Brie with the Chard or Pinot? or both?

with the Chardonnay, but always great to try with both!
Madeleine Coggins
50:35
Hi everyone! Maddy from Laura Chenel here! The fat molecules of goat's milk are also smaller, which contributes to the unique mouth feel. We love this cheese with pinot! Erin, CCP, loves this cheese so much. ;)
Victoria Voight
50:56
Is there a beer that pairs with the goat cheese?
Don Davis - MacRostie Winery
53:52
Saison is a perfect pairing with goat cheese, as well as Belgian Whites or a German Pilsner.
Sandy Perry
55:15
How about a beer and cheese tasting in January?

It's a cheese paper
Madeleine Coggins
01:19:26
It has fine holes to breathe
Bret Ingerman
01:19:28
Cheese bags?
Madeleine Coggins
01:19:35
It also allows the ammonia to get out
Madeleine Coggins
01:20:20
Laura Chenel does not plastic wrap our cheeses.
Don Davis - MacRostie Winery
01:20:44
cheese bags are on Amazon. I swear by them for my pricey cheeses!
Madeleine Coggins

That's right

I agree with Don!

love blue cheese on salads, grilled cheese, but always wonder how to eat it on a cheese board. Love how mild this one is.
Amy Olson
01:27:45
We ran out of the 2017 Sangiacomo Chard so we opened a 2018 Dutton Ranch Chard and the Blue is very nice with it as well.
Patrick Thomas
