There are no mountains to be found near Copys Green Farm, Wighton, but this doesn't stop Catherine Temple producing Norfolk's very own Alpine-style cheese.

Tasting notes

Wine pairing with Well's Alpine

 Our wine expert, Katie Goodchild from Heritage Wines recommends Trevibban Mill Constantine 2018 - 

"A pairing with Trevibban Mill Constantine 2018 was sublime! The wine’s nutty, buttery, honeyed and rich fruit character complemented those similar flavours found in Well’s Alpine."
