On Wednesday, July 25, we celebrate a delightful combination of food and drink. National Wine and Cheese Day provides an opportunity to sample some of our favorites in a social gathering or simply as a way to expand our palate.
Sometimes unlikely duos become great hits. Like peanut butter and jelly, chocolate and peanut butter, salt and vinegar chips, bacon and maple syrup, wine and cheese are delightful combinations. When the right wine is paired with the perfect cheese, the taste and aromas of each are magnified and enhanced, awakening the senses. The possibilities for the perfect wine and cheese pairings are as endless as one's imagination.
Grab your favorite Fiesta wine and sample it with some of your favorite cheeses. Post photos of your favorite pairings on social media. Use #NationalWineAndCheeseDay and #FiestaWinery when posting on social media.
