About Academy of Cheese presents: best in class

Intermediate wine tasting

The Academy of Cheese return to WSET School London for our first cheese and wine collaboration of 2019.

This is your chance to taste a round up of top British cheeses, those that professional judges have awarded the top medals to at both British and international competitions in 2018. Whilst tasting you will follow the Academy of Cheese tasting and assessment guide, giving you insight into how cheeses are graded and judged at competition level.

The event will be co-hosted by cheese specialist Charlie Turnbull along with our own Lydia Harrison DipWSET.

Sample cheeses and their pairings:

Sparkenhoe Red Leicester (handmade traditional territorial), with Malbec
Stratford Blue (smooth, creamy blue from Lancashire), with sweet Chenin Blanc
Edmund Tew (creamy, wrinkly Langres style cows milk cheese), with Pinot Noir
Ashlynn (raw milk hard goats cheese), with Syrah/Shiraz
Berkswell (raw milk hard sheep’s milk cheese), with a red or white wine from South West France
Celtic Promise (semi-soft washed rind Caerphilly style), with Viognier
Please note, the exact list may differ slightly on the evening.

The evening starts at 6.30pm, and tastings finish between 8.00 and 8.30pm.
