Wine and Cheese Night: Australia!


It's Aussie wine and cheese night last September 11. For the wine, we had Wyndham Estate Bin 555 Australian Shiraz.

Brie

For cheese, we had Brie and Camembert both by Australian Gold. Both soft cheeses, they are divine on crusty French bread. If I were to choose though, Brie would be my favorite.

Camembert

Throw in some liver pate, baguettes, and some slices of garlic bread and you're set for the night. Nevermind if it's spent in front of the telly.

If having a few friends together is more to your liking, throw a wine and cheese party. We had one a couple of months back, each one of us contributing one or two kinds of cheese and a compatible wine. We preferred a bit of meat in wine and cheese buffet though so we added some cold cuts to the fray. All night, talk was rife over what kind of cheese or cold cut or wine they were having and which cheese was best and which cold cuts got finished first. Definitely not your usual conversation. Overall, it was a uniquely enjoyable gathering.

Here are some of the websites I found helpful when we were planning our wine and cheese party:
