I am by no means a wine snob. I’m more of a ‘I’ll give anything a try once’ kind of gal, unless it comes to boxed wine. The only boxed wine I’ve purchased and loved so far is Black Box wines. For some reason when I think of boxed wines I think of sangria, but Black Box wines are higher quality than average box wines, are a lower price point, and of course being portable makes them perfect for pot lucks and summer entertaining.

So, if you are entertaining this summer I’ve put together a few wine, appetizer and cheese pairing ideas for you.

If you are heading to a potluck you can take a box of wine along with the appetizer, or cheese that pairs perfectly with it. Or, host a wine,  cheese and appetizer tasting at home.
