Roquefort Blue

Roquefort Blue
The wines from La Giaretta have rapidly established themselves as among the most popular of our portfolio. Husband and wife team, wonderfully - though confusingly - called Francesco and Francesca, run the estate located in Valgatara, a small hill town that lies in the heart of the classic Valpolicella region. They produce the lot from the lighter dryer Valpolicella to its sturdier brother Amarone della Valpolicella, which are the two most important red wines in the Veneto, all the way to the sweet Recioto (amazing match with Chocolate by the way) For several generations, the winery has produced and bottled wine obtained exclusively from grapes grown on the estate including the Valpolicella, the Ripasso and the Amarone.

What to drink with... Roquefort Blue.

Roquefort is a blue cheese made from sheep’s milk and comes from the South of France and has protected designation of origin status.

This cheese has a salty, savoury character with a sharp tang coming from the blue mouldy veins. A sweet wine will complement this cheese and we love our Muscat de Beaumes de Venise with its balancing acidity as well as our Italian sticky Ambrosie Verduzzo Friulano. If you fancy something fuller in the mouth, then opt for our special Amarone or our pretty fab Malvasia from Madeira.
