Cheese & wine – a match made in heaven!
Love wine and cheese but not sure how to create the perfect match? The experts at Blue Cow Cheese share three delectable combinations you can try for your next dinner party or celebration.
Theme: Washed Rinds and Pinot
Washed rind cheese was originally developed by monks in France, Italy and Spain. The earliest recorded recipe dates back to the 12th century. Washed rind cheese finds its name due to the nature of the cheese being rubbed with a brine or wine solution. This promotes the growth of bacteria on the surface. We invite you to explore and learn more about an arrangement of delicious, complex and pungent cheese paired to one of the world’s great wine styles, Pinot.
