As Burgundy prices become stratospheric, the Macon region to the South has become a source of some absolute beauties for a fraction of the price. Chateau Messey and it's 89 hectares was purchased by Marc Dumont in the early 1990's and has gone from strength to strength. It is under organic conversion and the wines really express their origin with pinpoint purity. Chardonnay is just made for cheese, and this has subtle spice, ripe peachy flavours and crystalline acidity to cut through the rounded ripe palate

Our house wine selection has been curated by Alistair Cooper, Master of Wine. We're big believers that the importance of great wine when it comes to great cheese cannot be understated, and as such have selected these wines after hours and hours of scrutiny (and fun), to be all rounders for pairing with our cheese.

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a padded climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the wines and cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your cheesegeek delivery!
