Jan 21, 2015 - Cheers & Cheese
A tasting of some of the most interesting cheese from the British Isles. We will explore the changing face of cheese making in England, Scotland and Ireland, while sampling an interesting array of ales and ciders. Lots of new cheeses are available to us these days, so take this opportunity to try some of our new and old favourites.
Feb 10, 2015 - Canada's Top Prize Winners
The arena of Canadian cheese and wine making has certainly changed over the last few decades. Come and judge for yourself some of the cheeses that have won top honours at home and on the world stage. Try a selection of some grand prize winners and match them to some of the new crop of amazing Canadian wines. There is such an abundance to choose from, we’ll have a tough time choosing!
Mar 11, 2015 - Vintage Port Tasting
Join Cynthia Opsal - Fladgate Partnership Brand & Western Canada Key Account Manager at Pacific Wine and Spirits Inc. This tasting will cover a range vintage ports. Port is a wonderful partner to cheese, so it will be a treat to pair some with an interesting selection of vintage ports from Cynthia’s favourite Port Houses. Port also goes well with chocolate ….hint hint.
Apr 14, 2015 - Original vs Imitator
This will definitely not be a tasting for the meek, we want your opinions! We’re going to try 12-14 cheeses from their place of origin and then match them up with some of the cheeses that are made in their likeness. Are they pale imitators – or are they better than the real deal? Let’s find out and hopefully get some strong opinions on what your favourites are.
