Kick off the festival in local style and join wine-expert Zoe Coombs for an evening of wine-tasting, alongside perfectly matched local cheeses from the famous Lye Cross farm.


Born and brought up in Barrow Gurney, Zoe Coombs is head of Wine Category Development for Bristol based wine suppliers Matthew Clark. Zoe worked for many years "front of house" in the on-licence trade.

As a result, she realised that finding a customer the perfect wine for their meal, or just their taste, gave her immense pleasure. In her present role she can continue to do this, but with not quite such unsociable hours.

We are grateful to the Flax Bourton Parochial Church Council for the use of the beautiful 12th century church to give the event the atmospheric surroundings it deserves.
