Italian Food and Wine Tasting with GrazieCambridge - 27th November - University Centre - £25

Grazie Cambridge Kitchen will be joining us again and this time it is to a tasting matching their wonderful Italian produce with some of the fantastic Italian wines with have at the Cambridge Wine Merchants.

After the resounding success of the ‘Incredible’ Dario Corrias, of GrazieCambridge & Le Raffinatezze at our Bridge Street Wine Bar last month we have decided to take thing one step further!

Once again he will be offering a delectable selection of meats and cheeses which we will pair perfectly with a deep mix of Italian wines from all over the country. Dario will run you through all you need to know about the food on offer while our own Katy Kennedy will explain the wines for you.

We are often asked to pair wines with food for our customers when they purchase from our shops and this will be an excellent opportunity to learn how this is done but also why it works.

We look forward to seeing you!
Tickets are £25 from the link below or contact one of our branches.
