WHAT WE'RE DRINKING

SEPTEMBER SPIRIT OF THE MONTH: AQUAVIT

Aquavit is a Scandinavian spirit that is traditionally flavored with ingredients such as caraway, cardamom, fennel, or dill. Through September we will feature some of our favorite aquavits and show you how versatile it can be! Week 2: Local Pairing

FENOUILLET BEAUMES DE VENISE

This fabulous Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre blend offers perfect balance between ripe fruit, earthiness, and a subtle smoky quality. An amazing wine for the upcoming cool fall weather. 

CHEESE SHOP

The Pairing is on Summer Vacation

Summer is winding down and The Pairing team is taking a little vacation. Cheese shortages from Europe plus some much needed time off for several of the team responsible for this feature means we’re on break until after the State Fair. We have 17 weeks of content for you to catch up on while we’re working on our tans. CLICK HERE

GARROTXA 15% OFF

Pronounced GAH-ROW-CHA, this diminutive Catalan goat milk tomme sometimes gets overlooked in a world of goat goudas and creamy chevre. Cheesemonger Austin is back with another great write up of this unique and delicious cheese.
