Wine and Cheese

I don't know about you, but having a good chunk of cheese with my favorite wine makes for a delightful tasting experience.  With that in mind, my wine tours will be featuring local cheeses that pair well with the wines offered while out tasting at the wineries.

One benefit of having a cheese to try with your wine is to help balance the tannins in the wine.  For some, tannins are a hurdle to cross in enjoying the wine.  Tannins can be a bit "scratchy" and detract from the overall tasting experience,  Add the right cheese and those tannins will mellow out and you can concentrate on the fruit flavors of the wine.
