Fine and Rare Port and Cheese Evening (Sheffield)
After the success of the Fine Port and Cheese evening in Leeds last couple of years we had many requests to run a similar evening in Sheffield. As we did last year, we'll be seeking out the finest Ports and pairing them with delicious cheeses sourced from local, artisan independent cheesemongers. What better Christmas gift for the food and wine lover in your life?
The emphasis of our tasting will be on exploring a range of different cheeses including from crumbly, nutty cheddar to soft and salty blues and matching them to different styles of Port. Many people enjoy a tipple of Port (usually a Ruby or LBV style) in the winter, but we want you to taste the full range of flavours that this quintessentially British drink has to offer. We will enjoy:
- a light and fruity Ruby Port
- a soft and smooth Late Bottle Vintage Port
- a nutty and caramel-like Aged Tawny Port
- a Single Quinta Vintage Port a rare treat from a single vineyard site
- a Vintage Port- beautifully aged and complex
- and finally a New World Port look-a-like to see how they compare
Many of the Ports are hard to find outside of specialist wine merchants and often exceptionally expensive, so if you would like the chance to taste them all side by side then book quickly!
Places are strictly limited to 12, so please book early to avoid disappointment!
If you would like to book a place on this tasting as a Christmas gift, we can send you a gift voucher with the details of the event printed on. Just use the 'send me a gift voucher' option in the confirmation email after you have made your booking.
