WINE & CHEESE & NETWORKING, OH MY!
 
Since June is such a busy month for us, we wanted to give everyone a fun evening of relaxing and getting to know each other better. We played some fun networking games and had a delicious wine and cheese pairing, courtesy of the team at Giant Eagle Market District. In case you missed it, here are the different wines and cheeses we had the opportunity to taste:
Chevre, a tangy goat cheese
Black Creek Sharp Cheddar
Fromage d’Affinois, a double-creme French brie
BellaVitano, a cow’s milk cheese by the Sartori Company in Plymoth, Wisconsin
2018 Matua Sauvignon Blanc, $10.99 from Marlborough, New Zealand
2017 Hess Select Chardonnay, $11.99 from Monterey, California
2017 Shannon Ridge Cabernet, $9.99, Lake County, California
2016 Rhiannon Red Blend, $9.99-$11.99, California

 

During our networking games, we played Human Bingo and guessed each others’ first experience in the wedding industry. Congrats to Sean Burdine for winning Bingo!
