Let's get this summer officially started by having an evening of killer white wines. From
zesty, zingy humdingers like Sancerres, NZ Sauvignons or Albarino, to the all-muscle white-wine-for-red-wine-lovers White Riojas, aged Semillons or whopper white Burgundies, we will try a diverse range of wines.
If you're already a white wine lover you'll be drenched in heaven. If you are usually a red drinker, time to come and be wooed by the white! Too often white wine is the bridesmaid to red winezilla. At this fascinating tasting, our wines will be treated as lovingly as reds: we'll decant, we'll swirl and sniff, we'll warm a few of them up a little. #goodstuffonly
The tasting will showcase various grape varieties, some trusty faves and something new to surprise you. All three wines will also come from different countries so we can really get to know how varied in style white can be. We'll also look into the wine making techniques that produce different styles of wine. This way you can learn what wines you like best and how to find more of them in the future.
And... never had cheese with white wine? Get giddy about these combos. As white wines usually have higher acidity than red wines, they are perfect accompaniments to cheese.
Alongside your white wines you will receive a box of artisan cheese pairings, fruit preserve and premium crackers. We source our cheese from the delectable Harrogate cheesemonger The Cheeseboard. Their cheeses are all specialty produce from across the world made by small production passionate cheese makers.
See your friends
Throughout the tasting, you'll have an opportunity to join any other friends or family
who are also on the tasting in a private breakout room. So if you fancy seeing some far away friends for a wine infused catch up then this is your chance. The link will stay open after the tasting for you to carry on your private party.
If you’re flying solo and you fancy chatting with other wine lovers, there’s an
opportunity to join the ‘social breakout room’. One guest described this as like ‘meeting other people at the bar’.
Va Va Zoom
Following the arrival of your wines and cheeses, The Drink Talking will host an interactive, upbeat and educational tasting with Sophia via Zoom. Let her entertain you with education about the wine regions, grapes and cheese pairings all served with a side of humour and a belly laugh. The Zoom tastings include a presentation, polls, quizzes and break out rooms which will allow you to be interactive with Sophia and other guests, or, if you prefer, simply sit back and enjoy the presentation.

A note on price
Hey folks, let’s talk about price. Like most other businesses at these times, The Drink Talking has incurred some price increases over this last year. Brexit has meant inflation on both wine and cheeses, as well as delivery costs being affected by Covid. Because of this, this season’s events have unfortunately (and begrudgingly) increased a little in price. Thank you for your continued support; I’ll be using these extra queen heads to feed your wine and cheese habit with all my might
