The ever so popular Cool Grapes Cheese & Wine Tasting events can be tailored for your own specific requirements. From Engagement to Wedding Parties, from Birthdays to Anniversaries and from Hen/Stag parties to just having your friends round for an evening of fun learning. We have even been the entertainment at a company’s Christmas Party!
We also provide our Cool Cheese & Wine Tastings for Company meetings and on team bonding days, with or without team competitions.
We make our events informal, yet informative and throw out any of that old style wine stuffiness that used to go hand in hand when talking about this awesome tipple! We help our customers to feel more confident about their wine and food pairing choices, empower them to be able to see beyond The label, so that they can, with confidence, choose the perfect wine!
An event will normally consist of 6 or 7 wines paired with the same number of cheeses. We can offer different quality of wines too, from the more commercial variety blends through to Premier Cru, Grand Cru and many Vintage wines. Blind Tasting adds another interesting dimension to all our events and is easily arranged.
The majority of our wines (95%) are all suitable for Vegetarians and/or Vegans and many of our cheese options are also suitable for Vegetarians. Where the cheese is not Vegetarian friendly, we can offer an alternative pairing item such as antipasti.
We provide tasting sheets for you to make your own pairing notes and all you need to supply, will be a couple of bowls for the crackers! (Cealiacs catered for) We will bring: The Wine, ISO Tasting Glasses, Cheese on mini cheese slates, cutting boards, knives and the Corkscrew!
You and your friends will learn about how the wine is made, where it is from and any interesting production facts about the vineyard and wine making process. You will also learn similar about each cheese and then gain an understanding of why we have chosen the pairings for your evening. The interesting part is always if you agree with us!!
Finally, we always say that this subject is completely subjective as there is no right or wrong answer for a pairing, you may experience something completely different to your neighbour and for us at Cool Grapes Ltd, it is always about “the moment” in which you take that sip, the people you are with, the environment in which you find yourself and last but not least, the moment you find yourself in. Salut!
