Impress your date with ultimate wine tasting experience where you will indulge in 10 different wines and three spectacular courses from Malmaison. Food and wine were meant to go together – and this tasting event proves it beyond any doubt. A lovely glass of fizz on arrival will get you in the mood, as will the gorgeous surroundings of the Ember Lounge at Manchester’s Malmaison. You’ll be taken through a wine matching masterclass from Northern Wine School, learning what makes food and wine work so well together.
You’ll enjoy three magnificent courses with two different wines to accompany each course so you can increase your knowledge. There’s also tea and coffee to round the afternoon off as well as your wine-matching card which includes all the wines you tried should you wish to find them again. This is a really popular event and an absolutely super treat for your date or to give as a present.
