Foley Food and Wine Society has put together an easy, delicious and perfectly paired way to enjoy the spring months outdoors. We’ve “paired” up select Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co. artisanal cheeses with a few of our favorite Foley Family wines.
When it comes to selecting cheese, we recommend choosing a variety of cheeses with diverse tastes and textures to create a spread that will serve as the perfect complement to your wine selections. To create a dynamic, wine-friendly and easy cheese platter we suggest the Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co.’s Crowd Pleaser. Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co describes this platter as, “a party in a box-complete with everything you need for the most delicious cheese board.”
Artisanal cheeses are nicely complemented by some of our estate grown wines like Chalk Hill’s artfully handcrafted 2019 Estate Sauvignon Blanc, The El Pino Club’s silky 2018 Pinot Noir and Lancaster’s 91 point – Robert Parker 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon.
Once you’ve selected a delicious mix of cheese and wine, it’s time to consider the rest of your picnic essentials. Here are some ideas to round out your perfect picnic experience:
- Beyond Fromage: A picnic blanket, wine tumblers and some soft music to get the ambiance just right!
- Stay Cozy: Find the perfect view to have your picnic, bring some blankets and plan to stay awhile!
- Start Relaxing: Open bottles, bring cheese to room temperature and enjoy!
