When you attend a wood sign workshop at The Henn House in Burr Ridge, not too far from Downers Grove, you can BYOB. We want you to have a great time while you get crafty, so we invite you to bring along a drink and some snacks, and you can’t make a more classic snack pairing than wine and cheese.
Before your next paint party or DIY workshop, check out these great wine and cheese pairings to see which sounds the best to get the creativity flowing.
Parmesan and Prosecco
Parmesan is a classic, delectable Italian cheese, and Prosecco is a delicious Italian wine. When you pair the two, the bubbles in the Prosecco cut through the parmesan’s saltiness for a tasty combo.
Aged Cheddar and Malbec
Red wine fan? Malbec offers chocolatey notes, while aged cheddar provides a sharper taste. The sweetness of the Malbec balances out that sharpness to create a delightful combination.
Brie and Pinot Noir
Another great red wine is Pinot Noir, and brie is the favorite cheese of many who enjoy a creamy cheese. This red wine is light enough that it can balance out the flavors of this cheese without overpowering it.
Mozzarella and Pinot Grigio
Opting for white wine? Pinot Grigio offers a tanginess that complements the mild sweetness of mozzarella.
Chèvre and Sauvignon Blanc
Wine and cheese from the same area typically pair well together. Take chèvre and Sauvignon Blanc, for example. They’re both French, and they are delicious together.
