Today is National Wine Day….so, I thought it a great time to share with you one of my favorite wine & cheese pairing experiences. While I am a big fan of good wine…I’ve got to have it with food. And what better food to have with wine than quality, artisan cheeses which have been astutely matched with the perfect accompaniments. Well, that’s what we experienced twice at Arrowood Winery in Sonoma, Ca. – We enjoyed their Chef’s conclusions about what cheeses and accompaniments to match up with their wines so much last June, that we recently went back again. The experience is just spectacular and enlightening to one’s taste buds. The private room is set up just for us…and we are even left alone to taste and talk and relish in the aromas and combinations with no one watching over our shoulder…it was truly awesome. Above is a pictorial taking you through our walking in…seeing the winemaker in the fields checking the bud break…the tasting room toasty with the fire going (it was cold out for us…in the 30’s)…below reflects photos of our tasting set up.
The Arrowood team is informative and let’s you go through the tasting at your own pace…always there when you need them too.
The variety of taste sensations just knocked my socks off 🙂
Happy National Wine Day…I am going to have a glass right now to celebrate…I’ve had about 4 great cups of tea today, so feel ready for the wine 🙂
