A cellar full of wine calls for an impressive selection of cheese. Bringing together London’s finest sommelier Andre Luis Teixeira Martins of luxury 5-star boutique property, St James’s Hotel & Club, Mayfair and Britain’s leading cheesemonger, Paxton & Whitfield, enjoy an insight into the world of fine wine and cheese that will guarantee you a captive audience round the dinner table.

On 16th May from 11:30am – 2:30pm, take part in this informative and interactive masterclass hosted in the hotel’s chic private dining rooms. With barrels of knowledge, join the experts and learn how to match these two gastronomic delights, making the most of each mouthful.

To follow, put your skills and knowledge to the test and settle in for a suitably seasonal three-course cheese-based lunch with matching wines, courtesy of Executive Chef William Drabble of Michelin starred restaurant, Seven Park Place.

Priced at £99 per person, it is a small price to pay to never again be apprehensive in choosing from a wine list or a wedge of cheese from the counter. Places are limited – book now to reserve your spot on 020 7316 1616 or email
