City/Town: Zug
Event Type: Special Promotion
Location: Moevenpick Wine shop. Baarerstrasse 141
Price: Free entry

Port & Stilton (in a glass and on an oat cake - not mixed together) are the perfect English Christmas treat and Saturday 19th December my good friend Urs Schwerzmann at the Moevenpick Wein Keller in Zug has invited me over to offer a tasting of my Cropwell Bishop Stilton (both standard and Organic/BIO - there is a big difference!) with some of his port and 30 or 40 other wines. I'll also have about 20 other British & Irish cheeses to taste including 3 or 4 cheddars.

Wander through the wine aisles helping yourself to wine and cheese - it's all free (you can buy some to take home if you like ) and enjoy the jovial company. Hope to see you there! (if you can't make it, I'll have lots of cheese tatsing packs on-line by tomorrow night and I'll also be at the Rapperswil & Luzern Christmas markets)

Grumpy, you're the cheese man... but on this point you *must* stand corrected: It's ALWAYS port & Stilton time!

I'm here again today until about 4, a bit too early for port for me so I'm sipping a rather nice Argentinian Pinot Gris. Still plenty of Stilton left but afraid I've sold out of Shropshire Blue.

Merry Christmas (hic)
