wine and cheese tastingWine and cheese tasting events and classes have become quite popular in recent years. The appeal is obvious: not only are such classes informative, but the pairing of wine and cheese is a match irrefutably made in Heaven. Alor Cafe in Staten Island has expert sommeliers who are also cheese connoisseurs, and can instruct your guests in the best pairings of wine and cheeses. We can provide both wine and cheese, either one, or you can supply your own favorites. Alor Cafe’s relaxed, casual atmosphere is perfect for a wine and cheese tasting, allowing participants in your tasting to learn all about wine and cheese in a laid-back, unimposing ambience. Alor Cafe can accommodate groups of up to 35 in our restaurant, and our service staff will make certain that your wine and cheese tasting goes off without a hitch.

Experts in Both Wine and Cheese

If you’re hosting an introductory “wine and cheese 101” type of event, it can be difficult to give individual attention and instruction to all of your guests, but Alor Cafe’s Staten Island service staff can help out. We have a roster of excellent and informed sommeliers who can handle part of the instruction for your wine and cheese tasting event. Our sommeliers know to pair a white wine, sparkling wine or Rose with young cheeses like Brie or Camembert, and to serve a Gruyere or Gouda with a fuller-bodied wine such as Burgundy, Bordeaux or Cabernet Sauvignon. Everything in between is covered as well, from pungent cheeses (Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Sauternes) to a bold and salty Stilton, Gorgonzola or Bleu d’Auvergne (wines with both sweet and bold notes like a port wine, sherry or Recioto). Tannic reds and full-bodied white wines go best with Manchego, cheddar or Asiago, and semi-hard cheeses like Emmental, Havarti or Jarlsberg pair beautifully with Zinfandel, Merlot, Pinot Noir or Amontillado.

Let our expertise in wine and cheese assist with your wine and cheese tasting! Dial (718) 351-1101 today to make a reservation at Alor Cafe!

Beyond the Tasting, the Perfect Atmosphere

Staten Island’s Alor Cafe has lengthy experience in hosting wine and cheese tasting events, and from this experience we’re aware that serving excellent wine and cheese is by itself not enough to make an event successful. That’s why we employ event planners to help create a sublime atmosphere specifically suited to the occasion. Mood lighting and ambient music can have a huge influence on how participants perceive both wine and cheese, and our staff will take this into account when designing the ambience for your wine and cheese tasting. With our event planning staff, we can make sure that all you and your guests have to think about is the perfect combination of wines and cheeses. Planning wine and cheese tastings is one of the things that Alor Cafe is best at, so let our professionals take care of everything but the wine and cheese itself!
