To open your local honey stick, pinch the stick in the middle, and bite the end. If it doesn’t open, try the same method on the other end. Enjoy!

THE PAIRING GUIDE

RIESLING / ROSÉ WITH BUBBLES

THE PERFECT BITE:

Double Cream French Brie + Honey + Fresh Cherry

Enjoy this classic favorite with a dabble of local wildflower honey and a fresh cherry for the this month’s #PerfectBite!

ADVENTURE SEEKERS & CONNOISSEURS:

This Double Cream French Brie comes from Normandy, France. A double cream cheese like this must consist of at least 60% butterfat, but no more than 75% butterfat, or it would be considered a triple cream. Brie is a bloomy rind cheese that is completely edible and best enjoyed at room temperature to enjoy the true buttery, mushroomy flavors.

PINOT GRIS / PINOT NOIR

THE PERFECT BITE:

Swiss Gruyère + Dried Turkish Apricot / Dried Turkish Fig

A perfect slice of Swiss Gruyère coupled with a dried fruit is certain to take your taste buds on a journey. Which one do you prefer?

ADVENTURE SEEKERS & CONNOISSEURS:

Both nutty and sweet is the best description for this fabulous Swiss Gruyère. This cheese gets its rind from brushing salted water over it regularly for 5 to 18 months. The name Gruyère used to be shared by both France and Switzerland until 1986 when Frances’ French Gruyère de Comte became Comté. The best part about this cheese is that it pairs perfectly with both white and red wine.

WHITE PINOT GRIS Blend / MEET AND MINGLE

THE PERFECT BITE:

Parmigiano Reggiano + Italian Salami + Fresh Green Grape

The king of all cheeses, this 24-month-aged Parmigiano Reggiano is perfect with these OBC Wine Project wines.

ADVENTURE SEEKERS & CONNOISSEURS:

Each wheel of Parmigiano Reggiano (approx 85 lbs) must go through and pass a rigorous test before it’s allowed for sale. Each wheel is stamped with its production date, where the cheese was made, the name of the cheese, and its passing grade on the rind (that is edible and is actually a flavor bomb!) Pro tip: if you don’t eat the rind, throw it your next pot of boiling water when making pasta.
