Wisconsinites pride themselves on the state's beer and cheese, with good reason. We (ahem) produce some of the best of both (in my non-biased opinion).
But Wisconsin also produces some wonderful wines. And we all know that there's nothing better than wine and cheese pairings (except perhaps beer and cheese pairings.)
This weekend you can sample delicious local wine and cheese at two separate events(as listed on The Daily Page)
Friday (today!) November 20, from 5-7 p.m. James Norton and Becca Dilley will be at Fromagination to celebrate their book Master Cheesemakers of Wisconsin with a reading and cheese tasting that’s doubling as a launch party. Fromagination, 12 S. Carroll St., 5 p.m., free. Call 263-0734 for more info.
Saturday, Nov. 21, Wollersheim Winery of Prairie du Sac is throwing a tasting party marking the release of Ruby Nouveau 2009 in its annual Beaujolais nouveau celebration. This latest vintage and other Wollersheim wines will be paired with various specialty Wisconsin cheeses provided by Roth Käse at the tasting, which will also include a self-guided “wine journey” detailing the creation of the Nouveau. Wollersheim Winery, 7876 Hwy. 188, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., free. Call 608-643-6515 for more info.
Take a sip for me!
