Seminar 2: Cheese & Wine Pairing with Laura Werlin

Saturday, March 23rd
12:00 pm - 1:15 pm

Cheese & Wine Pairing with Cheese Superstar/Edu-tainer Laura Werlin

About the Seminar

Cheese and wine are frequent companions, but with the seemingly infinite number of flavor variations in both cheese and wine, how do you discover the perfect pairings? The answer: taste, taste, taste — not exactly a hardship for wine and cheese lovers! With that in mind, please join Laura Werlin, a James Beard award-winning author of six books on cheese and “edu-tainer,” and Balletto Vineyards for an interactive, educational, comprehensive, and delicious tasting of the spectacular Balletto Vineyards estate grown and bottled wines together with, what else – the equally spectacular California cheeses. We will learn how the fruit, oak, acidity and alcohol in wine interact with the salt, fat, and protein in cheese to create good, great, and even the occasional not-so-great pairing too. What works? What doesn’t? Laura and the folks at Balletto will lead you through this fun and delicious tasting at the beautiful Balletto Vineyards event center in West Sonoma County. 

ADD ON – Balletto Vineyards is offering California Artisan Cheese Festival guests a “Wine Club for a Day” discount of 20% on all wines to those who attend the workshop on Saturday, March 23, 2024
