The Owl's Head in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn will be marking National Wine & Cheese Day on Saturday, July 25. Sommelier/owner John Avelluto curates an ever-changing list of affordable (and often allocated) white, orange, rosé, red and sparkling natural wines, with bottles from wine stars like Valentina Passalacqua and Domaine de la Pepiere alongside ones from lesser known producers like The Hermit Ram, Montesecondo, and Maloof Wines. For cheese pairings, The Owl's Head offers a rotating selection that may include Manchego sheep's milk cheese from Spain; buttery cow milk French triple-crème Brilliat-Savarin; Nettle Meadow’s Apple Jack Brandy infused triple crème Adiron-Jack and Cheddar Cheese Curds, as well as charcuterie, olives, and breads.
