Hi, I’m Gilbert, a fully qualified wine educator. I write and contribute about wine to the likes of Sky News and have worked in France and Italy directly with winemakers - I bring my own brand of eccentricity to wine experiences in London.

The experience

Why does Goat’s cheese go well with Sauvignon, or Roquefort with dessert wines? Join me and find out on this experience. Cheese and wine tasting has always been popular, and it is not by chance that they say the best way to drink wine is with cheese - they complement each other perfectly!

Suitable for anyone from beginner to enthusiast, the tasting will feature 8 fine wines and 4 matched cheeses, and will happen at the delightful Bistro Côte Brasserie, with excellent artisanal unpasteurized cheeses.

We wanted to thank you very much for the wine tasting on Saturday. Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge of wine in an informative and fun way, without it being stuffy. The cheese was excellent and the venue was great too. I cannot recommend this wine tasting experience enough. Worth every penny and more. Thanks Gilbert for making our London stay even more incredible!

The day totally surpassed our expectations. It was fun, informative, the cheese was wonderful (not to mention the wine!!) and just a great atmosphere all day, which simply whizzed by. Gilbert could not have done a better job. He presented everything in a totally understandable way with no pretention and a great sense of humour. I would recommend this wine tasting experience to anyone - and for what you get, it is remarkable value.

Had a lovely day with Gilbert at Browns, and around the area. He was incredibly knowledgeable but also great fun, which made the whole experience relaxed and informal - I didn't feel embarrassed shouting out 'green pepper' when tasting a Sauvignon Blanc and now know how to tell if a wine has 'good legs'! Not all wines to my taste but really useful to learn why I liked some and not others. Cheeses and atmosphere were also good - a fine way to spend a rainy day in London!

What a great way to spend a Saturday. Gilbert was incredibly knowledgeable and his enthusiasm was catching. We picked up lots of hints and tips throughout afternoon, tasted fantastic wines and cheeses, all in a very relaxed and unpretentious environment.
