A Tasty Night Out Brings Sell Out Success

Wednesday Sep 27, 2023

Members flocked to Chelmsford this week as they gathered for a Cheese & Wine Tasting Evening at the Quadrant department store.

Hosted by Essex Wine School’s Neil Bull, the sold-out event allowed members to sample five different Co-op wines and cheeses, with the best pairing voted to be Co-op Irresistible Malbec (winner of a 2022 Decanter World Wine Award) and the Co-op Irresistible Belton Farm Vintage Red Fox, an aged Red Leicester cheese with “a delightfully unexpected crunch”.

Co-op Irresistible Malbec  75cl |  £9.40 On offer from 27/09/23—17/10/23 for £8.50

Co-op Irresistible Belton Farm Vintage Red Fox 200g |  £4

Feedback for the event was overwhelmingly positive, with members enjoying the “fun, informative presentation and light-hearted social atmosphere”. The evening itself was planned after the success of a Wine & Chocolate Tasting that took place earlier this year as part of Fairtrade Fortnight.

Other pairings included; Co-op Irresistible Prosecco with Co-op Somerset Brie, Codorniu Albarino with Co-op Irresistible Manchego, Co-op Irresistible Gavi Broglia with Co-op Wensleydale, and Co-op Irresistible Fairtrade Pinotage with Co-op Extra Mature Cheddar.

Another event is planned for early next year.
