How to match your cheese and wine

wine-chocolate-pairing

Cheese and wine parties may well have been consigned to the 1970s history books, but there is much to be said for this convivial combination. Who can resist a lavish platter of beautifully crafted cheeses, whether at the end of a celebratory meal, as an appetiser, or just as an excuse to open a bottle of wine and enjoy with friends? Matching your cheese with the right wine can sometimes be a challenge – it isn’t always as simple as sticking to your favourite red or white. Just as with any other food and wine matching, partnering wine and cheese comes down to a few key elements such as fat, moisture and salt content, texture and flavour complexity, so here’s a brief overview of which styles of cheese and wine work best together and why. You may even be surprised by some of the conclusions.

Rainy Day Activities in Margaret River

While the beautiful beaches and gorgeous summer weather are certainly key attractions of our corner of Western Australia, you’ll find plenty to explore during the cooler months or on a rainy day in the Margaret River region. If you want to stay active or are travelling as a family, there are magical limestone caves, extensive mountain bike trails, forest walks and scenic drives. To soak up the atmosphere at a slower pace, enjoy a long lunch or brunch or browse some of our favourite local galleries.

The intriguing tale of how Brown Hill wines got their name

wine-chocolate-pairing

Many people ask how Brown Hill got its name, and the story behind our wine labels. It’s a tale that begins in Kalgoorlie, of all places, some 830km east of Margaret River, in WA’s Goldfields-Esperance region – and not exactly known for its grape growing! The seed behind Brown Hill wines started from family roots deeply planted in the Goldfields, which now flourish in our vineyard in Margaret River.

A weekend escape to the Margaret River wine region is an easy three-hour drive from Perth.

It’s worth taking a few days to experience and explore our beautiful region. Here are a few of our local favourites that we’re stopped at as a family over the years that we recommend you add to your itinerary for when you need to stretch your legs on your trip.
