1. Choose your cheeses wisely
Forget the generic brick of marble cheddar: a holiday wine and cheese party is the perfect opportunity to be adventurous with your selections. Choose a variety of cheeses with different tastes and textures, and you’ll be guaranteed to have something that appeals to the palate of every one of your guests. When serving a broad assortment of cheese, Macdonald recommends a sparkling wine, like Ruffino Prosecco. “It’s a flexible wine to partner with cheese because the bubbles cleanse your palate with each sip,” Macdonald says.
