Italy – land of so many wonderful foods!
We love the variety of cheeses that can be found in Italy as well as the gorgeous wines that can be put with them. We recently ran an Italian tasting with the Surrey Wine School where we combined 6 cheeses with 6 wines. The tasting began with a soft, buttery young cheese called Bel Paese which means ‘beautiful country’ and paired it with a fresh, dry Prosecco. This light, inviting combination showed that Italy isn’t just about full bodied reds like Chianti or rugged strong cheeses like Parmesan (although we tried that later in the evening!).
