Here’s a seductive proposition: enter our competition and you could be the winner of a Valentine’s Hamper which has been expertly curated by the connoisseurs at The Bottle in Newquay.
The indulgent bundle includes everything you’ll need to serve a spellbinding cheese and wine supper for two.
Kick off the evening in style by popping a bottle of Sea Change Provence Rosé, or clink flutes of sparkling Llopart Brut Reserva.
Whichever you open first, your wine of choice will pair well with a duo of heart-flutteringly good cheeses: Winslade (a cross between camembert and vacherin) which is crafted in Hampshire and a Cornish Kern (an alpine-style cheese with a caramel nutty flavour from Lynher Dairies in Cornwall). The cheeseboard is completed with pink peppercorn crackers and the fruity kick of peach and apple chutney.
The finale of your romantic soirée will be harnessing the legendary powers of chocolate in the form of decadent salted caramel truffles.
Compiling these artisan delights is Rob Palmer and Toyah Marshall of The Bottle, a new eatery, deli and wine bar in the backstreets of Newquay. Inspired by visits to France, the couple specialise in sociable dining and their exciting new venture is a great destination for date nights, catch ups with friends and family suppers. Everything on the menu is available from the deli counter where you can pick up all you need for a delectable cheese or meat board for feasting at home (there’s also an online shop for those further away from Newquay).
Wine is Rob and Toyah’s particular passion and they offer a carefully selected collection, ranging from biodynamic orange wine through rich Bordeaux to sparkling Cabernet Franc.
There’s also a refillable wine service giving regulars the chance to enjoy some of France’s finest wines in an eco-friendly and cost-effective way. So don’t be a stupid cupid … enter our competition for a chance to enjoy a dreamy cheese and wine hamper à deux.
