This week I am switching things up a little and taking you into one of my favorite spots to grab a glass of wine and cheese. Bar Sardine is a casual, quaint gastropub located in the West Village of NYC. I love sitting on the stools at the window and people watching as I grab a few small bites. This West Village spot has a great neighborhood feel that I absolutely love. Since the restaurant vibe is casual I wore one of my go-to looks to grab drinks which is my grey skinnies and black moto jacket. The Kate Moss x Equipment scarf gives the look a little bit of a rock and roll vibe. During this visit, I decided to try a new Prosecco called Da Mar from Italy. It paired perfectly with this Cremont cheese from Vermont. Cremont is a goat/cow's milk cheese that has a soft, spreadable texture. It is creamy, buttery and just sharp enough to pack a little bit of a punch. They served it with honeycomb and quince jelly which is a sweet jelly that tastes like a combination between an apple and pear. So delicious!
Da Mar Prosecco $12.99/bottle, WhiteHorseWine.com
Cremont Cheese (VT): $11.99/wheel Murrayscheese.com
What The Experts Say:
100% Glera. Extra Dry. Sourced 100% from estate vineyards planted on sedimentary, gravelly-pebbly soils. Light, floral, refreshing and delicious. Ripe melon and honeysuckle with a touch of granny smith apple and sweet pineapple
What I Say:
This dry prosecco is super refreshing and light. I loved the slightly fruity taste because it wasn't too sweet or overpowering. It paired perfectly with this buttery cheese and mini toast. If you are in the mood for something a little different, I recommend serving this prosecco at your next diner party. It is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
