Pairing your charcuterie with the perfect beverages.
This doesn’t have to be a huge thought process.
Champagne in it’s effervescence always pairs well with the creaminess of cheeses and breads. Red wines will compliment the meats you have displayed.
Consider local ciders and even whisky as a great pairing with the breads, meats and cheeses as well.
