On each Enjoy Discovering Wine Introduction to Wine with Food and Wine Pairing Workshop and Lunch you will learn to taste wine like an expert. We begin with an introduction, or a re-cap for those in the know, on how to taste wine like the professionals. Learn how to make the most of your wine as you learn the basic considerations when pairing food with wine. Then mix and match food and wine. With your new found, or brushed-up, skill we will try a variety of food and wine styles, and decide which work and which do not.
The lunch will start with a wine tasting workshop. Erica will lead you through a tutored tasting of a selection of wines, demonstrating the impact of sweet, sour and salt. Then progressing onto strawberries with and without chocolate sauce, steak and chips with and without salt and sauce, fried fish, chips and mushy peas with and without tartare sauce and lemon, followed by a dessert then cheese – all the while reinforcing the principles of food and wine pairing.
* Price includes wine, workshop four-course lunch, tasting notes, and fun!
