There’s no better way to celebrate ladies night than with a bottle of wine and some tasty snacks. Lauren, from攀登山格里尔, shows us how to put together the perfect wine tasting party with Harry & David wines and gourmet appetizers. So, go ahead and call a few friends over, open a bottle, and unwind!
How about having all three of those things in the comfort of your own home? Hosting friends offers an opportunity to connect and catch up. Everyone is either running to the next event or family activity and rarely do we have time to sit and just be.
One of the best ways to gather the gaggle and connect is to host a Wine Tasting Party! Now, I am a firm believer that simplicity is key when it comes to providing food and drink. That’s why Harry & David makes entertaining a breeze.
我决定为了自己Antipasto Wine Pairing Collection Gift Box。It’s the perfect collection of Southern Oregon wine, artisanal cheeses, and assortment of ingredients to make a quick appetizer like premium salami, French baguette, and olives. Think of it as an instant wine tasting party in a box!
The first thing I do when I have friends over is make sure everyone has something to nibble on. I decided to make these Whipped Goat Cheese Crostini withHarry & David Sweet Cherry Pepper Bruschetta Spread。你可以做的时间掼山羊奶酪前进，然后简单地添加在上面的甜樱桃辣椒当你准备发球。我喜欢这个面包片蔓延，因为它是一个多功能的绝了！使用它在鸡或作为汤首发。说真的，所以顿饭真够意思！Scroll down for full recipe.
Next, set out your pairings. Place each cheese – gruyere, blue cheese, and cheddar on a sampling plate along with a few crackers and other palate clearing fare. Then place a few wine glasses beside the plate for tasting. In theAntipasto Wine Pairing Collection Gift Box您会收到三次俄勒冈州南部的葡萄酒品种。
Cheese Pairings for a Wine Tasting Party
This chardonnay is aged in a stainless steel and French oak. With notes of honey and melon it pairs beautifully with Gruyère cheese.
This bold varietal is aged in French and American oak. Fruity, yet has a smooth full-bodied taste with some spice. The blue cheese is a wonderful companion to this wine.
This lush blend is very approachable. With hints of vanilla, subtle spice, and cedar notes this wine pairs well with cheddar.
Let the wine and cheese pairing begin! Sip, nibble and chat away as you move down the list. Ask your friends which pairing is their favorite and enjoy being in the moment! Cheers!
