Summer Cheese & Wine

A tasting hosted by Francis Percival

Summer is the time for al fresco dining, for bright and refreshing wines--it is rosé season after all--and for food that looks towards the Mediterranean for inspiration. This is the time of the year for tomatoes and olive oil, but it is also peak season for the production of goat's and ewe's milk cheeses: the new season's hard cheeses have also begun to ripen and they cry out for searingly dry sherry and the baroque complexity of wines made from the white grapes of the Rhône valley.

Francis Percival writes on food and wine for The World of Fine Wine. His work won Louis Roederer Best International Wine Columnist in 2013 and Pio Cesare Food & Wine Writer of the Year in 2015. Francis is also a judge in The World of Fine Wine World’s Best Wine List Awards. Apart from The World of Fine Wine, his work has appeared in Decanter and the Financial Times in the UK and Culture, Saveur, and Gourmet in the US.

Tickets are limited to 19 seats around our tasting table in Jericho, Oxford.

As we will be serving alcohol, this event is for over 18s only.

Autumn Cheese & Wine

A tasting hosted by Francis Percival

Autumn is the time to celebrate a successful harvest. As the nights draw in it is a great opportunity to rediscover the joys of more substantial wines. With colder weather, rich, golden whites and powerful, juicy reds suddenly seem appropriate. Halloween, Bonfire Night, and Thanksgiving all demand cheeses and wines to accompany mellow autumnal flavours. This is the perfect time to celebrate British territorial cheeses in all their diversity.
