Poke Bottles & Bites

Treat you and your family or housemates to a delicious cheese + wine tasting in your garden or at home.   We source delicious natural wines and local cheeses which are matched (with tasting notes if you want to be really fancy!) for your ultimate cheese & wine night.

Natural Wine is farmed organically (biodynamically) and made without adding or removing anything in the cellar. No additives or processing aids are used, and ‘intervention’ in the naturally occurring fermentation process is kept to a minimum. As such neither fining nor (tight) filtration are used. The result is a living wine – wholesome and full of naturally occurring microbiology.
