More cheese than you can handle (or eat) at Dovehouse this Friday

April 11, 2014

Welcoming back Nico from Curds & Whey.

Fine, artisan cheeses will be available to taste and buy from 1pm until 7pm at Connolly's Dovehouse store.

Also, if meat is your thing, Nigel (The Pie Creator) will also be here with his very varied selection of pasties, pies, sausage rolls etc.

Don't forget to ask for a wine recommendation!

Favourite red of the moment is Juan Gil's "4 Meses" Monastrell for only £8.99 a bottle

Layers of lush, spicy plum and cherry flavours. Refined and elegant wine with 4 months ageing in oak barrels... hence the name!

Or, if you like a really special white with your goat's cheese salad, why not try the new "Naiades" Verdejo from Rueda's Bodegas Naia. for £20.50 a bottle.

Outstanding Spanish barrel fermented white giving toasty, spice aromas and a plush textured palate of peach, tangerine and tropical fruits.

Years ago, before very clever folk started coming up with all manner of means to keep open bottles of wine (reasonably) fresh, half bottles of wine were a thing. Growers would routinely bottle a modest proportion of their harvest into half bottles and restaurants in particular, would carry them, largely for the benefit of solo diners
