After Dinner Feast Box
Our After Dinner Feast Box is a wonderfully grown-up duo of fabulous fine port and stunning artisan cheese.
The exquisite port is made in small batches by the Bergqvist family, who have been making port since 1815. It beautifully compliments our incredible British Blue Cheese, made in Oxford by Baron Pouget.
The After Dinner Feast Box includes:
50cl Vintage Port
Crafted by the revered Port house Quinta de la Rosa, this seriously quaffable port has an intense nose and displays notes of blackberry jam, raisin and dark chocolate. Full-bodied and rich, with mouth-watering layers of dark berries, Christmas cake and spice, it is finely balanced and supported with lively acidity and supple tannins.
300g Oxford Blue Cheese
Baron Robert Pouget spotted a gap in the market for a British blue to rival Continentals, such as Fourme D’Ambert and Gorgonzola. The result was Oxford Blue – a moist creamy cows’ milk cheese that has an aromatic finish.
Store in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight.
It is necessary to apply a common sense approach to cheese care and respond to the cheese you have in front of you, as opposed to following rigid guidelines.
The best option is to keep the cheese wrapped in its waxed paper within a box in the fridge. The container will help to prevent the cheese from drying out and prevent the cheese from absorbing flavours.

About the producer
Quinta de la Rosa is situated in Northern Portugal. It is set in the heart of the Alto Douro an ‘A’ grade port growing area and is located along the banks of the river, near Pinhão. The Douro is a UNESCO World Heritage area and is one of the most un-spoilt places in Europe.
The Bergqvist family have been making port in the Euro region since 1815.
La Rosa makes all of its Port in the traditional way by treading the grapes by foot in stone granite treading tanks known as lagares.
Throughout the vintage, Jorge, the winemaker, continually assesses the progress of the fermenting lagares. He smells, feels and tastes the must as well as taking sugar measurements to establish the time when fortification will occur. Depending on its characteristics and overall quality, the young Port will be aged in wood until its vintage is ready to be quaffed.
Oxford Blue Cheese
In 1983 Robert Pouget and a friend Gerry Stevens, joined up to open a cheese shop in Oxford's covered market.
They were an unlikely pair to go into such a venture, as Robert Pouget was an artist and furniture designer, and Gerry Stevens was the manager of several pop groups.
The Cheese shop was an instant hit in Oxford: at the time there were very few specialist cheese shops, and it proved to be a welcome novelty.
In 1995 Robert Pouget began production of Oxford Blue a cheese in the tradition of Stilton (it was produced in a Stilton dairy) but with a creamier consistency especially when the cheese was allowed to mature.
Oxford Blue has become one of the most popular blue cheeses in England.
