Why Cheese and Sparkling Wine is a Match Made in Heaven
We’re always on the lookout for new ways to enjoy our delicious cheddar, and we’re happy to share our latest discovery with you – cheese and bubbles! Our delicious Vintage Organic Cheddar goes very nicely with Prosecco.
Prosecco, and other sparkling wine, is perfect with many cheeses because the bubbles cut through the creaminess. Although very different – the dry, bubbly prosecco in one hand and the rich maturity of Godminster’s Vintage Organic Cheddar in the other – they just work.
People have been enjoying cheese and wine together for a long time, so why not sparkling wine and cheese? Sparkling wine brings a refreshing change to the table and it’s the bubbles that help make it a perfect partner, balancing out the creaminess of our cheddar.
Enjoy the two together just because, or how about a perfect Champagne Breakfast with a grilled cheese sandwich, or our tasty Godminster cheesy pancakes? Mother’s Day is just around the corner and the mothers in the office agree that a thoughtful brunch would be the perfect start to the day, and something children can do with just a little help.
Just in time for Mother’s Day gift ideas, we have a brand-new gift set to share with you! It’s our Prosecco & Cheese Gift Set, which comes with a 200g Vintage Organic Cheddar, a 200g Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar and a 200ml bottle of Il Colle Prosecco.
Oenophiles amongst you will be pleased to learn that Il Colle has a fruity bouquet that is dry and well-balanced. It’s a frizzante wine, semi-sparkling, in a straw yellow colour, with a greenish hue, best served chilled.
Il Colle comes from a family tradition, with the Ceshin family having produced wine in San Pietro di Feletto in Treviso since 1978. Il Colle shares Godminster’s values of respect for the land, sustainability, innovation and co-operation.
We’re excited about our new gift set! The challenge we set to you is to let us know which you prefer with your perfectly chilled glass of bubbles – the Vintage Organic Cheddar, or the Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar?
