A Cheese Cupid Giveaway & Featured Pairing: Cabernet Sauvignon + Wisconsin Havarti


by Annalise of Completely Deliciouspairing-main

My husband and I have a new favorite meal we’ve named “snack dinner” and it’s in our weekly meal rotation. We share a bottle of wine and a selection of cheeses, crackers, bread, fruit and nuts. It’s one of the easiest meals to throw together, and has a big payoff for such little effort.


During the holidays our “snack dinner” easily transforms into “snack entertaining” when family and friends visit. Providing our guests with a glass (or two) of wine and a wide assortment of cheeses and other goodies to nibble on throughout the evening ensures everyone is happy and well fed.


When it comes to choosing a cheese to serve, we’ve seen through experience that Wisconsin havarti is a definite crowd pleaser. It ends up on our serving board more often than not, and doesn’t last long. It’s smooth, creamy, and pairs perfectly with our favorite budget-friendly cabernet sauvignon.


To plan your own cheese party, visit the Cheese Cupid Pairing Tool to find out which drinks and foods pair best with your favorite cheeses.
