Wine Night with the Oscars

Oscar Pairings Header

There's no event quite as glamourous as the Oscars. But just because you're (probably) not attending, that doesn't mean you have to dial back the glitz and glamour this Sunday! Grab a few bottles of wine, some fancier-than-normal cheese, and throw a soiree of your own. Here are a few of our suggestions:

Wine & Cheese Pairings

  • A good Merlot from Sonoma or Napa has a big and distinct flavor in a smoother, softer wine. It can be paired with a variety of cheeses, but try something harder and sharper like Manchego
  • A mouthfilling Chardonnay with some oak and good acid is the perfect pairing for any creamy cheese, especially Brie. Wines with similar qualities to this one from White Oak will be perfect.
  • Feel free to mix and match, too! If you do 1 Chardonnay, 1 Merlot, 1 creamy cheese, and 1 sharper cheese, they all go pretty well together.
