Wine and Cheese Please

Wine and cheese are a perfect combination. Last week at the winery, we held a wine and cheese pairing session for our employees. The employees enjoyed a presentation by Kendra Nissley our cheese provider from Jubilee Heritage Cheese. Jubilee Heritage is a 10th generation dairy farm in Londonderry Twp. The farm milks 180 Holstein cows and sells the majority of their milk to the Mount Joy Dairy Coop. We are fortunate enough to have partnered with Jubilee Heritage who produces a limited amount of cheese only 2 times a year. At Cassel Vineyards you can find 8 varieties of cheese including; smoked cheddar, cheddar, colby, tomato and basil colby, 5 pepper party colby, habanero colby, wine colby, garlic chive colby and rasberry habanero colby. Cassel Vineyards of Hershey produces 28 varieties of wine and believe the countless combination are worth exploring.

Our tasting room staff worked very hard to make the following Cassel wine and Jubilee Heritage Cheese pairing recommendations.. Here are some of them.

Five Pepper Colby with Chambourcin Reserve Smoked Cheddar with Red Silks Rose’ or Homestretch Red….. Rich and Nadine Espenshade
