Do you know which wine goes best with which cheese? Are the wines of the Loire a bit of a mystery?

Then come and join us for a fun evening of cheese and wine discovery.

Cathy will introduce you to a range of wines from around the Loire valley. She’ll talk about the different grape varieties and wine styles you can find in the Loire and pair them with a range of French cheeses, charcuterie and crusty bread. You’ll also learn how to put together a cheeseboard and amaze your guests with your newly aquired knowledge of cheese and wine pairing!

If you’re curious to learn about the wines of the Loire in a relaxed, fun environment and fancy a light dinner then come and join us for an evening of wine and cheese in the rear dining room of one of Amboise’s best known bistros, Chez Bruno.

Cathy is English, has the WSET Diploma level 4 plus a Higher National Diploma in vinegrowing and winemaking. She and her husband run full day tours and also work closely with a number of top growers in the region.

These wine and cheese evenings will be in English although French speakers are very welcome.
