Cheese and Wine
Cheese and wine are a marriage made in heaven, harmonising the perfect balance between the sweetness and acidity of wine and the rich and creamy taste of cheese. Here, at Godminster, we are proud to offer award-winning cheese, created in the heart of Somerset that pairs perfectly with your favourite wine, bubbly or port.
If you are looking for a present for a cheese and wine lover, we offer a range of gift sets ideal for any occasion. Our signature wine and cheese gift sets and hamper boxes are ideal for both personal and corporate gifts and are a great way to say thank you or to surprise fellow cheese enthusiasts this season.
If you are looking for delicious and organic cheese to add to a bespoke hamper or are on the lookout for a centrepiece for your cheeseboard, shop our Black Truffle Cheese range and Red Chilli range for something truly special. You can also find inspiration in our cheese recipes and get creative in the kitchen. We also offer cheese gift sets featuring biscuits, chutney, port and prosecco for something a bit different and unique.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHY DO WINE AND CHEESE GO TOGETHER?
Here at Godminster, we believe wine and cheese are gastronomic soulmates. The acidity and tannins of the wine cut through the creaminess of the cheese, creating a taste sensation that is rarely matched by any other food and beverage pairing.
WHAT GOES WITH WINE AND CHEESE?
When it comes to finding the perfect accompaniment to your wine and cheese, the good news is the world is your oyster (or cheeseboard). Chutneys or jams are always a great idea – why not try Godminster’s own Beetroot and Apple Chutney which goes splendidly with our Vintage Bruton Beauty? We would also recommend:
- Olives and pickles
- Fruit such as apples, grapes or dried apricots
- Cured meats such as prosciutto or chorizo
- Nuts – spicy, salty or plain
- Bread, biscuits or crackers – such as Godminster’s Golden Honey and Oat Biscuits
Remember that half the fun is in experimenting with different combinations until you find the right one for you!
ARE THE WINE AND CHEESE AND GIFT SETS SUITABLE FOR VEGETARIANS?
Yes, all our products are suitable for vegetarians. We only use microbial rennet (vegetarian) in our cheeses rather than animal rennet.
HOW SHOULD I STORE THE CHEESE WHEN I RECEIVE MY GIFT SET?
Once delivered, store your cheese in the fridge straight away to maintain freshness. Allow it to come up to room temperature an hour before serving to bring out all the lovely flavours.
IS THERE AN AGE RESTRICTION ON THE WINE AND CHEESE GIFT BOXES?
You must be 18 years old or over to purchase these products, with the exception of our Non-alcoholic Christmas Cheese and Chutney Hamper.
HOW ARE THE CHEESE AND WINE SETS SHIPPED?
Our cheese and wine gift sets and hampers are sent via a third-party express delivery courier who will notify you when your products have been shipped. While we ensure products are in perfect condition and stored appropriately prior to shipping, we can’t control storage after dispatch.
We dispatch orders Monday to Thursday and usually deliver Tuesday to Friday. To ensure a smooth delivery process, we kindly ask that when placing your order, you select a delivery day when someone will be present to accept and sign for the package upon its arrival.
