Anatomy of a Cabernet Board

Pairing Guide

THE WINE: Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon.
Full-bodied, bursting with cherry and blackberry flavors, edged with the soft aroma of baking spices.

CHEESE: Bold wine loves an effortless cheese like Cheddar. Be Adventurous: Soft tangy Chèvre goes great with Cabernet.

CHARCUTERIE: There are boundless opportunities. Your favorite Prosciutto is a good choice. Discover Something New: Salami with nuts or dried fruit adds layers of flavor and texture.

BREADS & MORE: Echo aromas and deep flavors in the extras. Explore baking spices in toasted baguettes or spiced nuts. Highlight dark fruit notes in pomegranates or blackberries.

Find Your Inspiration

There’s more than one way to create a crowd-pleasing wine-inspired board. Gather your family, build your boards — and tag us @hesscollection!

Behind the scenes, these are the boards we dream of:

  • Swap charcuterie for dark chocolate squares and miniature berry pies
  • Go star gazing with a board of s’mores and star-shaped cookies paired with our Treo Red Blend
  • Make it snacks-only with potato chips and cocktail sausages alongside our Sauvignon Blanc and Treo Red Blend
  • Color match board ingredients to your favorite Hess Select wine label (our personal favorite)


To create these three signature Holiday boards, we used color and flavor to guide us.

Hess Select Cabernet Sauvignon

RED: Prosciutto, pomegranate, and red peppercorns for decoration.

Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon

PURPLE: Genoa salami, blackberries, and spiced walnuts.

Hess Select Chardonnay

GOLD: Creamy alpine cheeses, winter citrus, and romantic candles.
