Hosting a wine, cheese and charcuterie party is a great way to explore different wine varietals, cheeses and charcuterie types and the wonderful combinations that they can create. Oberon Wines has everything you need to host an exciting party for you and your friends! Here are a few quick tips and ideas to inspire you.
Choose food and wine from various corners of the world. Compare and contrast wines, cheeses and charcuterie to see how their region of origin affects the palate.
Provide wines, cheese and charcuterie from one specific region to see how the flavors complement each other.
Focus on one specific type of wine, cheese or charcuterie and explore the variations between varietal, region, producer, etc.
Ask each guest to bring their favorite cheese, wine or charcuterie to broaden the spectrum of flavors.
Will the party be a casual, walk around tasting for guests to explore different pairings? Or will it be a more formal sit down, guided tasting for a more unified experience?
Choose decorations to set the mood. Chalkboard signs, slate or wooden platters, floral arrangements and other details are perfect accents to enhance your party.
Sending out an invitation is an important step to hosting a successful party. Include the occasion, name and contact details for the host, date and time of the party, location, and if the guests should bring anything.
