What you'll do
We're going to take a detailed look at wine and food pairing through the medium of chocolate. Pairing 5 of our single vineyard, low intervention wines with different types of chocolate, we'll investigate why some pairings work better than others, and how the chemistry of flavour helps the wine and chocolate interact to provide the most amazing, and often unexpected, matches. The groups are limited to a maximum of eight to keep the experience intimate and allow, and encourage, our guests to ask any questions they wish. The aim is for you to get a deeper understanding of flavour and leave more confident in your ability to match any wine with almost any food.
I'm the Estate and Production Manager of Glenguin Estate where my family and I live on the estate and I oversee all aspects of the viticulture and winemaking, as well as running the cellar door. I have been certified by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust in Wines to level 3 and hold university qualifications in Viticulture and Winemaking. I've been living in the Broke Fordwich region of the Hunter Valley for the past three years and am passionate about the region and the high quality wines we produce here.
All chocolates for the tasting are provided.
