Xmas Port & Cheese Evening

Activity: Talk or presentation typesPublic Lecture/ Debate/Seminar


The Lancashire Wine School is run by WSET-qualified tutors, with an infectious enthusiasm for their subject and the ability to communicate this to their audience without the use of confusing (& boring!) technical facts. The events concentrate on the flavours and aromas of the wines, focusing on the taste profile of each wine and explaining the characteristics of the grape variety, the climate, and the winemaking, showing you with maps and photos where they came from and how they are made. The events are, above all, fun & entertaining with a relaxed atmosphere - no previous wine tasting experience is required. The best & most enjoyable way to learn about wine is comparing the tastes of different wines side-by-side. Prepare yourself for an evening of indulgence on our Xmas Port and Cheese Tasting. You will have heard of Port and Stilton as a favourite Xmas combination so now is your chance to find out why this works. You will taste your way through 6 luscious ports, while trying different cheeses from our own local Lancashire Crumbly, to the rich and salty blue cheeses. There will also be unusual fruity cheeses that will enhance the rich fruity flavours of the ports.
