Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
Lighter bodied and delicate. Old World style generally offers more funk, New World more fruit.
Old World Pinot: Flavors of fresh cherries and raspberry balanced by a barnyard funk and high minerality. Sometimes has floral aromas, reminiscent of rose petal.
Pair with: Almost anything! Works with funky Frenchies Epoisses and Langres, or mild natural rinds like St. Nectaire.
We love them all! Everything from light, crisp Provence style to deep and fruity Spanish Rosados. Don’t be afraid to enjoy rosé year-round, but we like the summer staple best with refreshing, mild cheeses that are great in warm weather.
Pair with: Young chevres like Coupole and bloomy rinds like Moses Sleeper for the lighter stuff. A darker, fruitier rosé can stand up to a heavier cheese like nutty Pecorino Oro Antico. Sparkling rosé is a perfect match for Nettle Meadow Kunik.
Lorraine Lambiase and Sheila Flanagan have tended to their glorious farm in the Adirondack Mountains since 1990 - dozens of sheep, over 300 goats and a couple of llamas living off of the land and providing their milk to be turned into some of America’s most incredible cheeses. Their signature cheese, Kunik, is a triple creme made from a blend of goat and cow’s milk and is NOT to be missed!
