PEOPLE with a passion for fine French wine and cheese are being given the chance to sample both.
Wynyard Hall Country House Hotel, on the outskirts of Hartlepool, is holding a Flavours of France wine tasting evening on Thursday, March 1, the first in a series of tasting events to be held at the four-star venue.
Guests will be able to try a selection of eight wines from the hotel’s own suppliers along with a variety of French cheeses, specially chosen by chefs from its two AA-rosette Wellington Restaurant, to complement the wines.
A leading wine expert will also be on hand throughout the evening to provide information about the chosen wines and the vineyards which produce them.
The event is the first of a trio of wine evenings to be held throughout the year at the hotel.
On Wednesday, July 18, the Mediterranean Marvels evening will give guests the opportunity to try a range of wines from this established region, while Australian wines will take centre stage at The Wizardry Wines of Oz event on Thursday, October 11.
Tickets for the Flavours of France event, which starts at 6pm, cost £25 and can be reserved by calling the Wynyard Hall Events office on (01740) 665414.
