On selected Summer Saturday evenings you can enjoy an excursion in the award-winning 6-wheeled Victorian carriages.

Cheese and Wine Pairing
The classic matching. Exploring the differences in cheese and wine and their flavours. The tasting will look at how they are traditionally matched alongside some interesting new matches to ponder. A talk and tutored tasting on a diverse range of cheese types exploring how they are made and why they taste different. Featuring the finest farmhouse cheeses available in the UK. The talk is by Andy Swinscoe of The Courtyard Dairy, Settle: Andy developed his expertise in traditional farm made and unpasteurised cheeses whilst working for The Fine Cheese Co. and Paxton & Whitefield (Britain’s oldest cheesemonger). In 2010 The Duchess of Northumberland awarded Andy a Queen Elizabeth Scholarship to explore the art of ‘cheese maturing’ in France. Andy finally completed his ambition and opened a cheese maturing facility and shop in Settle late last year. The Courtyard Dairy’s mantra is to champion the finest unpasteurised farm made cheeses in Europe.

The steam-hauled train leaves Embsay at 18.30.  Included in the price is First Class travel on the vintage train, and the wine & cheese tasting session.

Advance booking is essential.
