Allison's Favourites: For two persons
with host Allison Spurrell
Event Date: Sunday September 25
Start Time: 6:00 pm
Duration: 1 hour
Location: Facebook Live
Join your host Allison Spurrell for a live-streamed guided cheese tasting on our Facebook page. Allison will will chat about some of her favourite cheeses, and the wines she likes to drink with them.
We'll set you up with a tasting package for two persons, including:
- Cheese (8 types)
- Tasting menu
We'll pack everything to go in one of our LADF Gift Boxes.
Wine is not included.
We're planning on pairing cheeses with three wines. We've chosen a sweeter Riesling to pair with blue cheeses. Feel free to visit your favorite wine store, or bring up a bottle from the cellar to enjoy at the tasting. We've included some suggestions for you.
- Veuve Clicquot
- While it is not Champagne, you could try a Cremant for a few $ less, or a BC Sparkling wine.
2) Red Bordeaux
- Chateau Canada
- Chateau de Carles
- Chateau Lanessan
- You could also enjoy a BC wine that is a Bordeaux Blend
3) German Riesling - Auslese (sweeter style)
Allison will be drinking an Auslese, which is a late harvest German Riesling. There are only a few producers of Auslese in stock at the BCLDB, but some private shops have stock. They will be a bit more pricey that Spatlese, which is still sweet, but less sweet than Auslese.
We’ve listed some great producers of Spatlese below.
- Max Ferd Richter
- JJ Prum
Marquis Wine Cellars / Liberty Wines also have a large selection of German Riesling.
Pickup will only be available at our East Van store. Your Tasting kit will be ready for pick up any time after 10 am on Friday Sep 23. Please have your name and order # ready when picking up.

We will happily substitute the crackers for a gluten free alternative. Please request that in the comments section when paying.
