Finally Weekend: Wine & Cheese Party!
Don't wait any longer, invite your friends over and kick off the weekend with stylish Wine & Cheese Party :) We have a handful of great tips for you, so roll up your sleeves and get ready. This only takes you a few minutes and success, happy guests & lots of fun, is guaranteed!
Join us for the search for the perfect wine and cheese match! In case you don’t have a really deep knowledge about cheeses, here is a simple guide to help you decode the fascinating world of Camembert, Brie, Gouda, Cheddar and Parmesan:
1. Bloomy cheeses such as creamy and decadent Brie or Camembert are best enjoyed with Chardonnay or Champagne.
2. Hard, sharp and salty chesses such as Gouda, Cheddar and Parmesan go well with Cabernet Sauvignon or Chianti.
3. Blue salty cheeses, such as Gorgonzola, will match perfectly with Riesling.
4. Fresh, soft and mild Ricotta, Mozzarella and Feta are served with wines such as Sauvignon Blanc and Beaujolais.
Purchase a variety of cheeses and get creative with a cheese platter. Display all you bought – from fresh to bloomy. How about name tags with a short description and country of origin? If your quests do not know each other that well, this can be a good conversation starter. Be sure, you will take all the cheese out of the refrigerator 30 to 60 minutes prior to serving. And do not forget to top the platter with fruits and nuts.
And now the fun part: TASTING! Learn how to taste wine like a pro.
