100% Arneis. Roberto Sarotto's delicious earthy, light-textured classic wine with a light 'fizz' on the nose. Fresh and floral, with a delicate richness and slight bitterness of almond on the finish. Lovely as an aperitif, as well as accompanying white meats, fish & fresh cheese. Beautifully appointed estate allowing vines the best light and warmth.
Az Ag Villa Spinosa, Negrar in Valpolicella, Verona
Corvina Veronese & Corvinone. The vineyard is situated on the Figari area of the estate, a natural terrace above the Valpolicella Classica area located on the side of the Colle Masua that slopes down towards Marano Valpolicella. Being a Superiore, it is elegant & fragrant; a little austere but very agreeable. Notes of preserved fruit, vanilla & spice. More complex than the standard Classico, it still has the fresh and lively style, making it a natural pairing for soft cheese.
150g. Made by English Preserves in South London.
A rich dense paste, perfect for pairing with cheese. Made by English Preserves from locally sourced fruit, there is a delicate acidity that marries naturally to a range of cheese.
Quince paste, slow-cooked to become concentrated, similar to a coarse-textured jelly. Serve with hard ewe's milk cheeses, fresh or aged goat's or blues.
From Sacchi Tartufi in Marche, Italy.
Acacia honey with chopped white truffles. Perfect with a range of cheeses – from creamy goats to spicier and more complex aged cheeses.
Throughout the year our kitchen brings down from the shop floor the loveliest seasonal ingredients and makes jams, marmalades & chutneys to last us through the colder months. Made in small batches, the ingredients change frequently throughout the year to ensure the freshest produce goes into our chutneys. Gorgeous alongside a cheese board but perhaps best on a simple sandwich with a slice of farmhouse cheddar!
