The perfect pre-game: Bordeaux Itaipava

Does the name Bordeaux sounds familiar? If you answered yes, then it’s because you read my previous blogpost about Bordeaux in Petropolis.  Turns out there is another one in Itaipava which is bit different.  Discovering Bordeaux Itaipava was an unexpected  and wonderful surprise.  <img src="bordeaux-wine-cheese.jpg" alt="Bordeaux cheese" />We were walking around exploring the different shops when we saw some people dining outside next to a wine shop.  As we got closer I saw that there was a spread set up in the wine shop and started to make my move… I LOVE wine and cheese, seriously it is one of my favorite things to do (wine and cheese pairing) and it is difficult to find a good variety of cheeses in Rio so this was such a treat!

Pick your bottle, then head over to the cheese and charcuterie spread featuring 10 different cheeses, breads, crackers, meats and pate. Does it get any better?
