Enogastronomy – Cheese and Prosecco

30th March 2023

Finding the very best British Cheese is not always an easy task to complete, sometimes you need a helping hand in finding the gems hidden in the British countryside, so with assistance from The Cheese Collective, we’ve partnered to bring you a delicious Cheese and Prosecco pairing, utilising one of Villa Sandi’s wonderful Proseccos to enhance the flavours of the local cheese.

Villa Sandi

Villa Sandi produces what seems to be an endless supply of Prosecco, without ever compromising on quality, no matter what bottle you decide to pick up, especially including their outstanding Gold Medal Winning Rosé Prosecco, you will always receive a memorable experience,

Located in the picturesque region of Prosecco, Villa Sandi has had a foothold in the region since 1622, thanks to their Palladian-style Villa located among the green hills of the Marca Trevigiana. The Moretti Polegato family, for several generations, have dedicated their time to producing and sharing their wines and Proseccos around the world.

You can explore The Sparkling Wines of Villa Sandi right here on Glass of Bubbly to see what else they have to offer.

The Cheese Collective

“The UK has some of the best cheese makers in the world, and we pride ourselves on being distinctly British.”

The Cheese Collective prides themselves on finding the best British Cheese and delivering them freshly cut and chilled to your door, all in sustainable packaging.

We all love discovering new cheese, and it’s one of The Cheese Collectives’ favourite activities, the idea was, although your local supermarket could have a fine selection of cheese to choose from, the bulk of the British Cheese industry is unknown to the public, so The Cheese Collective has dedicated their time to helping you discover the British Cheese industry.

Bath Soft Cheese & Prosecco – “White floral and green pear flesh coat the creamy cheese, brushing past, but not overly combining, they both have respect and allow each to display their character.”

Bath Blue & Prosecco – “The pairing adds a nice soft yellow fruit expression followed by an increasing savoury, nutty taste.”

Keen’s Cheddar & Prosecco – “The Prosecco is much stronger than the cheese, it neutralises the flavours allowing for a whisper from the cheese at the close.”

Gouda with Cumin & Prosecco – “The Cumin flavour certainly appears and offers its voice in character, the Prosecco enters and doesn’t overpower, it feels as like it’s reading the room and figures out quickly that the Cumin is the star of the show so feeds it some subtle characters of white floral and white fruits, enhancing the cumin characters, never taking the spotlight from the cheese.”

Gorwydd Caerphilly & Prosecco – “A nice tussle between the Prosecco and Cheese, allowing for a wonderful creamy, savoury delight at the close.”

Westcombe Red & Prosecco – “A to and fro between the Prosecco and Cheese, although both taste wonderful, it’s an unrelaxing pairing, best enjoyed separately.”

Harrogate Blue & Prosecco – “A calming pairing, with a subtle creamy texture initially, followed by an increasing expression from the cheese with notes of white floral from the Prosecco.”
