Wine, cheese, cider or ale tastings

Still keeping things wild, the Wild Weald Tasting and Challenge is an exploration of the region’s finest ‘live’ and unprocessed drinks and cheese.

The tastings include all the Taste of the Vine elements that guarantee interaction and entertainment, with a level of local storytelling that brings the region to life through its tastes.

Francis hosts the tastings choosing only the finest of the area’s sparkling wines, single orchard ciders, real ales and artisan cheeses, or a combination of choice.


Your guests will be given a set of skills at the outset – pointers on how to spot elements within the cheeses and drinks (such as: milk types, cheese age, and methods of production for cheeses; grape type, age and quality for sparkling wines, etc.) before competing in a range of tasting rounds. In between rounds, Francis will entertain with anecdotes, quick-fire quizzes, and stories from over twenty five years of presenting and making fermented food and drink.

Wild Weald's Single Tree Ciders

One of Wild Weald’s projects is to revive an ancient tradition of cider making from our native apple variety and guests have the chance of tasting the results of our trials. If your event is run within our home woodland, guests may have the opportunity to taste them beneath the trees that bore the fruit.

Staged at any location UK-wide or online
