We headed east this week – East Yorkshire, that is – to find out whether we know our Taleggio from our Gorgonzola at a wine and cheese tasting event with the Hull & East Yorkshire JLD.
The evening was organised by Charlotte Bontoft from Pepperells Solicitors, and the Barrow Boys waterside bar and restaurant on Hull Marina proved to be an ideal setting.
There was a good turnout, and we enjoyed catching up with people from Andrew Jackson, Sandersons, Myton Law, Rradar and Pepperells, among others.
Barrow Boys did us proud with a three-course pairing menu that combined fizz, red, white and rose wines with some delicious cheeses, meats and chutneys. In the end, it was the Argentinian Malbec (Chacabuco-Los Haroldos from Mendoza, for the aficionados) that proved most popular, but pretty much all the wine got drunk regardless of its colour or characteristics!
Our thanks to Charlotte for organising the event, and to everyone who came along – we’ll look forward to future events with the Hull group later in 2019.
