February Cheese and Wine of the Month

It’s certainly February with frigid temps and snow storms. Luckily, here in Wisconsin, we know the way to enjoy these rough wintry days. Enjoying a tasty cheese and great bottle of wine is one of our favorite ways to relax in the winter. So, here is Hill Country Market’s pick of cheese and wine for February to help with the winter blues.

February Cheese of the Month:Purple Haze Cheese with Wine

Cypress Grove Purple Haze

If you’re looking for a unique spin on cheese, look no further than Cypress Grove’s Purple Haze cheese. Purple Haze combines flavors of lavender and wild fennel pollen. This award-winning goat cheese packs a flavorful punch and is a delicious addition to a fresh salad with berries and toasted pecans. It’s also a great one to experiment with pairing options and have fun using it to develop unique culinary creations.

February Wine of the Month:

Aquinas Pinot Noir

February Wine of the MonthThis well-balanced Pinot Noir is sure to become a favorite. Aquinas aptly describes their Pinot Noir as having, “aromas of cherry reduction, strawberry, vanilla and subtle clove notes. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine is full of fresh cranberry flavors with intricate notes of raspberry tart and toasted marshmallow,” (www.aquinasnapavalley.com). In other words, this Pinot Noir is pretty much delicious. It’s also a great wine to serve with a variety of dishes. To enjoy some great pairing flavor, try it with dishes that involve fennel, mushroom, fresh veggies, or goat cheese.

—————

You can find this month’s cheese and wine in-store. Simply look for the wine of the month and cheese of the month labels or feel free to ask one of our employees to point them out.

We hope you are able to take a moment to enjoy a great wine and cheese to scare off any of those winter blues and warm up with some delicious flavor!
