Wine and Cheese: Luxury or Appreciation of Flavors?

Nearly 5 years ago, I would have thought no more of wine and cheese as a piece of food and drink you put in your mouth and chew. But over the years, I’ve learned that the understanding and appreciation of wine & cheese combination’s takes time to discover and develop. You see, eating a piece of cheese and quickly taking a sip of wine is like eating strawberries and chocolate together; feeling that “pow” in your mouth before the natural fruity sweetness has left your mouth. Time stands still and you experience the textures, magical flavors and changes in your mouth and around your tongue. The moment is sensual, experimental and indulgent. Try combining a Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot, Chardonnay or any type of wine with a creamy brie, gouda, blue cheese or even a pecorino. See what does or doesn’t work… have fun and enjoy the artistry.

Wine and cheese is like a marriage. You must constantly work at it, saveur each moment and remember the good times (and the bad!).
