What wine?

Getaway (South Africa) - - Food -

The French take cheese and wine se­ri­ously. Last year they con­ducted re­search to prove that ‘when hav­ing a plate of as­sorted cheeses, the wine will prob­a­bly taste bet­ter no mat­ter which one you choose’. Très bon! Maybe it’s be­cause both are fer­mented – wine with yeast, cheese with bac­te­ria – or maybe it’s that they share an acid sense of hu­mour. Who cares: it’s a match made in the cel­lars of heaven and you’d be mad not to ex­plore the pos­si­bil­i­ties. Be­cause both prod­ucts are such strong char­ac­ters, it’s hard to find one-siz­e­fits-all op­tions, so rather go with one per­fect, kick-ass, su­per-tweet­able pair­ing. Push your bound­aries and don’t be mean – if you’re ever go­ing to blow the drinks bud­get, do it on a cheese-and-wine mo­ment.
