Holiday Wine & Cheese Pairings
Tis’ the season for entertaining and hosting. It is well known that a cheese board is the perfect bite to serve prior to a meal or during event activities, like tree decorating. However, knowing the proper wine to pair with your artisanal cheese spread is sure to take your hosting to the next level. We hope you enjoy these four cheese and wine pairings from Award-Winning Cheesemonger Nadjeeb Chouaf:
- Challerhocker (swiss cheese): with Viognier
- Tulip Tree Trillium (triple cream, mold-ripened cheese): with Extra-Dry Sparkling
- Stickelton (English blue cheese): with Port Style
- Caromont Farm’s Ashed Blue: with Gewurztraminer
If you are looking for local cheese to serve at your next event, consider visiting Our Lady of the Angels in nearby Crozet or Caromont Farm in Esmont. Caromont Farm also sells at the Charlottesville City Market (Open April–November 17, 2018).
