How To Pair Wine And Cheese This Season

Summer used to be our favorite season but after record breaking heat waves we are gearing up for probably the best season of the year: fall.   The best part of fall is entertaining.    The crisp cool air of autumn is the perfect time to pour a glass of the good stuff and catch up with friends.   So we have compiled our list of seasonally appropriate wines, cheese and treats to serve at your next gathering.    We have also teamed up with Brooklyn-based cheese expert of Cheese Grotto and Call Me Caramel, Jessica Sennett on the best wine and cheese pairings.
