Wheat Beer, Weisse, Hefeweizen, Wit
Chianti is named for a region in Italy, and is actually made from a blend of grapes (mostly Sangiovese). This dry, medium-bodied wine has a distinct herbal quality (think rosemary and oregano) with flavors of dried plums and cherries.
Pair with: An herb-crusted cheese like Hudson Flower or a young Tuscan Pecorino.
Brie and apples, cheddar and apples – both delicious! Why not extend that deliciousness to apples in liquid form? Enjoy cider and cheese for a pairing to remember.
English style: drier, more like a beer, with nice acidity.
Pair with: : Just about anything but we love it with firm natural rind cheese, like Landaff.
