The buddy system is a beautiful thing, especially when it comes to wine and cheese. Go ahead — treat yo’ self. 


Wine and cheese is a favorite coupling the world over, and for a good reason too, because it just works. From simple to more complex, difficult flavors, a good cheese plate is always an excuse for a date, whether it be with a beau or a best friend. While you could easily put together your own at home with the help of places that seem to be one-stop-shopping for cheese plate creation (here’s looking at you, Bedford Cheese Shop), sometimes it’s more fun to have someone do the work for you where the lights are low and the wine is a perfect complement every time. Here are a few of my personal favorites. — SHAYNA GONSALVES
