Summer Wine and Summer Cheese

The cover of Wine Enthusiast’s November issue, 2016 named a BOXED WINE one of the top red wines of the year, proving that great wine can come in any shape. “Of the more than 21,000 wines reviewed this past year by Wine Enthusiast, fewer than 1,400 were awarded the Best Buy designation. From there, the magazine narrowed the group down to “an elite list of the top 100, including the most enticing, buzzworthy, obtainable and, most important, affordable wines available today,” says Wine Enthusiast.

Summer is about joining with friends and sharing your very best. It is time to DRINK INSIDE THE BOX, and pour great wine. Boxed wines transport easily and refrigerate without an aftertaste if there is a little left over. Our sommelier, Chad Lohman, will guide us through the very best of the summer boxed wines, and their strengths and weaknesses. Chad earned his certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers and owns the local Nespor’s Liquor Store, in Manhattan’s Westloop Shopping Center.  He features the well-known “Chad’s Table” spotlighting little known labels and drinkable wines. Chad was intrigued with our Boxed Wine and Cheese theme. “I think it will be a great evening and open people’s eyes as to what is out there, “said Chad. “The boxed wine has come a long way.”

The wine will be paired by cheeses selected by Murray’s Cheese Master, Alesia Pittman.  Alesia will be selecting outstanding summer cheese to pair with crackers and fruit, along with different serving suggestions.

Make sure to take part in the blind taste test!  Each boxed wine will be compared with its bottled wine grape combination. See if you can tell the difference!   The winner will win a basket of cheese and wine selected by our Guides.
