Can anyone point me at the wines for the tasting on 5th November 2020? The website says they’d be announce around 5th October but I can’t find anything.
I think we’re only out as far as the Fine Wine Champs on the 22nd.
Seems fair. Do we know how many wines there will be. I assuming 4 given the cheeses but…? Might be a push between 2 of us!
It says on the page for this tasting that you’ll be contacted if you have signed up by 5th October.
I’ve not yet signed up but thinking of it. Wanted to check things out first.
The website has been updated with the details of the wines to be tasted.
Note that to have the cheese delivered in time to participate in the event you need to order the cheeses by the 1st November.
Thanks! I’ve signed up and ordered the wines!
Unfortunately I’m not able to make the tasting, but I can vouch for Baron Bigod being a really excellent English farmhouse ‘brie’ made by a small team in Suffolk. They’ve been featured on Radio 4’s The Food Programme to talk about how they had to adapt to the cancellation of orders following the closure of restaurants due to Covid.
I’ll be putting in a direct order with them for Xmas from their website here:
For those of you (like me!) that have signed up for the November wine tasting, if you live in Nottingham, there is a local option to purchase matching cheese.
My friends at Delilah Fine Foods have put together a cheeseboard that matches, and possibly surpasses, what has been suggested.
It can be ordered here and can be collected or delivered.
(Full disclosure: I have no stake in the business but I am a regular visitor!)
