Wine tasting: food and wine matching events

West Berkshire Brewery beers & Nick Galer’s food
Thursday 18 January 2018

£39* per person

Get a fresh perspective on beer and drinking it with fine food.

The beers will be perfectly matched by Nick to a special five course supper. Beer tasting and food matching heaven!

Join one of our regular food and drink matching nights for a tasting tour with friends and likeminded guests. Wine tasting has been central to these events in the past and now we’re broadening our food matching events to other beverages.
Share a table with new friends or bring old ones for a sociable and interactive evening with our chefs and drinks suppliers. Wander your way through five courses with matched wines, spirits, beers or champagnes, that we taste and debate together. Our drinks experts come armed with at least three tipples that have been previously revealed to Nick.
Nick curates a tasting menu to compliment the drinks. All you have to do is consume it all!

Wine tasting and food matching nights at The Miller of Mansfield

Tasting and matching

Throughout the evening each of the drinks will be introduced. Learn about their provenance, composition and methodology. Hear and taste why each drink works so well with certain ingredients, flavours, spices and dishes. Discover why they’re served in the chosen order. Leave with a little more drinks knowledge and perhaps with new ones to enjoy at home or for a special occasion.

Pick Nick’s brains

Chef patron, Nick, will be on hand to answer your culinary queries, offer advice and suggestions for your own home kitchen creations. Pick his brains on what inspired him about the drinks to create the evening’s menu. Understand his own passion for matching drinks with food. It might be Mary who directs the drinks list, but Nick is known for his penchant for good plonk and decent beer too!

Meet our experts

For our 2017 wine events, we worked with Chapel Down Wines or the ever charming Pierre, from Enotria Winecellars. In 2018 we bring a local feel to events with the makers of local spirits and beers. To celebrate the fourth anniversary of taking over The Miller, in April, Geri from our favourite champagne house will bring some fizz to the dinner table!
