Staff and residents at Barchester’s Cumberland Grange care home in Exeter had a fantastic time celebrating National c on July 25th, surely one of the best days of the year!

The activities team and Chefs, got together to source some local cheeses, as well as some more exotic ones, and paired them with all sorts of wines.   The residents had great fun trying different styles of wine with the different cheeses along with relishes, chutneys, grapes, plus a range of breads, biscuits and crackers.  There was a lot of debate over which flavour combination was best, it was very hard to decide on a winner!

General Manager Julie said: “Everyone was so excited to hear there was a National Cheese & Wine Day, what a brilliant excuse to get lots of delicious cheeses and wines in to sample.  It is such a classic combination, our residents had a fantastic time tasting all the different cheeses and wines on offer.”
