A Taste of Summer

A wine and cheese tasting party is a great way to bring friends together for a casual, fun and hassle-free summer gathering. Since it can get pricey to serve wine and cheese to a large group of people, why not supply the cheese for the evening and ask guests to bring their favorite bottle of wine? Make the evening an interactive experience by encouraging guests to share their thoughts on each selection and vote on their favorite pairings. This easy-to-prepare, light-on-the-wallet summer tasting party is sure to delight the culinary curiosity of the most discerning guest.
