The Makings of a Perfect Fall Charcuterie Board
- Butternut Wines – All of our wines were crafted to be crowd-pleasing and food-friendly, so you can’t go wrong with any of them! Choose between our Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, or our newest addition, Sparkling.
- Lesley Stowe Raincoast Crisps – These artisanal crackers come in a variety of flavors, but for a Fall-themed board, we recommend the Fig & Olive variety for a touch of sweetness.
- La Panzanella Crackers – We love La Panzanella’s Rosemary or Whole Wheat artisan crackers to add more flavor and options to your Fall charcuterie board.
- Cheese and Charcuterie – Choose your favorite soft and hard cheeses and add a variety of cured meats.
- Fall Fruits and Nuts – If it’s seasonal, it works! We love using crisp apples, juicy pears, sliced figs, and almonds.
- Sweet Additions – Drizzle honey over your cheeses or add a dollop of fig jam on the side.
- Herbs and Pomegranate – Use rosemary sprigs and pomegranate seeds for the final Fall touch!
