NATIONAL WINE AND CHEESE DAY
On July 25, we celebrate the ultimate pairing, wine and cheese. National Wine and Cheese Day provides an opportunity to sample some of our favorites in a social gathering or simply as a way to expand our palate.
The pairing of Wines and Cheese has a long tradition of being regionalized. Across wine producing cultures, each will have traditional approaches to pairing their local wines and cheeses. For example, the French Brie region has long been noted for its many tannic wine varietals such as Beaujolais as well as for its Brie cheese production. That doesn’t stop a sommelier or cheesemonger from making recommendations to their clientele.
Sampling the complexities in sweetness and acidity and comparing them at a tasting makes for an enjoyable experience.
