This Masterclass is a unique opportunity to sit with a Vinter and Affineur for an exclusive experience with no more than 2 guests.
Around a table you will gain an insight into the world of Artisan Cheese. Given by our Affineur; Nick, he will take you through the process of production using his 30 years of experience as both a Judge of Cheese and as a Cheese Monger. Listen to anecdotes and stories about the Artisans who lovingly make their cheese. Gain an insight into their world of grass, terroir, milk, bacteria, storage and, most of all, get to taste 4 fabulous cheeses that represent the best of Artisan Cheese.
Those cheeses will compliment the wines that your Vintner; Harry, has especially selected for the Event. Some of which are from his own personal cellar. Harrys palate remains largely classical from his time serving Royals and a whole host of celebrities at white table-cloth Wiltons. As well as being a wine judge panellist, Harry’s true passion in wine revolves around telling the stories of vineyards, wine regions and small family-owned wineries, transporting his guests into the vineyards of the world.
The experience starts with a tour of our maturation room whilst enjoying a glass of fizz. We have an amazing selection of cheeses and the private tasting allows you to come into the maturation room and see the large truckles of cheese up close. Nick will take you through the maturation process then you will move to our tasting room where the experience will continue.
That experience will include a selection of Artisan cheeses including some that are unique and not available for sale in our shop yet. Biscuits will be served, as will, a selection of wines to bring out the best in the cheese.
This Experience is run on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday only. If the day you prefer is not available please contact to arrange a date that suits you.
