National Wine and Cheese Day
National Wine and Cheese Day is observed on July 25 of every year. On National Wine and Cheese Day, we celebrate the ideal combination, that is wine and cheese. To taste wine and cheese, take a sip of wine and take a bite of cheese, and take another sip for the left out cheese in your mouth. It is best if you taste the wine and cheese on an empty stomach, with only bread and water on the side. Just like chocolate and peanut butter, oil and vinegar, peanut butter and jelly, drinking wine and eating cheese is one such heavenly blend. The right wine should be paired with proper cheese to get the perfect taste of the combo. There are numerous possibilities to pair wine with cheese. Few of the best pairs are Port And Bleu Cheese, Prosecco And Parmesan, Sauternes And Fondue, Cabernet Sauvignon And Aged Gouda, Chardonnay And Gruyere, Rioja And Manchego, and lot more. Hence, celebrate the day with your favorite cheese and wine. Happy National Wine and Cheese Day.
“Wine and cheese are ageless companions, like aspirin and aches, or June and moon, or good people and noble ventures.” – M. F. K. Fisher

The National Wine and Cheese Day is assumed to be created by freelance writer and wine-lover, Jace Shoemaker-Galloway. This day is believed to be celebrated since 2014. But the pairing of Wine and Cheese has been recorded back in the history. In wine-producing cultures, locally made wine and cheese were traditionally paired and enjoyed. Like in the French Brie region, one of the varieties of tannic wine, Beaujolais used to be paired with Brie cheese. Take those glass and some cheese to observe the day in the right way.
