Wine & Cheese Shops - Long Island - Laffey Real Estate

The pairing of wine and cheese has been practiced for centuries—in France, of course, but also in Britain. In both countries, it was recognized that cheese just seemed to bring out the best of the wine, and vice versa.

Turns out, it's all about chemistry. The astringency of wine is caused by a substance known as tannins, the acidity of which makes your mouth pucker. Cheese, on the other hand, is creamy and fatty and coats your mouth. Your mouth reacts pleasurably to the creamy coating at first, but then needs the wine to cut through it, cleansing your palate. Wine and cheese truly do complement each, causing you to crave the opposite whenever you consume one or the other.

So many of our Nassau County homes for sale and Suffolk County homes for sale are within easy driving distance of premier wine and cheese shops on Long Island. Pick up one of Long Island's fabled wines paired with special cheeses, savory crackers, and fruit, then check out Long Island's fabulous green spaces for a picnic. Our REALTORS® can tell you much more about the amenities in your neighborhood of choice.
