How to Entertain with Cheese, Wine and Charcuterie

How to Entertain with Cheese, Wine and Charcuterie is one of the simplest ways to make a lasting impression for a party. Plus the secret is to sourcing out great products to make your charcuterie or cheese board look amazing. Maybe even adding in a little personal touch like a red pesto spread. Also, choosing Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wines will have you set for the perfect food/wine pairings.
White wines from Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wines go gorgeously for spring/summer entertaining and choosing a Pinot Grigio with a fresh peach-citrus finish goes great with a rich brie.
While a Chardonnay, which is smooth and flavorful pairs gorgeous with a goat’s cheese.
Their White Zinfandel which is a versatile wine is bright and crisp with hints of juicy red fruit and citrus, this wine pairs with a great aged cheese.
So having a nice selection of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi Wines available will have all your guests thrilled. Try them all to find the one you like the best!
Also having a great selection of meats and cheese that pair with the different wines is a must. Another key point is to always have great fresh wonderful ingredients for your charcuterie boards.
Then adding in some wonderful delicacies like candied nuts, fresh berries, ripe tomatoes, grapes, olives, crackers, and crostinis compliments all that you are offering.
A lovely touch is jelly of some sort that pairs with the cheese! Here I have served a Habanero Apricot Jelly but if you want to add your own touch to a charcuterie board you can make an easy Wine Jelly. They really are simple and add so much to your already glamorous board.
I would suggest omitting the vanilla bean and adding in a fresh herb like a sprig of thyme or rosemary. That would make the most delightful of jellies.

You can’t go wrong with meat, cheese, olives and wine. I will have to make a charcuterie board for my next girls day.

I’ve never made a charcuterie tray but after reading this post it seems pretty simple. I’m going to give it a try for our next party.
