Every Friday night the Brooklyn wine store has been welcoming one of the cheesemongers from Provisions from 5-7pm. They arrive bearing gifts of cheese that we select a wine to pair with. In honor of Earth Day coming up, this week, our mongers are going local and tasting two Vermont cheeses. Mike’s going local too and choosing some Long Island wines to pair.
Cheeses to be served include Sholten Family Farm Weybridge, a tiny 3 ounce puck of organic cow’s milk with a bloomy rind and a soft and luscious center, aged at the Cellars at Jasper Hill and Consider Bardwell Manchester, a washed rind, raw goat’s milk cheese. Semi-firm with a musty, barnyardy and somewhat sweet bite.
To pair, the wine store will serve Paumanok Chenin Blanc 2009 and Paumanok Dry Rosé 2009.
