Sparkling Wines and Cheeses, as we begin our California Wine Adventure

No Comments

We continue through the month of February with more sparkling wine! We did this tasting with Always Five Star (Pam) and her husband, John, during our trip out to California. Their home on Seal Beach was our first stop in the state. And really who else would you expect us to drink sparkling wine with? They already had a cheese shop picked out for us to visit, Cheese Addiction. Sounds right up my alley! We didn’t need an occasion to eat cheese and drink sparkling wine but it just so happened that Pam hit 10k Instagram followers while we were there! Let the celebrating begin. Read More…

In December each year, we come up with some wine compilation entries to showcase some wines we tried throughout the year.

If you don’t use Instagram, you’re in luck because you can still see our posts below. There’s even a direct link to each post if you want to read through the comments or see a little more about each one. Read More…

White Rioja and Goat Cheese Log

No Comments

This was our month for Rioja; first the more traditional red and now the less available white. Wait, you didn’t know there was a white Rioja? It’s ok, I don’t think many people are aware of it. That’s why we chose to include it on WineAndCheeseFriday. It is a new wine for us, too. We only recently found out about it, so we couldn’t pass it up when we saw it in the store. The cheese is coincidentally from Spain as well. Here we are with another Spanish Wine and Cheese Pairing. Let’s see how this one goes! Read More…

Cabernet Sauvignon & Goat Cheese Medallions

The wine we are tasting today comes from Hart’s Desire in Healdsburg, CA. (http://www.hartsdesirewines.com) We picked it up while we were there on our recent trip, and Shea gave us a few ideas of what flavors may surface during our tasting. We decided to go with a simpler cheese in order to allow those aromas to shine through regardless of the cheese.
