Venissimo Cheese teaches perfect pairings

July 10, 2015, San Diego City Beat

If you're a cheese fanatic—like myself—you’re familiar with Venissimo Cheese, and its four locations in San Diego. But what you may not be aware of is its Academy of Cheese classes with some designed for wine lovers, too. 

Last month I attended Venissimo’s “Classic Wine and Cheese Pairing” class at its downtown location (789 West Harbor Drive). The quaint spot serving as a makeshift classroom with long tables was set for 16 eaters and drinkers. 

Upon arriving, staff greeted us with Prosecco and a sliver of Mt. Tam triple-crème Brie. I was hooked on both.
