Renishaw Hall vineyard teams up with Tideswell School of Food

“I cook with wine, sometimes I even add it to the food.”

W.C. Fields

You no longer have to cross the English Channel to enjoy the best food and wine Europe has to offer.

It’s available right here, in the heart of England’s Peak District National Park.

As part of its acclaimed Culinary Adventures range, Tideswell School of Food has teamed up with the English Wine Project and the stunning Renishaw Hall to offer a unique food and wine experience in the poetic Peak District.

Interest in English wine has never been so strong and when combined with the best in regional cooking it really is something to behold.

We’d love you to come along to Tideswell, nestled in the heart of the picturesque Peak District, on Friday, July 26 and see exactly why.

Kieron Atkinson at Renishaw Hall vineyard in Derbyshire is rightly among the elite of English wine producers with the on-site vineyard he manages producing award-winning sparkling and white wines from grapes grown on north Derbyshire soil.

Tideswell School of Food, a cork’s throw from the Renishaw vineyard, is offering a full day course which will give an unrivalled insight into the production of English wine with Kieron, including a taste of the unique Derbyshire wines, followed by an afternoon of cookery, creating a delicious three course dinner under the guidance of the school’s professional chef tutor.

You’ll travel to Renishaw Hall vineyard where you will learn all about the vineyard seasons, the cycle of the vine and tips on grape growing.

Renishaw Hall’s vineyard was planted by current owner Alexandra Sitwell’s father, the late Sir Reresby Sitwell, in 1972, and until 1986, it was certified as the most northerly vineyard in the world at 53 degrees 18 minutes north.

But the best bit is that the theory will then be followed by a detailed tasting of English wines and information on how these wines are produced in the vineyard along with a light lunch.

After lunch you will head back to the School of Food for an afternoon of cookery. As a group you will work with the chef tutor to create a delicious three-course dinner to which Renishaw Wine will be the perfect accompaniment.

At the end of the cookery session, you will head to the dining room where you can enjoy the fruits of your labour along with three of the best wines produced at Renishaw Hall.

This course will start at 10am and finish at 7pm. But you’ll never want to leave.
