Tasting Events

Verzon House Cocktail Masterclass Tasting Events Championing Local Produce From our pedigree Hereford beef through to our local beers, ciders & our own single estate Chase Spirits

Local Food Hero Tasting Nights

Thursday Nights from 7pm-8.30pm (arrival 6.30 recommended)

Introducing our new tasting parlour with a series of Autumn tasting events for guests and neighbours.

All inclusive £25.00 includes tastings and wine or beer pairings

We invite you to meet the producers, Verzon’s Food Heroes whose produce we love to work with.

Verzon House is working with resident ‘Foodscapes’ on an Autumn series of tasting evenings where we invite you to find out more about the foods produced in our local area.
This is an opportunity to go deeper and learn about how to taste, what to pair with your favourite foods and even how to try things at home.

The evenings will involve tasting the producer’s food or drink, comparing with other drinks or food and a very informal talk on the producer’s craft, with leading questions and conversations between ‘Foodscape’ Director Jayne Bradley who has been teaching cookery and kitchen insights for over 10 years.

If the tasting makes you hungry, you can choose to stay and eat in the bar or restaurant after the event.
