Get to know some of the great cheeses and cheese makers of the New Zealand Artisan Cheese scene with an on-site cheese tasting experience from The Artisan Hub.
How it works
The Artisan Hub will guide you and your guests, friends or colleagues through 10-12 New Zealand Artisan cheeses at your premise. You will learn about style, origin, and flavours and character of each of the cheeses. We will also cover what pairs well with each cheese. Tasting notes will be provided for each cheese tasted.
The cheese tasting experience is designed to be interactive, and questions and discussion with your peers is encouraged.
Your cheeses will be presented on platters for 4-5 guests each, along with crackers, pastes and cheese serving implements. At the end of the experience, you are welcome to keep any remaining cheese, paste or crackers. The Artisan Hub will discard all waste and manage clean up of platters and implements.
The Cheese Tasting Experience from The Artisan Hub will usually take between 45 minutes and an hour, with participants enjoying approx 200g of New Zealand Artisan cheese each.
The Artisan Hub will require access to your premise 1 hour before the tasting is due to begin.
A Cheese Tasting Experience from The Artisan Hub starts from $29 per person, with a minimum of 10 people required. Additional charges for travel dependant on location or enquire about our virtual cheese tastings.
A selection of cheeses will be available for purchase at the end of the tasting.
We work closely with a number of winemakers and liquor companies and can present 4-6 wines matched to the cheeses being tasted.
A standard wine pairing of 4 wines starts from $20, with a premium wine pairing starting from $30 per person.
Access to winemakers and wine representatives is available and dependent on availability.
In most cases, participants will have the option to order from the winemaker or representative after the tasting.
