Exclusive Cheese & Wine Tasting at Squerryes Estate & Vineyard
Traditional French cheeses are prized for their complexity, flavour and unique character. Whilst the light touch and lively acidity of a sparkling wine can balance out those complexities and help to boost the flavours.
Join us on this unique cheese and wine tasting event, overlooking Squerryes Estate vines and discover why these two geographical neighbours make the perfect pairing companions.
You will learn about acidity, fat, texture, sweetness and how to balance these elements among a variety of French cheeses and English wines, including four sparkling wines, made at Squerryes in the traditional method.
Guided Tour of the Vineyard
Your evening begins with a guided tour of the vineyard, where you will learn about the 300-year-old Squerryes estate and its fascinating history. Having learnt about the spirit of the terroir, you will then return to the Cork Room, with its magnificent views across this beautiful corner of the Garden of England.
It is here where you will discover how Squerryes’ exceptional, award-winning sparkling wines pair so well with French cheeses, in a tutored tasting of six beautiful cheeses and six vintage sparkling wines.
