Multi Award-Winning Products:

We’re delighted to say our Vintage Organic Cheddar was named at The Nation’s Favourite Organic Product in 2019 at the BOOM Awards hosted by the Soil Association thanks to votes from the general public, making it the ideal addition to our wine and cheese gift set!

We make our cheddar to a traditional 90-year-old recipe and mature it for up to 12 months. After that, we select the very best cheese to make into one of our award-winning truckles. It has a rich depth of flavour with a smooth texture. All of our cheese is made using pasteurised milk and is certified organic by the Soil Association. They contain no artificial preservatives, and they are suitable for vegetarians.

We make our British Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar to the same recipe, using the same cheese as our Vintage Organic Cheddar before cold-smoking it over sustainably-sourced oak clippings. It has won many awards, perhaps most notably Gold at the World Cheese Awards 2018 in the Best Smoked Cheese category.

Our Black Truffle Vintage Organic Cheddar won Gold at the prestigious International Cheese Awards and most recently won Gold at the Virtual Cheese Awards in July 2020.

Wine and Cheese Gift Set FAQ

Why do cheese and wine go together?

Wine and cheese have been paired together for quite some time thanks to the way they complement each other. Research has indicated that it’s all about the “mouthfeel” of the wine and cheese together, as the two balance each other out. It has been found that high protein, “fatty” foods are perfect for balancing out the taste of tannin which is found in wine. This is why our wine and cheese gift set is perfect for any cheese lover!

What goes with wine and cheese?

Whether you’re having a cheese and wine party or looking for something to go along with a wine and cheese gift set, here are some snacks that go great with wine and cheese: 

  • Marinated olives
  • Fresh fruit – grapes and apples and berries work particularly well!
  • Dried fruits, such as apricots
  • Nuts, such as almonds and walnuts
  • Crisps and crackers 
  • Dark chocolate 
  • Cured meats, such as sliced prosciutto and salami

When is national wine and cheese day?

The National Wine and Cheese Day is on July 25th and is the perfect time to treat yourself and your loved ones to a wine and cheese gift set or throw a cheese and wine party!

How to pair wine and cheese

Here are some tips on how to pair wine and cheese: 

  • Soft cheese will pair well with sparkling wine or white wine that has a light oak flavour. 
  • Pair wine and cheese that have equal intensities 
  • Aged and stronger cheeses pair well with full bodied wine
  • Sweet wines are great for accompanying blue/particularly smelly cheeses as this balances the flavours and also helps to make it taste lovely and creamy!
  • If you are not sure which cheese to pair with your wine, you can always opt for a nutty cheese as this can usually compliment both red and white wines. 

Here at Godminster, we carefully select our wine so that it pairs beautifully with our award-winning organic cheese, making our cheese and wine gift set range ideal for special occasions such as an anniversary, christmas or birthdays. 

What to put in a cheese and wine hamper

A wine and cheese gift set is the perfect present for any cheese lover! The cheese and wine you decide to pair up in the hamper should be ones which will complement each other (please see previous FAQ) and you could also look to add some other items that will work well with the cheese and wine, such as: crackers, chutneys or a material gift, such as a cheeseboard and accompanying cheese knives. 

If you’re looking for a wine and cheese gift set, why not browse our hampers and gift sets which have been lovingly created here at Godminster. 

What is organic cheese?

Organic cheese is produced without artificial preservatives, harmful pesticides or added growth hormones. Furthermore, the pasteurised milk used to make the cheese is from an organic farm where cows eat organically grown pasture grass. This more natural diet for the cows also means that organic cheese has more nutritional value. All of the cheese sold at Godminster, including in our wine and cheese gift set and hampers are organic and certified by the Soil Association, so you can rest assured that our cheese is of high quality.

How to store me

Our cheeses are organic and contain no preservatives so we recommend refrigeration (or storage in a cheese drawer or cheese pantry if you are lucky enough to have one!).   Remove the cheese from the fridge an hour before serving to allow it to warm to room temperature and bring out all the natural flavours.

Wine can be stored somewhere cool and dark, the larder is perfect.

*Please note, all of our Oak-Smoked Vintage Organic Cheddar is vacuum packed and then hand-wrapped in muslin cloth. Please see FAQ for full details.
