Thought that port was the only match for cheese? One Dartmoor deli and drinks specialist is changing the cheese and wine matching game – one hand-picked bottle at a time.
Plonking a supermarket-bought bog-standard port on the table when the cheeseboard makes an appearance is a wasted opportunity, according to the connoisseurs at Wildmoor Fine Food & Drink in Bovey Tracey.
Founder Jeremy Clevett knows a thing or two about nosing a great vintage (wine not cheese, heaven forbid), and draws on his experience as a vintage winemaker in Canada and Australia to match every bottle with a ruddy good cheese (and vice-versa) at his edge-of-Dartmoor delicatessen.
For foodies who can’t make it to the bricks-and-mortar store for bespoke pairings, Jeremy has curated some of his favourite matches (in gorgeous wooden gift boxes) which are available online. The British Cheesemonger’s Box, for example, features three cheeses from three corners of the UK and a bottle of Bon Vallon Sur Lie, a South African unoaked Chardonnay.
To be in with a chance of winning just answer the following question …
Which three cheeses are featured in the British Cheesemonger’s Box?
