A Locavore’s Dream: Washington Wine and Cheese
Wine is a wonderful. It can be enjoyed on its own and it can bring out the best in food. For every meal, there is a wine. For every moment, there is a wine. Yes, wine is wonderful.
It’s hard to think of a more perfect combination than wine and cheese. Perhaps that’s because both wine and cheese are so diverse. There are big, bold Cabernets and there are light, effervescent, whites. There are delicate goat cheeses and strong blue cheeses. It would be easy to devote a lifetime to finding perfect combinations of wines and cheeses, and people have. The right combination can be out-of-this-world.
The Wineries of the Olympic Peninsula are looking forward to trying new combinations of Washington State Wines and Cheeses during our upcoming Northwest Wine and Cheese Tour, April 14-15, 2012.
Read on for a list of participating cheesemakers, and make your plans to attend the Olympic Peninsula’s 2012 Northwest Wine and Cheese Tour.
Mystery Bay Farm of Marrowstone Island. The goats of Mystery Bay Farm live a happy life on five pastoral acres. The cheese made from their milk is divine. We look forward to pairing their Chevre with several Washington State Wines from the Olympic Peninsula.
Mt. Townsend Creamery taps into the rich dairy farming history of the Olympic Peninsula for its milk. The cheeses crafted in Port Townsend are products of the peninsula, through and through.
Whiskey Hill Farm of Port Townsend has happy Nubian and French Alpine goats. We’re looking forward to trying their Greek Feta and Northwest King with a variety of our Olympic Peninsula Wines.
The Cheese made at Willapa Hills Farmstead of Doty is blue and creamy and delicious. We know there is a perfect Washington wine to match it.
Black Sheep Creamery of Chehalis makes a variety of cheeses from their sheep milk. We hope to serve their Black Sheep Tomme, a nutty cheese that goes beautifully with Syrah.
Golden Glen Creamery of Bow makes wonderful cheese from milk produced by their Holstein, Guernsey and Jersey cows. We look forward to trying several of their cheddars with several Washington State Wines.
