California Dreaming: August Cheese and Wine of the Month

With all the sunny weather we’ve had lately, it makes all of us Wisconsinites feel like we’re in California. We’ve been enjoying lovely warm and sunny weather, delicious summertime foods and fresh produce, palm trees…ok, maybe not palm trees. But still, it’s been an uplifting week of weather. So, it’s only natural that we picked our cheese and wine of the month to fit the Californian mood.

(And don’t worry. While this cheese is pretty great, we all know that Wisconsin cheese is still king.)

Cheese of the Month:

Vella Cheese Co. Dry Monterey Jack Cheese

Vella’s award-winning Dry Monterey Jack Cheese is made like a fresh Monterey Jack and aged another 7-10 months. This balanced and mild cheese is suitable for a variety of uses and pairs well with both red and white wines (however, we’d like to recommend a delicious Pinot Noir). With a firm texture, pale yellow coloring and a sweet nutty flavor, it’s perfect for shredding over pasta or tacos or slicing up for a fantastic grilled cheese sandwich. Of course, it also makes for a great eating cheese with a glass of wine.

Wine of the Month:

Pennywise, Pinot Noir, 2012

This deep ruby-hued wine offers rich aromas of rose petal, fresh-baked blueberry pie, wild cherry and toasted cedar. At first taste, a bit of tartness, which then mellows out to the taste of vanilla, French oak, wild huckleberry and toasted marshmallow. Ultimately, this wine wraps up with a playful balance of the flavors. Pennywise Pinot Noir’s rich flavor is perfect for winding down on a summer evening. Our recommendation: Pair with a Dry Monterey Jack grilled cheese sandwich topped with fruit preserves.
