Deep Dive

Have you ever wondered how geology influences viticulture and ultimately the wine in your glass? Why is it that certain cheeses partner so beautifully with wines and create a harmonious synergy? Join us at Once as Yvonne, our resident geologist speaks to the glacial action that formed the region, and how it impacts wine. Devon, our resident fromager has designed a curated tasting of some of the elegant and rare local cheeses that are produced in the region. This tasting showcases why some cheese and wine parings are, well quite frankly, irresistible. Our team of WSET certified wine educators will talk you through the viticultural and enological choices made, and how that presents itself in glass. We will also show you how to professionally taste wine, explaining the appearance, the nose and the palate of the wines. The deep dive will consist of a flight of four wines, with a selection from a range of varietals and styles. Each guest will also get a personal charcuterie and cheese board to snack on as we explore the why behind the what.Deep Dive Team
