We’re sorry, this experience is not able to go ahead right now.
Due to the current Covid restrictions, this experience is unable to take place during December 2020.
Every booking - regardless of when this takes place, will play a part in helping our local businesses to survive this challenging time and help them bounce back when we are able to visit them in person again.
Book something to look forward to or gift to someone special for when lockdown is over, or to celebrate a brand new year!
A wine tasting with a rich chocolate twist awaits in this pairing experience with Clifton Wine School. Come along to try a delicious selection of wines, each with its own specially chosen artisan chocolate pairing.
During your two hour experience in a private room at Royal Navy Volunteer, you’ll taste six different wines, usually a selection of reds and sweet wines. These are each matched perfectly with chocolate sourced from local chocolatiers, including anything from dark to high quality milk chocolate, truffles and even rich chocolate cake.
You’ll be hosted for the evening by either the owner of Clifton Wine School, Ruth, who has been teaching the intricacies of wine for the last 10 years, or Jess, who specialises in food and wine pairing. They’ll talk you through each wine and its match, helping you discover more about your own wine tastes.
To make sure their tastings are Covid safe, Clifton Wine School are ensuring: - enhanced hygiene measures for staff - enhanced hygiene measures for customers - group size restrictions - room sanitisation - glass hygiene - wine pouring by staff only - removal of spitoons (please bring your own if you require one) - social distancing measures - track and trace
Please arrive for 7pm. We will be in the private room upstairs.
Ruth’s aim with Clifton Wine School is to make wine tasting accessible for everyone. They like to focus on flavour and aroma, revealing how the characteristics of the grape can be influenced by climate and local winemaking styles. Their wine tastings and wine courses are above all fun and entertaining and always have a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere. Their guests can come in small groups or even by themselves as each of their experiences is a great opportunity to meet other wine lovers who are curious to sample some unique flavours.
Jess is highly qualified in wine and loves the interaction of teaching people in wine matching experiences. Her particular specialty is pairing food and wine, and she’s always happy to help people find new matches and tasty flavour combinations.
Ruth is the owner of Clifton Wine school and is a WSET qualified tutor, with a diploma in wines and spirits. Ruth has been teaching about wine for 10 years and loves pairing wine with food - a particular favourite of hers is the combination of truffles and a good port. Whilst hosting these experiences she loves the delight when people discover why they like the new wine they’re tasting - her aim is always to help people find new flavours to explore.
