Ewe will be surprised……

by | Mar 3, 2015 | Wine Courses | 0 comments

Week 4 of the Cheese Course focused on ewe’s milk cheese, and another revelatory evening was in store.  Some of the best known cheeses in the world, such as Manchego and Roquefort come from sheep’s milk, which came as a big surprise to many.

Highlights from the cheese and wine matching were

  • The Entre Deux Mers 2013 partnered with a very delicate Wigmore from Berkshire.
  • Late Harvest Garnacha 2012 from Catalonia paired with an Appenine hollow-aged Pecorino.
  • Ch Laville 2009 Sauternes with a Lanark Blue from Scotland.

Sheep’s milk contains a much higher amount of protein than cow or goat and produces a higher quantity of cheese per litre.  The quality of all the cheeses was oustandingly high – testament to the Teddington Cheese.

“Throughout the 17 years I have attended Tim’s wine tasting events, he has continued to deliver his extensive knowledge of wine and wine-making with great charm, and lots of humour, making the evenings not only informative, but also great fun. In the course of an average year, the tastings cover a kaleidoscope of different wine themes – interesting and entertaining for all, novices and experts alike. And the wines taste pretty good too!”

“We have been going to Teddington Wine Society events for a number of years. Tim runs the evenings with bonhomie and humour and wears his considerable knowledge lightly. The evenings are great fun, the wines are always a little bit different and help to expand knowledge and tasting horizons.”

“I have attended the Richmond Wine society for over ten years and always enjoyed Tim’s self-effacing style and gentle humour. His knowledge is globally eclectic and presented in a clear, interesting and always stimulating way. Every guest I have taken there has enjoyed the evening immensely. Tim also offers a wide range of wines to buy and my red cellar has provided great pleasure to my own dinner guests.”

“I’ve been enjoying Tim’s tastings for over 20 years – he is a great teacher, raconteur and wine expert. He is seriously passionate about his wine, but there is nothing serious about his tastings, which are always informal and relaxed. A lovely way to spend an evening and enjoy some fantastic wines.”
