Wine Tasting Bristol & Bath | Food & Wine Matching

This fun workshop is a must for all foodies and a fantastic introduction to the principles of food & wine pairing.

Change the way you view the relationship between food and wine forever, as you spend two hours in the company of an experienced wine tutor who'll share essential food matching hints, tips and techniques in an unstuffy, accessible and deliciously hands-on way.

In a small group (maximum size 14) you'll taste a diverse range of food and wine samples, and discover how to assess elements in both to find ideal matches, as well as learning what to avoid - and why. You'll learn about key principles and the foundations of pairing techniques, as we help you to answer questions like "can wine stand up to curry?" and "does red wine really go with fish" plus much more! 

Tasting glasses, samples, artisan bread, water and notes to take away are all provided.


You'll be given an option to select your purchase as a gift when completing your online booking, we can then send you a gift certificate by email or post to present to your guest. Should the date you book be unsuitable, your guest can transfer to another date provided we receive 10 working days notice.
