The Classic Red

From time to time we like to work with some of our foodie friends to create a perfect package, from our fruit cake and cheese combo with the Simply Delicious Cake Company, to the Triple Crown with a bottle of Poacher’s Choice, Badger ale and Godminster cheese.   This year we’ve combined some real Godminster favourites with a fantastic bottle of wine from our good friends at Yapp Brothers to create The Classic Red.

This gift will be beautifully presented in a wooden box and contain a 200g Godminster Organic Cheddar and a 200g Godminster Smoked Organic Cheddar, as well as a kilner jar of delicious Godminster Beetroot and Apple Chutney, all perfectly accompanied by a bottle of Yapp Brothers’ Côtes du Ventoux Rouge: Chateau Valcombe 2008, which was described by Simon Hoggart in the The Spectator as:

“A wine I implore you to buy. (Look into my eyes, look deep into my eyes, you will buy lots of this wine…).   It is the 2008 Château Valcombe from the Côtes du Ventoux near Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and it is absolutely luscious. It is made from the same blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault that goes into many Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines and it is much, much better than many of those. It may not have such a posh monicker, but by golly, it tries harder. A wonderful wine...”

As you can see, Simon certainly thinks it’s a classic red! So if you’re after that perfect gift for the foodie or wine lover in your life look no further.
