Perfect Pairings: Wine & Artisanal Cheese
An educational wine & food experience
Sip and savor your way through the history of the perfect marriage of cheese and wine pairings in this interactive and educational class. In addition to learning about general pairing guidelines and suggestions, your sommelier instructor and cheese aficionado will discuss the cheese making process, history of cheese, main types of cheese and general composition of cheese and wine.
Although there is something truly tantalizing about the combination, "Wine & Cheese" is said to be one of the most difficult pairings. We’ll go beyond the classics -like Montrachet with White Burgundy; Chavignol with Sancerre; Manchego with Rioja; Chianti with Parmigiano - and learn the magic and why behind crafting the perfect wine and cheese pairing.
Sit back and relax as your sommelier instructor sets the stage for an unforgettable, educational cheese and wine experience. Our wine classes provide a unique context for the enjoyment of wine appropriate for every level of interest and expertise.
Throughout the evening, you will learn about the history, culture and language of cheese and wine through visual presentations, commentary and anecdotes from our personal experiences. And best of all, you’ll leave us with greater confidence, passion and understanding so you can ultimately experience the pleasure of a perfect pairing.
