Where Wine and Cheese Are Bliss

Allihies Melton | May 16, 2017 | Food & Drink Best of The Best Eat

These hot spots have figured out the calculus of perfect pairings of wine and cheese.
Just beyond Georgetown's Four Seasons sits ENO Wine Bar, a great stop for wine, cheese and charcuterie on a spring night

ENO Wine Bar at Four Seasons
Expertise has never tasted so heavenly. This is the go-to place to enjoy a wide range of local and imported fine wine by the glass or bottle (the on-tap wines are sublime here). The website even has a pairing search, where you can see what cheese and chocolate is best paired with your preferred glass. To satisfy your appetite, indulge in the ENO Experience: three charcuteries choices and three cheeses for $24. 2810 Pennsylvania Ave. NW

No need to fly across the world to experience Italy. This DC restaurant has a similar romantic mood and beautiful cuisine. Their diverse and delicious cheese selection includes Mountain Top Bleu or Cave Aged Cheddar. Enjoy a tasting plate ($18) in the dining room, or duck outside to the plaza with bocce court, front patio. 1940 11th St., NW

Blue Duck Tavern
Whether you’re on a date or an outing with friends, the cheese and charcuterie Board ($32)—with the chef’s cheese selections, housemade pickles and seasonal jam—will produce smiles. Complete the duo with a glass of exquisite chardonnay or pinot grigio. 24 & M streets, NW

Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar
Sample the world in one sitting. Order just two ($14) or the entire board ($32) of decadent dairy including truffelino cheddar from England and moses sleeper from Vermont. Match the savory with wines form California, Spain and other global varietals. 223 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE
