A few of our favourite cheese and wine pairings
The light elegance of our Pinot Noir pairs perfectly with less richly flavoured foods like creamy brie such as our Bath Soft. We recommend combining this with a savoury crispbread and a fruity but tangy chutney for the perfect pairing.
The balanced, fresh acidity of our Cuvée Rosé cuts through fatty foods beautifully. The fruit and brioche notes make this wine the perfect pairing for rich cheddar. Combine with a savoury crispbread with subtle flavours and a fruity chutney.
Blue cheeses, such as our Molecomb Blue or our Brighton Blue, pair perfectly with our delicate and fresh Lychgate Rosé. Notes of red fruit lead to a refreshing palate with undertones of vanilla, which is a great match with the salty tangy flavours in blue cheese.
