Last week a few girls from SPARC and I decided we needed to have a little wine and cheese happy hour after work. Accent on Wine already has a place in Summerville, and so the new spot in the cute Park Circle neighborhood is their second location. A few of the girls had been to the Summerville location before, so we knew we’d enjoy it (plus who doesn’t love a good wine & cheese girls night?).
The shop is both a restaurant and a retail store, so there are cases of wine everywhere, which will make you thirsty when you walk in. Once everyone was there we ordered a bottle of rose. Bottles are way cheaper than just ordering by the glass, so if you can agree on something, definitely do it!
Next step was picking out 5 cheeses to go on our “advanced cheese board.” We ended up with a mix: red dragon cheddar, Yancy’s fancy smoked double cream cheddar, cranberry with cinnamon goat cheese, Idiazabal sheep’s cheese, and the classic brie. 5 girls, 5 cheeses… as you can imagine even with the amount of food on the board these went pretty quick over some reality tv show talk.
Two hours later, we finally headed home after planning to do this as frequently as possible. All of our checks were under $20, which seemed unbelievable for the rose and cheese we consumed.
Will I be back? Yes. The service was a balance of present, but not hovering that you want when you’re chatting with friends. The cheese was great (granted I didn’t love them all, but I tried new ones), and I want to try the cheese & meat boards next time. Who’s in?
