Put the meat in a mixing bowl and pour over the wine, vinegar and enough water just to cover the meat.
Leave to soak for 2 hours.
Drain the meat and pat dry with kitchen paper towels.
Cook the pork fat in a frying pan until it has rendered most of its fat.
Add the meat and brown on all sides.
Transfer the meat mixture to a baking dish.
Stir in the boiling water, salt and pepper to taste, the nutmeg and herbs.
Cover the dish and bake in a cool oven (150°C/300°F or Gas Mark 2) for 2 1/2 hours or until the meat is very tender.
Drain the meat in a strainer over a mixing bowl.
Chill the liquid in the mixing bowl for 20 minutes.
Finely chop the meat and place in a large terrine.
Skim the fat from the liquid in the mixing bowl and place it in a saucepan.
Melt the fat and pour over the meat in the terrine.
Cover and chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
