One of our favorite things about summer is the plethora of delicious food and drink options available to refresh you after a long day in the sun! Below we've included up a few of our favorite wine & goat cheese pairings for the summer months! Check back throughout the year for more wine & cheese pairings suggestions but today we're focusing on goat cheese, which pairs beautifully with a few of our summer favorites!
Miracle Springs Signal Rock with Brut
This deliciously soft pasteurized goat cheese has a bloomy rind and a layer of ash running through the center. With bright creamy flavors, a hint of minerality and a touch of lemon this spreadable goat cheese pairs perfectly with our sparkling Brut.
The light delicate flavors and touch of brioche in our sparkling Brut compliment the minerality of the goat cheese, beautifully accentuating the flavors of both!
