Wine and cheese are a natural combination. They've been together for 8,000 years that we know of, and our species has been busy figuring out ways to make both of them more and more delicious all the time. The match of wine and cheese is partly natural and automatic, but by applying ourselves, or tastes, or abilities to understand and choose, we can put together pairings that are many times greater than just the sum of the parts.
This class - limited to 14 students - will taste six major wine + cheese combinations together that express the full range of how these foods match up: by style, by texture, by flavor, geography, even temperament.
