About this Event

Join us for a fabulous wine tasting at Devon’s award-winning Brickhouse Vineyard in Mamhead, near Exeter led by guest speaker Rebecca Mitchell DipWSET*.

The experience will take place in a beautifully restored, 18thC Round House overlooking the vineyard. We will taste a selection of six wines from “Coastal Regions” around the world including two whites, two Rosés and two reds. These will be paired with artisan cheeses from delicate and soft styles, to mature and blue-veined, followed by a selection of handmade canapés matching the style of each wine. All this will be served with delicious breads and crackers.

During the experience, you will discover how these wines have been made, discuss the building blocks for each wine such as acidity, alcohol, tannin, body and sweetness, enjoy the various aroma and flavour profiles, and learn how to taste wine like a professional. We will discuss the principles of successful wine and food pairing and you can pick up some really good tips that you will be able to use at your next dinner party!
