one of Glasgows best Cheese Mongers - George Mewes - to bring you an evening of gastronomic delight. A great way to not only taste some wonderful combinations, but learn and understand what and why certain pairings work so well. We'll also talk about food and wine matching more generally, and you'll pick up some really good tips to take away and practice at home.
Some of Georges achievements include:
- Best New Cheese Retailer 2012 - The British Cheese Awards.
- Best Cheese Counter 2014 - The World Cheese Awards.
- Best Cheesemonger 2015 - at The Farmshop & Deli Awards
We'll try 6 different cheese and wine combinations, and while they will vary a bit from tasting to tasting, these are what we tasted last time:
- CHILDWICKBURY – Pasteurised goats milk. A delicate, moist, smooth, fresh goats cheese. Paired with: Les Charmelles Pouilly Fume
