4 Wine Pairings that Go Way Beyond Wine and Cheese

by Jessica Rotondi

When you buy wine in bulk on Boxed, you know you’re getting a curated selection of award-winning wines from around the globe hand-picked by Master Sommelier Dustin Wilson. But the true beauty of #BulkLife is variety and discovering new favorites, so why limit your wine pairings to cheese? With so many different wines to try, it’s time to get imaginative. Whether you’re stocking up for Thanksgiving and looking to go beyond traditional turkey and stuffing or want easy weeknight meals to take you from work to weekend, here are four wine pairings that bring out the beauty of wine — and snacks — in bulk. Cheers.

Mac and Cheese: Prosecco

The wine: Abbazia Cuvee Prestige from The Sweet Life wine collection

The match made in heaven: Cheez-Its, Annie’s Organic Mac & Cheese (also available in single serving cups)

Mac and cheese is the ultimate indulgence, so why not celebrate it with sparkling wine? We can think of no better way to end the day than with this fruity and dry wine made from Glera, the famous Italian prosecco grapes from Lombardy’s Collio vineyards.
