French Cheese & Wine Matching
It’s time to get to grips with French fromage and vin! At this tasting we will decode French wine and cheese and give you the keys to understanding why things that ‘grow together go together’!
The next time you go shopping for French wine or cheese you will understand the regions and how this effects the flavours you will encounter inside the bottle or on your plate. If you thought French cheese was mainly brie and camembert then prepared to be wowed by the amazing selection we will be sampling. We will be looking at soft, blue and pressed cheeses and see how they can be further divided into farmhouse and dairy based producers. Not only that we will look at the tradition of ‘appellation controlee’ as well as some of the more modern characteristics.
We'll taste wines made from some of the following Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and Chenin Blanc.
All tonights cheese comes from our friends at Partisan Cheesemonger and Deli in Guildford.
Partisan Cheesemonger & Deli is the product of a long friendship between Mike and Owen who had a shared obsession with cheese and a love of small, independent and locally focused shops. This led to the opening of their fabulous little shop in Chapel Street, Guildford in October 2016 and it has gone from strength to strength since. They stock a range of the best artisan cheeses, focussing chiefly on the UK, but also selecting the best of the rest from Europe.'
