Patrick McGuigan, cheese writer and educator for the Academy of Cheese, teams up with our own Lydia Harrison MW once again for their next cheese and wine pairing webinar.

In this session, they'll explore the concept of terroir and the impact of climate, soil, topography, agricultural practices and the human touch on both cheese and wine. A variety of pairings will be explored - if you would like to taste alongside, Patrick and Lydia will be enjoying the below examples. If you can't find these styles, we've provided some alternatives in brackets which would also work well.


  • Banon Goats cheese (soft goats cheese)
  • Appleby’s Cheshire (Caerphilly or crumbly cheese)
  • Isle of Mull Cheddar (Cheddar, Comte, Gruyere)
  • Roquefort (Gorgonzola, other strong blue cheese)


  • English still rosé (another rosé wine from a cool climate)
  • Chablis
  • Central Otago Pinot Noir, New Zealand (Pinot Noir from California, Chile etc)
  • Sweet botrytised wine eg Sauternes, Tokaj etc.

Join in with one or all four cheeses and wines, or whatever you have available, and see what you enjoy!
