Ontario Brie Cheese

Brie is a soft, bloomy rind cheese with a creamy, buttery interior. You can find many Ontario-crafted Bries like the double crème from St-Albert as well as international award winners like Albert's Leap "Bel Haven" from Quality Cheese in Vaughan, and Ontario and Brigid's Brie from Gunn's Hill Artisan Cheese in Woodstock, Ontario. Try pairing Ontario Brie with local stone fruit or honey or a glass of fruity red VQA Ontario wine.

Wine Pairing

Pair this exquisite dish with Henry of Pelham's flagship Baco Noir, a deep, dark red with ripe flavours of currant and blueberry fruit. Spicy, rich and smooth with a toasty oak finish.

Please enjoy responsibly.
