Wine & Cheese, Please!

Night in? No worries! You can turn any low-key evening into a sophisticated wine-and-cheese-tasting party — no need for a sommelier certification. Forget acidity levels and grape varieties, this helpful guide will turn your basic cheese plate into an artisanal delicacy.

How to enjoy:

  1. Taste the cheese first.
  2. Have another bite and take a sip of wine.
  3. Inhale through your nose and try to identify which part of your palate the flavors harmonize.
