Great Tasting Wine & Cheese Evening

The Samphire Club’s recent Wine and Cheese Evening hosted by The Cornish Food Box in Truro proved to be very popular; so much so, that a Wine Masterclass (on grape varieties and styles of wine) is already being planned for the New Year.

With guided tastings led by two absolute experts in their respective fields, there was also ample opportunity for mingling and making new connections. One recently engaged Samphire Club member rather usefully met a wedding planning expert!

Tom Hancock aka The Cornish Vintner led the wine tasting and Thomas Hanson from Hanson Fine Foods guided guests through the selection of cheeses he’d supplied.

Samphire Club member, The Cornish Vintner, is happy to put together bespoke cases of wine for members at a special preferential Samphire Club rate and was delighted to report that he’s already taken several orders following the tasting. And with the festive season not so far away, Tom can also select and dispatch single bottles as gifts to clients or suppliers.

Hanson Fine Foods delivers cheese within Cornwall free of charge and a visit to Thomas’ website reveals a truly extensive selection of cheeses and other fine foods.

On that festive theme, The Cornish Food Box is busy putting together its range of Christmas Hampers – perfect gifts for friends and family, and another opportunity for Samphire Club members to support each other.
