Jen, Jill, Limey and I had one more iWish class to take before Limey moves, so last week Monday we went to the Wine and Cheese Pairing class at 404 Wine Bar. We’d hoped to do something like a Spanish Tapas class or some other cuisine, but we just couldn’t get our schedules to align right in these last few weeks before the move. So, wine and cheese it was. Not that I’m complaining. Who doesn’t love wine and cheese? It’s just that it was SO similar to the wine and chocolate pairing class we took a couple months ago
I think my favorite pairing was the blue cheese with the Riesling because the cheese was very pungent and the wine was a little sweet. I also really liked the South African Pinotage wine. I’d never even heard of this before so it was fun to try.
Last time after the tasting we went to 404 Wine Bar for dinner. This time we went to their attached sister bar & grill, Jack’s. You can actually get the menus for both restaurants in each place, so it didn’t really matter. What did matter was that we could watch the Packers whomp the Vikings on MNF (45-7!). Wine, cheese, & a Packers win. WIN WIN WIN!
