A new cheese & wine find from Alsace


A new cheese find from Alsace made in La Lorraine, produced by the monks of the Abbaye de Vergaville, the milk is sourced no more than 10 miles away. Known for having one of the last artisan and locally produced munsters in France. This beautiful cheese named for father Antoine “Tome du Pere Antoine aux fleurs de Sureau”, a mouthful to say. This cow’s milk is washed in an Alsatian Pear Liqueur and then Elderflower is added to the milk. An amazing semi soft, slightly floral, buttery, cheese perfect for summer. Perfect paired with the 2012 Schoech “Sonnenberg” Riesling from Alsace is a delicious wine on it’s own but really comes to life when paired with cheeses or typical Alsatian fare like trout. On the palate, this wine displays great balance of minerality, orchard fruit, citrus and baking spice. At $29 a bottle I consider this a great value and could hold its own against other Rieslings at twice the price!
