|

Victoria Moore 3.jpgwith the Telegraph's wine editor, Victoria Moore

How to drink your way out of a rut:

the best autumn wines this year and food to go with them.

 

You will taste and drink at least six of Victoria's current favourite wines, paired with a series of autumnal dishes cooked by Anna. You will learn how food changes wine, how to plan pairings for autumnal dinners, and how to drink extremely well without spending a fortune.  To finish we will enjoy a drink currently on its way back into fashion - port - with treats to match.

 

You will leave with a full stomach, a better understanding of food and wine pairing, and plenty of affordable ideas to fill your autumn wine rack.
