Everything You Need To Know About Our Galentine's Day Event This February 13

Wine and cheese and chocolate. Could it get any better?

It's the best day of the year!

Galentine's Day exists to help you celebrate the important women in your life ahead of the most loved-up day of the year. We can't think of a better way to enjoy Galentine's Day than to gather up your girls and treat them to an evening of cheese, wine and cocktails. 

Luckily for you, we're hosting the perfect Galentine's Day event In association with Irish Dairy The Complete Natural, Sheridans Cheesemongers, Villa Maria and McGuigan Wines at Café en Seine on Thursday, February 13th and we have limited tickets available here.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT?

To show our appreciation for all-things Galentine's this year, we're hosting a cheese and wine evening in Café en Seine.

Tickets – which cost €15 – will get you Cointreau cocktails and canapés on arrival, cheese and wine tastings throughout and a goodie bag to take home with you.

Once everyone has enjoyed their welcome drink, we'll get down to the best part of the evening: a cheesy chat with rugby player and winner of Love Island 2019, Greg O'Shea and television presenter and social media star James Patrice.

WHO WILL BE THERE?

Amy Heffernan, editor of Irish Tatler, and Kate Barry from premium drinks distributor Barry & Fitzwilliam will there to guide you through the wine and cheese pairings, while special guests Greg O'Shea and James Patrice keep us entertained.

WILL THERE BE CHEESE?

Yes – and plenty of it. 

We've teamed up with Sheridans Cheese so that you can taste some of the most delicious cheese on the night.

We'll be trying 15 Fields, Irish cheddar-style cheese; Brie de Meaux Donge, a traditional French Brie; Fourme d’ambert, a creamy French blue cheese; and Dorrus.

WILL THERE BE WINE?

Yes – and plenty of it. 

We've also teamed up teaming up with Villa Maria and McGuigan Wines so that you can also drink some gorgeous wine on the night.

We'll be trying Villa Maria Reserve Waiarau Sauvignon Blanc and Villa Maria Cellar Select Pinot Noir. You'll also get to taste McGuigan Black Label Chardonnay and McGuigan Black Label Malbec.

Is There A Goodie Bag?

HOW MUCH ARE TICKETS?

What Is Cheese Your Way?

This exciting event is a part of the Cheese Your Way campaign launched earlier this year by the National Dairy Council in partnership with the European Milk Forum. Cheese Your Way is an EU-funded multi-country campaign that aims to encourage people to cook with, eat and learn more about a diverse range of European cheeses.

NDC is passionate about quality dairy and promoting its nutritional benefits, so they were the perfect partner for our upcoming cheesy events. If you want to find out more about this EU campaign, called Cheese Your Way, click here.
