Steak and Red Wine with Fine-dining at Wood Manchester

July 10 @ 19:00 - 21:30

£27.50

Always a popular event for Manchester Wine School; a Steak and Red Wine tasting in Manchester City Centre at one of the City’s newest fine dining restaurants, the fantastic Wood.

Come enjoy a decadent evening exploring 6 different styles of red wine with a 2-course steak dinner for an extra £32.50 (RRP £47.50) payable on the night – a chance to try a most spectacular food and wine pairing.

We’ll be tasting a fabulous range of 6 different rich, juicy and full-bodied red wines from all over the world that really come to life when partnered up with a succulent steak!  From Argentinean Malbec, to classy ‘old world’ style Cabernet Sauvignon, we’ll understand why these big and bold wines pair so well with succulent steak and cheeseboards.

After a tasting of 5 red wines, you will be served an additional glass, specially selected wine by Manchester Wine School, to pair with Wood’s mouth-watering flagship sharing steak (just look at the picture!); the Tomahawk with a duo of sides, followed by a sumptuous cheeseboard, and all enjoyed in the exclusive private dining room at this new Manchester restaurant which opened late last year by MasterChef 2015 winner Simon Wood.

Please Note: In addition to the course fee of £27.50, the food cost of £32.50 will be made on the night and is passed straight to the restaurant.

Wines we’ll taste on the night

  • Argentinian Malbec from Mendoza – Lots of concentrated dark fruit, blackcurrant and cassis.
  • Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot, South Africa – A beautiful full bodied red wine with grippy tannins to match up to the steak.
  • Valpolicella Ripasso, Italy – Known as a ‘Baby Amarone’ this wine is soft and velvety.
