Daygustation can design a wine experience tailored to your requirements and budget. Our passion for good tastes means that food and wine pairing usually plays a central role in any of our tastings. We specialise in expert, yet informal events where people learn, but most importantly have a good time.
Here are a few of our most popular formats:
Daygustation have devised the ultimate challenge for your taste buds! Can you tell the difference between old and young , red and white or cheap from expensive? Sounds easy on paper, but once the pressure starts to kick in you will be surprised how difficult it actually is. We are offering a pentathlon (1 hour/5 rounds) or a decathlon (2hrs/10rounds). Whether working in teams or individually this is a fun, interactive experience. Our expert tutor will be on hand to run the event and stop the inevitable cheating! Have you got what it takes to be the best? From £50 per person.
Daygustation’s wine and cheese pairing sets the record straight about many popular misconceptions: people assume that red wine and cheese go together, but actually red wines only work well with hard cheeses. White wines, with higher acidity, are often a much better match for creamy and goat milk cheeses. Blue cheese will overpower nearly all red and white wines, so only a fortified wine like Port or sweet wine like Sauternes will work. When you get it right the combination is lipsmacking taking the wine and cheese to another level. We will guide you to wine and cheese heaven using eight fine wines and eight artisanal cheeses. From £75 per person (or £65 for 6 wines and 2 beers/ciders)
Champagne is the undisputed king of sparkling wines, but what makes it so special? Don’t worry if you don’t know your riddling from your disgorgement, we will bring alive the Champagne story with a tasting of the seven main styles: Non-Vintage, Vintage, Rosé, Prestige Cuvée, Demi-Sec, Blanc de Blanc and Blanc de Noirs.
From £100 per person.
