Date night ideas are a must for any couple.
One of our favorite “date night in” ideas is
having some of our favorite wine paired with cheese,
combined with a savory pasta dish,
or a simple cheese board sampling
when the kids go to bed.
Our love for wine started after college.
It has taken some maturity to truly understand how
“magical” wine can be when paired with the right food.
Though we were married almost 10 years ago at
it was not until we were gifted the experience
of a private wine tour in Napa at
that we were educated in the whole wine experience
We had been wine tasting many times before…
the actual education of wine pairings and the making of wine,
by an amazing sommelier helped “wine” made sense.
It opened up my pallet to experience all types of wine varietals.
These varietals vary from different regions.
I favor the New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs
and the California Reds.
To keep ourselves trying new wines and regions,
Shane and I joined one of our favorite restaurant’s Wine Clubs,
It is an amazing wine bar with a full cheese shop.
Their wine club,
Club Orange, is a quarterly wine pick up.
There are three different levels all in which
include a wine and cheese chosen by them.
The night of the release,
wine club members are treated to an exclusive educational
tasting and pairing of the seasonal wines.
I can’t begin to explain how wonderful this club is……
Here is a viewing of my last party pickup.
