With New Year’s around the corner, many of us still have holiday parties and get-togethers on our minds. After a busy Christmas season (or any season really!), I am appreciative of anything that simplifies entertaining. I love spending time with friends, but hate the stress of getting the house ready and planning a great menu. While Wine Down Box can’t do anything about the toys shoved under your coffee table, they CAN help you serve up something your guests will love.

If I’m being honest, the thought of putting together a wine and cheese board that actually makes sense completely overwhelms me. We are wine rookies – and are still learning about what foods best compliment different wines. So, having a  wine subscription service that also includes perfectly paired cheese and charcuterie meats is amazing. I don’t have to wander store aisles, read labels, do any research – or even leave my house! Without any effort, I had an awesome party tray ready to go – just by answering my door.

Here is what the Wine Down Box I received included:

The cheese was specifically selected to both compliment and balance the flavors in the wine. The robust salami paired with the creamy savory cheese (on the best crackers I’ve ever had), was the perfect bite to enjoy with the Merlot (a first for us!)

The bottle of Merlot from the Cardella Winery was a great way to cap off our recent Friendsmasgiving celebration. After an evening of sweet treats, ending the night with a great herbal wine and some delicious cheese and salami was just perfect. Who will you enjoy YOUR Wine Down Box with?
