Your cheese will be perfectly ripe and ready to eat from the day it arrives. If you’re not planning to tuck in straight away, it is important to take good care of your cheeses until you are ready to eat them. To ensure the cheese is at its best we recommend keeping it wrapped in wax paper and stored in a separate compartment in the fridge at 8°.
Whilst we recommend eating your cheese as close to the arrival date as possible, cheese can last for up to two weeks. Generally, whole or larger pieces of cheese will last longer than smaller cuts. If wrapped correctly, some soft and blue cheese can be eaten up to 10 days after delivery and hard cheese up to 14 days. Please see the tasting notes and product descriptions for best guidelines per cheese.
Absolutely! If you are planning to share the box with more than one other person we would recommend adding some extra boxes of crackers, why not try the toast bread crackers? We also have a delicious selection of chutneys too. Truffle honey is an absolute must for any cheese and wine tasting so make sure you add one of those too!
The boxes have been specifically curated with the cheese and wine pairing in mind so they cannot be changed. You can however add additional cheeses and crackers to the set boxes. We are hoping to launch a ‘build your own box’ next year so watch this space.
We use Parcel Force for most of our deliveries, or a member of the Mouse & Grape team will hand deliver your order. Our aim is to deliver all accepted orders on either your chosen delivery date or within 3 – 5 working days from the order date to mainland addresses. Make sure you check the information you provide is correct and that someone will be there to accept the delivery and put the cheeses in the fridge.
We pack all our boxes by hand and our packaging is 100% recyclable.
This is such a tricky question! There are so many amazing pairings to choose from but if I had to pick just one cheese and wine pairing it would have to be Gorgonzola Al Cucchiaio with Soave. The exceptionally rich and creamy melt-in-your-mouth Gorgonzola is so soft it can be served with a spoon! It is sweet yet salty and creamy with bursts of subtle, blue mould flavours.The dryness of the wine cuts through the fattiness of the cheese, refreshing your palate and both the flavours in the wine and cheese become more pronounced.
