The Shavuot holiday and really this time of year with picnics and parties offers the perfect opportunity to pamper your guests with a gourmet cheese plate and wine pairings—it’s an  elegant, no-cook, no-fuss hors d’oeuvre or even dessert course.

Hard cheese, such as Natural & Kosher Cheddar or Fitucci Parmesan
Rich, full-bodied red wines such as the Barkan Classic Cabernet Sauvignon

Creamy cheeses, such as Brie
Acidic wines, like a Chardonnay or dry (AKA Brut) sparkling wine such as the ELVI Adar Brut

Soft goat cheese
Wines with citrus characteristics such as the Baron Herzog Pinot Grigio

Salty cheeses such as Blue cheeses

Sweet dessert wines (such as the Herzog Reserve late harvest wines) and robust red wines such as Weinstock Cellar Select Cabernet Sauvignon

In addition to wine – pair your cheese with:
slices of pear or apple, different types of crackers, or even more
interesting—breads baked with fruit or nuts, like a pecan-raisin loaf or cranberry-walnut bread.
