The MYSA team is headed north and is joined by our Vermont friends Jasper Hill Farms to bring you an evening of Wine & Cheese Pairings!

On October 28th, we’ll dive into practices and philosophies that Jasper Hill Farm and the natural wine world share, compare methodologies in food-focused farming, and taste remarkable wines and cheeses.

Taste through 5 cheeses thoughtfully paired with the three wines included in this box - a California red, an Austrian white, and an orange wine from the Languedoc.

In order to access the tasting, you must purchase the cheese kit from Jasper Hill.

THE CHEESE TASTING KIT

The box from Jasper Hill (click here to purchase) includes five cheeses as well as automatic registration for the class on the 28th. The kit includes:

  • Harbison (9-ounce wheel) — A spreadable bloomy-rind cheese wrapped in spruce bark, made by Jasper Hill Farm. Winner of the 2018 ACS Conference Best in Show Award!

  • Sherry Gray (7oz Medallion) — An ash-ripened double cream medallion. The ash-dusted exterior provides a perfect surface for cultivating microflora.

  • Bridgman Blue (1/8th wheel) — A complex mixed-raw-milk blue, with notable aromas of goat milk, white pepper, buckwheat honey, and caves. A dense but giving texture is creamy on the palate.

  • Whitney (6oz wedge) — Washed in wine, this raw milk mountain-style cheese is eminently snackable. Its flexible texture melts in your mouth and gives way to light floral and fruit notes.

  • Cabot Clothbound (6-ounce wedge) — An approachable but complex natural-rind, bandaged cheddar with a crumbly texture and nutty aroma. The flavor is deeply savory and slightly tangy, with caramel sweetness to the finish.

These will ship out the week of October 24th. All kits ship 1-2 day shipping. This means that your cheese will arrive between October 26th-28th in time for the virtual class.

An email will be sent a couple of days before the class with the webinar link along with information that you need to know to be ready for the event!

About Natural Wine

Great question! There are a lot of definitions for natural wine with the main term you'll hear being that it has had minimal intervention. To be more specific, our definition is that the wine must first be sustainably farmed, which typically means it was organically or biodynamically farmed.

Then, in the cellar the natural winemaking process has some differences as well! The wine is typically unfined, unfiltered, and goes through spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. If you want to know more about what natural wine is, we have an entire guide under our reference section!

The short answer is that natural wine can taste like any other kind of conventional wine (we like to call these stealth natural wines) or it can taste quite a bit different, as production methods can vary and potentially be lighter, or in a style you've never had before (like orange, pet-nat or amphora).

The natural wine community is also more accepting of some qualities in wines that conventional would consider a flaw, like Brett, some oxidation, or volatile acidity. We would consider these in high amounts to also be a flaw, but in many cases a touch of these qualities can ultimately improve their flavor and texture and be happily accepted in a natural wine.

The short answer is, no! But many are. Glou-glou describes winesthat are easily chuggable, impossible to put the glass down, and seductively delicious! They tend to be young and fresh, designed to be drunk early with an average ABV of around 10%. Check out different styles or glou glou natural wine here on our site.
