Much like any remarkable culinary experience, the key to making the best food and wine pairings is to start with the finest of ingredients. And there are few things more satisfying than perfectly paired cheese and wine from Washington favorites, Beecher’s Handmade Cheese and Chateau Ste. Michelle. So we teamed up with our Seattle neighbor, Cheateau Ste. Michelle to accompany some of our beloved cheeses.
DULCET WITH DOMAINE STE. MICHELLE BRUT
Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut is the perfect accompaniment for a wide array of foods, and our creamy Dulcet is no exception. This uber-buttery cheese combined with the delicate aromas of green apple and bright citrus from the brut provides beautifully balanced acidity and flavor.
FLAGSHIP WITH EROICA RIESLING
Eroica is a blended statement of the finest Riesling vineyards in the state and offers sweet lime and mandarin orange aromas with subtle mineral notes. The flavor from the Washington Riesling fruit and the nuttiness from Beecher’s signature Flagship cheese is refreshing, light, and a perfect pairing for a picnic.
MARCO POLO WITH COLUMBIA VALLEY SYRAH
The medley of black pepper spices in Beecher’s Marco Polo cheese is a delicious complement to this fruit-forward Columbia Valley Syrah. Do yourself a favor and get another bottle because this easy-to-drink red brings out the peppered taste of Marco Polo in the best way.
FLAGSHIP RESERVE WITH INDIAN WELLS CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Beecher’s award-winning Flagship Reserve offers an aged taste and texture while the Indian Wells Cabernet Sauvignon maintains a clean, creamy finish. The dark fruit aromas and flavors from the Cabernet mixed with the richness of the Flagship Reserve would make for the most decadent dessert pairing.
