Cheese and wine are the dynamic duo that never fails around the holidays! Make charcuterie and vino the show-stopping centerpiece at your holly jolly celebration and now Antonelli’s in Austin makes it easier than ever! They’ll do all the hard work assembling the perfect board and all you need to do is pick it up. I visited my friends at We Are Austin and shared some more about these charcuterie masters, PLUS H-E-B wine to pair with your board and a recipe that uses your leftover cheese. Watch the segment here!
Tanji’s Wine Finds:
Let us introduce you to picks that will pair with anything. Sparkling and Rosés are versatile and taste great with a variety of foods. Lively whites that are light and acidic and will also pair with just about anything! The Josh Cellars Rosé ($10) and the Trimbach Gewurztraminer ($20) are both foolproof bottles to grab.
Sauvignon Blancs pair great with fresh cheeses like goat cheese! The Crossings Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand is zesty with citrus notes of juicy lime and grapefruit that match the herbaceous and zesty goat cheese. $13
Big cheeses need big wines. Cheese like bleu cheese, gorgonzola and sharp cheddars need a partner to match their strength, so bring in the reds! Cabernets and this Fidelity Zinfandel are fuller-bodied and accentuate the bolder cheeses. $20
