Take online wine classes with Vinolust! Learn all about wine from the comfort of home.
The holidays are approaching and what better way to spend out time than honing our palate for delightful pairings! This month we explore the delectable combination of wine and cheese and what makes them work so well together.
Each class in this 3-part series we will taste 2 different wines paired with the same cheese (cheese to be sourced by you separately!). You are also welcome to add to your cheese plate as you see fit:) We will taste as we learn about these particular wines and the regions they come from, as well as their particular affinity with each chosen fromage.
For this class, I have specific wines selected and cheeses that I recommend, but these pairings are versatile and you can always source on your own! See below for the lineup and suggestions and then register to participate!
Classes in the series include:
Class 1: November 4th – Light & Creamy
This class we take the delicate nuances of bubbles and light red wine to see how they both elegantly pair with creamy cheeses.
Recommended cheese selection: Delice de Bourgogne
(Alternatives: Brie, a double or triple cream cheese of your choice)
Class 2: November 11th – Bright & Bold
Let’s break open a couple beautiful, bold wines that go perfectly with aged and awesome cheeses.
Recommended cheese selection: Comté
(Alternatives: An aged cheese of your choice, such as Gruyère, Gouda, Manchego or Cheddar)
Class 3: November 18th – Savory, Sweet & Salty
Think of this class as our dessert course, with something for those who love savory OR sweet, pairing fortified wines with rich, salty cheeses.
Recommended cheese selection: Stilton
(Alternatives: a beautiful blue cheese or otherwise potent fromage)
The accompanying Vinolust Pairing 6-pack is available at Hi-Time Wine Cellars, with both wines we will taste in each class.
