Italian Wine & Cheese Pairing


On Thursday, September 26th, Van Hook Cheese and Jersey Wine & Spirits will co-host one of their monthly pairing classes with two instructors who bring the class through five pairings. They’ll discuss the history, production techniques, tasting notes, and thought that goes into each component of the pairings that you’ll taste.  Italy produces a stunning variety of wine and cheese and there’s something for everyone! Hopefully you discover a new wine and cheese to share with your friends and family.

Van Hook Cheese and Grocery is a family-owned cheese and specialty grocery store located in downtown Jersey City.  They focus on high quality and local products.  If you have a party to attend this fall, we highly suggest purchasing a cheese platter through them.  Prices range from $100-$150 and are sure to impress! You can also skip the lines and pre-order cheese which is cut the day of pick up to ensure freshness.  Van Hook Cheese also has outstanding grilled cheese sandwiches, which are served on sourdough Pullman with hand-churned butter from Normandy.

Jersey Wine & Spirits is a first class liquor store that offers a wide selection of wines, beer and spirits.  They have a very knowledgeable staff and reasonable prices. They have excellent reviews on Yelp and are definitely a favorite in Jersey City.
