If you have been looking for an excuse to make a charcuterie board, we got you. July 25 marks National Wine and Cheese Day, so if there was ever a time to whip out the cheeses it’s now. Charcuterie boards have been a huge trend for millennials for years now. According to Business Insider, the “Instagrammable” and creative nature of charcuterie boards is what makes them so appealing to us, but charcuterie boards are not a new phenomenon. 

Charcuterie boards started centuries ago in France, Cork Diningreports. Starting as a way to preserve all parts of the animal, it developed into the eye-pleasing plate of meats, cheeses, and fruits that we know today. Best paired with wine, the charcuterie board is a popular dish for celebrations and parties. 

In order to celebrate National Wine and Cheese Day—or any amazing summer celebration—the right way, you need to have the right products. Here are five women-owned brands and products to check out.

One thing that goes well with both wine and cheese is chocolate. My personal favorite type of chocolate is dark chocolate, but you can include a variety in your board. Chocolate Secrets is a successful Black women-owned chocolate brand that has a wide selection of chocolate to choose from.

7. Cheese & Things Custom Charcuterie Board

At the end of the day, if you’re too tired to build your own charcuterie board, you can always buy one pre-designed. Cheese & Things is a popular cheese brand that took off during the pandemic. Seeing the charcuterie board popularity on Instagram and being a lover of cheese herself, the founder launched the pre-made charcuterie board brand. 

There’s no better way to tap in to the charcuterie board craze than with a good glass of wine and a plate of amazing products. Make sure to keep it colorful, symmetrical, and full. When your charcuterie board is “Instagram worthy,” you’ll know you have a winner.
