Cheese & wine tasting – 19 October

Last week, both morning and evening students gathered together for an extra special evening activity of wine and cheese tasting! The sun was out, the wine was flowing, the cheese was disappearing fast and it was Friday – perfect!

We had a range of different cheeses to choose from – Brie, Goats cheese, Edam, Camembert, Gouda, Cheddar, Tasmanian Feta, Spring onion and chive cream cheese, apricot cream cheese… all accompanied by a range of different crackers. For wine, we had a range of reds – Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a crisp Pinot Grigio and a soft Rose.

We all had a lot of fun and it was great for all the classes to mingle together, chat about all things cheesy and get ready for the weekend ahead!
