Cheese & Wine Pairing in Bristol

Calling All Cheese & Wine Lovers! Spend a relaxed and fun time in the company of an experienced professional wine host and a delicious selection of artisan cheese and fine wines from around the world as part of a small group.

Starting off with a fun introduction to wine tasting, your host will deliver lots of helpful tips on everything from pairing cheese and other food to advice on buying wine and finding quality and value. 

You'll taste each wine 'blind' to remove any preconception and focus on flavour before re-tasting it with a carefully chosen artisan cheese.

We'll explain why each pairing works before the big reveal when we'll explain a little about each wine and cheese, where they are from, who has made them and how.  

A most delicious way to learn about the world of wine and cheese in a fun, hands-on way!
