A modern twist on your cheese and wine hamper

Original, classic, extraordinary. Words we would use describe The Elton cheese and fine wine box, our modern twist on a traditional cheese and wine hamper. Nothing beats sitting by a cosy fireplace enjoying a delicious glass of vino and a slab of cheese and we've provided the tasting notes so you can run your own cheese and wine night at home. 

There is nothing wrong with going to bed with cheese. People should be very free with cheese, they shouldn't draw the line at goats.

Elton John, ish

The Perfect Pairings

St Helena with Pouilly Fume

A British St Nectaire style cheese paired with a refined Sauvignon Blanc

More

Made with raw Montbeliarde cow's milk, travelling mere metres from milking parlour to VAT, this is a brand new cheese, made in the style of a St Nectaire. It has that absolutely critical 'squidge' that any great St Nectaire should have, milky slightly nutty sweetness, and then a burst of earthiness from the rind.

Paired with Pouilly Fume, this gives a cosy and elegant pairing. Pouilly Fume is a 2018 vintage white from Loire, 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

Back

Mrs Kirkham's Lancashire & Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh

A phenomenal Lancashire paired with a unique peachy white wine.

More

Mrs Kirkham's, now made by Graham Kirkham, is the cheese equivalent of a critically endangered species. Its texture is utterly unique, similar to the base of a cheesecake, and simultaneously carries a combination of sharp creme fraiche and rich butter.

Paired with Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh,  this gives tropical, almost grapefruit flavours. Pacherenc-du-Vic-Bilh is a 2017 Vintage from Sud-Ouest, 80% Petit Courbu and 20% Manseng.

Back

Bath Blue and Carmènère

A beautifully crafted blue with a rich and robust red.

More

Bath Blue has a seriously strong pedigree and is made in the style of a Stilton, but on a smaller scale. The painstaking hand-crafted process to create this cheese shows when you taste it. 

Matched with Carmènère this results in a comforting pairing to finish. Carmènère is a 1019 vintage from Valle de Colchagua, 100% Carmènère.

A great idea as a gift for those who have 'everything'.

Liked the pairing - especially when designed for two people. As an anniversary gift it was perfect.
