While we all may enjoy a good old Tottle pie as part of an intimate picnic with the object of our affection or as part of a buffet spread at a family shindig, we still need something to accompany them - in the liquid form, that is.
What better than a cool, crisp white wine in the late summer sun, a full-bodied red enjoyed next to the heat of a barbeque or something with a little more fizz for those sunny celebrations.
Just for you, we’ve paired each of our Tottle pies with a recommended tipple – cheers!
Cider is by far the best match with a traditional recipe pork pie which is why there was no objection to our Pork and Cider pairings. However, a light Prosecco would also be great to drink alongside our Tottle pie to really bring out the apple notes in the scrummy cider flavourings. You could also try a Chablis or a White Burgundy.
If you’re more of a wine fan than a cider drinker, we can recommend a Southern French red wine, perhaps a Côtes du Rhône to bring out the tender, succulent pork in our Real McCoy that has been slow cooked to perfection.
With a classic pork pie such as Tottle’s Pork, Cheddar and Ale pie, a good old English Bitter would always go down well but a good red burgundy or Pinot Noir would be just as complementary.

Fruit wines are too often overlooked but try an Elderberry wine for a refreshing summer time change – they can be perfectly port-like to really bring out the flavour in the Stilton
