Abbie is drinking a very friendly Beaujolais

La Galoche Beaujolais Gamay is a light-bodied, easy-drinking red that will be a hit at any get-together. Similar to a Pinot, this wine has notes of juicy plums and Luxardo cherries while remaining dry with soft tannins. I paired this wine, slightly chilled, with homemade gyros, but I think it would also complement any charcuterie or even dessert. This food-friendly wine is a great gift idea — or you can keep it for yourself. Cheers!

A Perfection of Wine & Cheese Pairing: Beaujolais Village & Fromager D’Affinois

This is a truly memorable wine-cheese pairing! Gilles Gelin Beaujolais Village & Fromager D'Affinois Original and with Garlic & Herbs We wanted a wine and cheese pairing that would surpass your everyday wine and cheese pairing, and we hit on it with beautiful bottles of Beaujolais-Villages paired with Fromager D'Affinois. Our pals over at Marczyk Fine Foods suggested we try both the herbed and original versions of this luscious cow's milk cheese from the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes...and oh how we swooned! The undeniable decadence of texture and the richness of flavor beg for an earthy, clean-finishing red; we looked to Beaujolais, which [...]
