elwood winter tasting 15 November 2012: the finishing touches to a festival of the senses

November 8, 2012

On Thursday 15th November, elwood will once again be taking over the reception and conference room at Lighthouse Arts in Kensington Street – just off North Road in Brighton – for our Winter Tasting.

We’re delighted to have use of this glorious space in which to showcase the best of our autumn and winter wines, and have some exciting plans to make this a very memorable event.

Haven’t booked yet?  Perhaps this can persuade you.

Not only will you be able to sample and buy 40 wines for your Christmas drinking or as gifts, you will also have a chance to try some fabulous Sussex cheeses selected by La Cave a Fromage and exceptional hand-made chocolates from Chocoholly.

We will publish the wine selections shortly, but here are the cheeses that you can look forward to trying:

Golden Cross Goat’s Cheese, Greenacres Farm, Whitesmith

Golden Cross Flower Marie, Greenacres Farm, Whitesmith

Lord of the Hundreds, The Traditional Cheese Dairy, Stonegate  

Sussex Camembert, Alsop and Walker, Five Ashes, Mayfield

Burwash Rose, The Traditional Cheese Dairy, Stonegate

Sussex Blue, Alsop and Walker, Five Ashes, Mayfield

For all you fine chocolate lovers out there, Holly Caulfield from Chocoholly will be preparing a myriad of exceptional organic hand-made chocolates to tempt you with on the 15th.  Look forward to sampling fresh truffles, salt caramels, champagne truffles, vanilla and nutmeg truffles, Madagascan truffles, chilli & amaretto truffles – all made with fresh cream and no artificial flavours or syrups.

Have you ever tried raw chocolate made without sugar? As well as 98% chocolate buttons, 85% chocolate bars, special Christmas bars with candied orange & almonds with dark organic chocolate.  Holly will also bring along some gift packs for Christmas and Chocoholly workshop vouchers for children and adults to enjoy a deluxe chocolate making experience at their Hove shop

Both David Deaves, manager of La Cave a Fromage in Hove and Holly Caulfield, owner of Chocoholly, will be on hand thoughout the tasting to talk you through their local produce.

There will also be an opportunity to taste and purchase some bottles of the new Beaujolais vintage – this date coincides with Beaujolais Nouveau day, so be the first to try the 2012 from Georges Dubeouf.

All the above for only £30 per person and with discounts being offered for orders placed on the night,  you may even earn the cost of your ticket back!

It’s not too late to book our winter tasting on the 15th November, so don’t miss out!

Karl and elwood’s team of experts will also be on hand throughout the evening to talk about the wines too and help you buy your ideal bottles ready for winter and the Christmas festivities ahead.

Hope we see you there!
