Home Cheese & Wine Tasting Pack (with pre-recorded video)
A tutored cheese-tasting pack delivered via pre-recorded video, which is ideal for home-parties or small ‘zoom’ virtual events across friends.
A varied cheeseboard featuring six 100g portions of the finest farmhouse British cheese (Dorstone, Lancashire, Hafod Cheddar, Baron Brie, Aged Old Winchester, Young Buck Blue), and two matched 375ml bottles of fabulous wine will be delivered, to any address nationwide, in time for the tasting, plus a tasting sheet, scorecard, map and flavour wheel.
Andy Swinscoe, former World Cheesemonger of the Year will guide you on a pre-recorded video as you taste six of the very best British cheeses, explaining their flavours, their histories and why a good cheesemonger would be delighted with them, and give you a detailed tasting background on how to match white and red wine with the cheese.
You’ll soon see why The Courtyard Dairy has won so many awards (including BBC Food & Farming Award, World Cheese Award, Observer Food Monthly Award, Daily Telegraph’s Top 10 Cheese Shops in the World), as Andy guides you through the background of each cheese.
The pack has enough cheese for 2-4 people to enjoy at home. Friends and family can join the tasting via your own video conference if they a pack for their household. The virtual cheese tasting video lasts 30 minutes.
