Celebrating the ultimate coupling of cheese and wine, this autumn's festival not only features Master of Wine Tim Atkin, who is running tutored wine tastings, but also cheese guru Patricia Michelson and a host of chefs demonstrating their favourite cheese recipes.
New for this year is the Cheese Feast, a communal dining experience where visitors can book a Scandinavian cheese-inspired meal cooked by renowned chef and author of the Scandinavian Cookbook, Trine Hahnemann. Each dish is paired with craft beer, tea and local cherry wine.
Over 45 stalls provide visitors with the opportunity to taste artisan cheese and dairy in all its forms, including cheese macarons, grilled cheese and tartiflette. Shop for foodie gifts, choose from a selection of hot food with cheese and of course find your ideal wines from as far afield as Italy, Australia and South America.
11am to 8pm on Friday and Saturday
11am to 6pm on Sunday
Admission is free, but some tastings will be ticketed and require pre-booking and payment. A full programme and tickets is available from cheesewinefestival.com.
