Cheese Plate with Crackers + Fruit

5 years ago

This past fall, a couple of friends and I took a trip to a winery that specializes in fruit wines. We had a tasting session, then decided to share a cheese plate with a glass of our favourite wine from the tasting.

The plate had cranberry goat cheese, blue cheese, and brie on it. For crackers, there were parmesan wafers (SO good), stone wheat crackers, and melba toasts. There were also green olives, cranberry preserves, cantaloupe, strawberries, and blueberries. A little flower bloom was also placed on our plate, which I thought was really cute. ^^

My favourite cheese was definitely the cranberry goat cheese, seeing as I really like both cranberries and tangy cheeses. I like brie cheese, too, but I HATE blue cheese, and will avoid it at all costs. So my friends got more than their fair share of that cheese, lol. I really liked the green olives, cranberry preserves, and parmesan thins, as well. I enjoyed my portion of this assortment with a glass of cranberry wine - it was awesome! I actually ended up buying a bottle and squirreling it away until Christmas. It was totally worth it!

I would really love to go back to this winery again one day, but it`s "out in the sticks", as they say, and I live in the city, so it`s quite a trip. Perhaps I will have to arrange another outing with my friends, though, because I`m sure we`d all like to get back and drink more wine, hehe.
