The Cheese and Wine Festival is now in its third year and continues to celebrate the finest cheeses and wines and demonstrate the nuances and delights of the relationship between the two.
It offers an alternative to supermarket shopping by showcasing companies who uniquely source products from small artisan producers, as well as direct producers. All stand holders will be offering their expertise and detailed product knowledge during the event.
You can expect a deliciously diverse range of flavours and combinations, a variety of cheeses and wines and associated products.
Plan the event around lunch or dinner and enjoy some delicious hot savoury foods made with cheese or wine.
The weekend will host a whole array of cheese and wine specialists giving talks and demonstrations including Patricia Michelson founder of La Fromagerie, the Guardian’s wine writer Fiona Beckett, French Chef and Baker Richard Bertinet, renowned restauranteurs such as Henry Harris from Racine, Luisa Welch and John Quilter; and specialist premium suppliers such as Vintage Roots, Casa Leal and Auswineonline as well as individual specialists in their field.
Due to popular demand the festival will now be held bi-annually with a second date in Autumn 2011, offering visitors the best products every season has to offer.
