OBs, parents (current and former) and friends of the School logged on to take part in an evening of Festive Food and Wine Pairing with Master of Wine, Christopher Burr’s (58-69). Taking place online the week before Christmas, it was a fantastic way to get everyone in the Festive Spirit.
In advance of the evening, attendees purchased reasonably priced sparkling, white, red and dessert wines that had been recommended by Christopher. On the night, Christopher expertly talked about each of the wines providing a fascinating insight into their origins, describing some of the processes and advising which foods they could best be paired with.
Everyone who attended had a wonderful time and went away with a better insight into what to look for when choosing wines.
The event was recorded, so please feel free to watch the video and find out more from our expert.
Christopher has kindly offered to run some more online wine tasting events, so keep an eye out for further updates.
