Holiday Wine and Cheese Pairings by (PB)
In a recent conference call with the Sam's Club wine and cheese buyers we discussed pairings for the holidays realizing that a bunch of us will be fretting over the right cheeses with the right wines. Below is a helpful little list that can get you started in the right direction. I just returned from my local Sam's Club and their cheeses--at least the ones I checked are WAY cheaper than anything I can find anywhere else so be sure to check out yours!
