There are few things in life that are considered a more perfect pair than cheese and wine. On Saturday January 6th, you'll be able to sample a selection of both at the Hambledon Vineyard Cheese & Wine Evening. For £30 you'll be taken through a selection of Hambledon's sparkling wines by Champagne and sparkling expert, Didier Pierson, while enjoying a range of cheeses that complement the bubbles.
The Hambledon vineyard was first planted in 1952, with advice from famed Champagne House Pol Roger. In 1999 the land and vineyard were acquired by Ian Kellett, whose passion for wine led him to develop Hambledon Vineyard as it stands today. The vineyard specialises in English sparkling wines, five of which you'll be able to taste at the Cheese and Wine Evening.
The Cheese & Wine Evening will be held on Saturday January 6th and runs from 6:30pm till 8:30pm. Tickets can be purchased online from the Hambledon Vineyard website, and while you're there you can see many of the other events hosted by the vineyard from tastings to cellar tours.
Hambledon Vineyard is located about 20miles from Southampton on the outskirts of the South Downs National Park. If you want to visit Hambledon Vineyard during the day, tours are available according to a schedule or via appointment.
