Vegan Wine & Cheese Tasting

Event Navigation

From the organizers: 

Travel the world of wines and become confident in pairing cheese with wine for a dinner party, wine tasting, or intimate evening for two.

About this Event

Learn how to pair vegan cheese and wine so you can elevate the flavors of both!

Are there rules? Are reds better than whites? What order should you try the cheese and wine in for best results? What makes wine vegan and do they taste different?

We’ll cover this and much more in this two hour fun and educational class with sommelier and Certified Wine Educator Sunny Gandara.

We’ll be pairing wines from the old and new world with Riverdel’s house made cashew cheeses as well as other nut cheeses sourced from all over the country.

The class is held at Essex Market – detailed dirctions will follow a few days prior to the event.
