Visiting France

While we were in France, we figured we should try some of the famous French Wine And Cheeses. Here’s what we got a hold of while we were there.

Soave and 5 Cheeses, on the Train

Neil and I just returned from our first trip to Europe filled with photos and notes about wine and cheese. We chose to have a wine experience on a train from Paris to Milan. The scenery was beautiful, passing vineyards and countryside. It only seemed appropriate that we have some wine and cheese. I went to the dining car to see what was available, choosing the half bottle of white wine and cheese plate.

Zinfandel and 3 Cheeses; Brie, Asiago & Smoked Jack

This week we had a friend in town so we wanted to try something a little different. Steve, a fellow wine lover, is also a cheese lover and couldn’t wait to be a part of WineAndCheeseFriday. Because we all love cheese, just about as much as wine, I figured we could each have our own cheese to rate with the wine.

Wine Party at Karen’s

During the week, we joined some friends for dinner and wine pairing. Our task was for each person to choose a bottle of wine that would pair with their food. Since all of us are in the wine business we knew there would be some nice wines at the table, as well as some good pairings!

Pinot Grigio and Chèvre with Herbs


Since we’ve been in CA, we haven’t found many Pinot Grigio’s, so we decided to have one this week during Wine And Cheese Friday. This Pinot Grigio is from Italy, maybe there aren’t many produced here and that’s why we haven’t seen them? Most of our wine pairings involve red wines so this will be a nice change of pace.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Grafton 2 Year Cheddar & Cabernet Matinee Dark Chocolate

As a special treat for Valentine’s Day, we not only paired wine and cheese but added some chocolate. Not a bad deal if you ask me! We wanted to step it up a bit so the wine today will be a Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. Since there is more than one pairing happening the entry will be wine, cheese, wine and cheese, chocolate, wine and chocolate. Enjoy!
