Christmas Special- What to drink with your festive cheeseboard: Yorkshire Wine School Vs The Decante
For the last couple of years the YWS vs Decanter 'Grape Debate' has been one of the most popular events we run; given that our evenings are always very closely matched (by our count it's currently neck and neck!), we were keen to challenge then to a new contest...
Welcome to our festive competitive collaboration special! A 'Grape Debate', if you will! We are taking the Wine School to our friends in Leeds at The Decanter Bar on Park Row to put their extremely popular wine list through its paces. The Decanter is a bar dedicated to serving a wide range of great quality wines which are a little more unusual than those that you'll find in your average Leeds bar. This evening will showcase 3 of The Decanters best wines, as chosen by owner Alex, matched up against 3 of wines which have been favourites at the Wine School as selected by YWS taster-in-chief, Laura.
The format of the evening will be a head to head contest: The Decanter vs Yorkshire Wine School, Alex vs Laura! 4 wines specially selected from The Decanter list and 4 wines from the Wine School's back catalogue of favourites. We will taste a range of styles- from crisp and zingy whites to hearty, warming reds and even a sticky or two- each pair will be accompanied by an impassioned plea from your two hosts as they seek to win your vote for best wine to pair with your Christmas Cheeseboard. You will be furnished with scorecards to mark your favourites, and we'll tally up the score as we go along. At the end of the evening the winner will be announced....
This evening includes:
- a fun and intereactive wine tasting in the beautiful Decanter Wine Bar right in the centre of Leeds
- 7 wines to taste (welcome fizz plus 3 from The Decanter team and 3 from Yorkshire Wine School)
- your chance to vote for your favourite wine in a 'Grape Debate'-style interactive tasting
- cheese board from Decanter, to share at the table
