What makes a great wine and cheese party?
The secret to a great wine and cheese party is the combination of flavors that arise from the wine, cheese, fruit, nuts, and charcuterie on the table. Choose wine and cheese that create interesting and pleasing combinations, and add nuts, dried fruits, honey, olives, and bread or crackers for more texture and flavor.
What cheeses should I buy for a wine and cheese party?
A great wine and cheese party will usually have 4 to 6 cheeses that represent different textures and intensity of flavor. You can't go wrong with a selection that includes an aged cheddar, a blue cheese, a creamy cheese, a gouda, a parmesan and any alpine-style cheese.
What kinds of wines work well at a wine and cheese party?
You'll want to ideally choose wines that pair well with your cheeses, but if you include a cabernet, pinot noir, chardonnay, a Riesling, and a prosecco, you're off to a good start.
