I am pretty much always down for a wine and cheese night, and now that it’s cold out, this is my ideal girls night in. But just in case you’re bored of wine and cheese (who are you?!), I’ve got a new spin for you: a Riesling Flight Night!
Don’t worry, we’re keeping everything we love about wine nights – just making it a little bit more interactive! Before catching up and watching holiday movies, line up 3 or 4 different bottles of Pacific Rim Riesling. (I used their Sweet Riesling, Dry Riesling, J Riesling and Vin De Glaciere.) Then get out your fun glasses and cute notecards, so everyone can taste test and write a few things down as you make your way through the riesling flight!
Since rieslings are usually pretty sweet, it’s nice to pair them with something salty and spicy! I found a jalepeno goat cheese and extra sharp cheddar that worked perfectly. And no cheese board is complete without crackers, nuts and olives, right?
Okay, but what’s so great about Pacific Rim rieslings, Lauren? Great question, guys! First of all, their bottles are SO COOL. The dragons automatically add a playful element to the night. But beyond just being pretty, I also love that they are sustainably produced right in the Pacific Northwest. And lastly, they’re affordable. WIN!
You can chat about each wine as you make your way through the riesling flight… or just write all your thoughts down and share at the end. It’s really fun to see if you and your friends picked up on the same flavors – or if you all tasted completely different things! You never know!
Would you try a Riesling flight at your next wine and cheese night?
