How To Host An Eco-Friendly Wine And Cheese Party

Since it is the harvest season, I thought it would be fun to host an organic wine and cheese tasting party. Doesn’t it sound lovely to invite a few of your friends over on a chilly fall night to try different types of cheeses and wines from all over the world? I think it would be fun to choose a region of the world and ask each guest to bring either a bottle of wine or a wedge cheese from that region to share. A wine and cheese party is a simple and fun way to spend the evening. Read on to learn how I am preparing for this fun night.

Here’s what you will need:
  • 4-6 bottles of organic wine
  • 4 ounces of organic cheese per person
  • organic plain crackers
  • water

Set up:

Pour 2 ounce tastes for each of the wines and serve the water and crackers as palate cleansers. You could also serve other appetizers. The organic cheeses that I chose for this particular night include; organic Brie, Gouda and Le Gruyere.

When setting up this party, I used items from my own kitchen including dinnerware, silverware, stemware and linens. This party had almost zero landfill waste since the bottles are recyclable and most of the packaging was too.

    I totally would, even though I do not drink. I always get organic cheese and make sure that they are vegetarian (meaning no animal rennet). I love sharp cheese like extra sharp chedder and swiss. I also love the mild creamy munster. There are lots of other fancy cheeses I have tried and loved but I do not remember their names! LOL

    Hi one4earth,
    I agree, I think it would be lovely. I will definitely be doing this party once the holidays are over. Since, I will be super busy for both Thanksgiving and the Winter Solstice.

    That’s a great idea. There are so many good organic wines now, too.
