Everything You Need to Host a Wine and Cheese Party
It's a Gouda Thing
While a bottle of wine and a wheel of Brie constitute a party in our book, an extra-special affair calls for a few special extras. We've rounded up our favorite glassware and serving pieces -- plus some advice for the edibles -- to help you nail every detail.
When the cheese plate is top-notch, it's enough to carry the menu. Learn how to put together a mouthwatering platter -- including how much to buy, what to serve alongside it it, and how to wow your guests with the presentation.
What a Slice
An ultra-sharp set of specialty knives will create even slices that look as good as they taste. We'll tell you just how to portion different types of cheese too.
What's on Your Rind?
Label your spread with cheese markers so guests can take note of their favorites -- and track them down after the party ends.
It wouldn't be a wine-and-cheese party without an eye-catching cheese board or two. Carved faux-bois aluminum handles add a modern touch to the simple silhouette of this sheesham hardwood base.
Serve up some style on a stainless steel bar tray. Wide handles and a decorative border create an elegant platform for glasses or snacks.
Bubble Your Fun
A glass of still wine suits any occasion, but our cocktails made with Champagne and sparkling wine will add instant pizzazz to your night.
Whether you sip a Bordeaux or Sauvignon Blanc, wine tastes better when savored in stunning stemware.
If you'd like some sweet to offset your savory, opt for poppable treats that guests can enjoy without setting down their wine.
