Anne and Andy Wigmore Maker: Anne and Andy Wigmore

What time do you get up?

Not as early as we use to; in the early days 5.30am but with the passing of years and reliable help, now just after 6.30am - but not at weekends!

What do you drink with the cheese that you make?

The lightly sweet Muscat de Rivesaltes with Wigmore, ( Alan Murchison of L'ortolan, Shinfield recommended this to us); sweet dessert wine with Waterloo; red Rioja with Spenwood.

What’s your favourite cheese anecdote?

An early collaboration with James Aldridge produced the popular Golden Saye, a washed rind cheese. So popular in fact that when James decided to try something different, its passing was recorded in the column inches of the Times diary.

If you weren’t a cheesemaker what would you be?

Establish a unique restaurant - but then hand it over to a manager!

What is your favourite view?

Looking out over the hills from our apartment in Andalusia, Spain.

What’s your greatest extravagance?

Bringing up two teenage boys - but worth every penny!
