No surprise here, I love my wine. My surprise is in the title everyone! Allow me to introduce my newest investment, Wine Chips. Let me share a little about what I’ve been getting my taste buds into. After a lot of research on pairing wine with cheese (chips), Wine Chips is open for business, and their website just launched last week. It is very easy to navigate and order what you want. Wine Chips gives you the opportunity to search and discover different gluten-free chips of cheeses of your preference.
Flavors consist of Bleu Cheese, paired with Sauvignon Blanc, port, or whatever suits your fancy; Smoked Gouda, paired with Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, or sparkling wine. You are able to pre-order it. Their shop is still under construction, but the website offers quite a bit of insight. After a lot of samples and a lot of wine, I highly encourage you to try out Wine Chips!
Really, Wine Chips gives excellent ideas for what should be paired with their beloved chip. My advice? Explore how all the reds are with their Bleu Cheese. Venture out and test it yourself. Remember, with red wine, you want it to be stored at 55° F, 10° F below the ideal serving temperature–according to Wine Enthusiast. Light, humidity, and temperature can all affect the red! (Haven’t heard of Wine Enthusiast? Get to reading my wine people!) Some red examples are–Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, Pinot Noir, etc.
Once again, look to my new investment for some info on pairing white wine with their chip (Smoked Gouda). Storing white wine is very similar to red. You want the temperature to be in the 55° range, and watch the light and humidity. You want your wine to be somewhat still when storing. Most wine is not meant for aging, however. There is a very small percentage, so drink it up! Who buys wine to store anyway? Here are some white examples–Chardonnay, Muscat, Pinot Grigio, Reisling, etc.
Read their story and you’ll easily see why I couldn’t wait to be involved:
We made Wine Chips because we love wine and we love cheese (who doesn’t?) but realized that putting the cheese IN the wine was a bad idea for both.
So one evening in 2017, over a glass of wine (ok maybe two), we wished for something simple, portable, dip-able, endlessly snack-able, cheese-ladened and delicious.
With my journey involved with Wine Chips, I want to take you with me! What are you thinking thus far?
