Wine and Cheese Pairing Party (includes Pairing Guide)


Say farewell to long summer nights and invite friends over for a casual wine and cheese pairing party... after all wine and cheese are two of life’s greatest culinary pleasures!! You can have your guests bring wine and you can set up a decadent cheese table using wood, glass and stone for an eclectic earthy look! Love how they use cake stands to display cheeses and grapes using different heights! You can get creative with cheese place cards or purchase a nifty slate cheese tray, which allow you to etch cheese names in chalk.
When it comes to pairing..treat cheese as food...lighter cheeses are better with lighter wines - fresh goat cheese with a crisp Sancerre, for instance. Richer cheeses, like Camembert or Tête de Moine, need a more full-bodied wine, such as white Burgundy or a Pinot Gris from Alsace.

Here is a complete cheese and wine pairing guide:

I am a convinced wine and cheese addict! A glass of Chianti accompanied by some savoury Parmiggiano Reggiano or Pecorino Romano!
