Wine tasting evening—Matching wine & food

The next tutored Wine Tasting & Supper, at The Galley Woodbridge

Thursday 11th November 2010
7.30 - 10.00 pm

Matching food & wine, has been a great interest & passion. The relevance is reinforced, when the meal experience in totally enhanced by successful pairings. Having said that, I've never been one to push the theory to the extreme, believing much more in a practical approach, where wine style is all important.

Join Neil Courtier to taste eight wines, specially chosen to accompany a four course dinner designed by Ugur & the chefs at The Galley.
