Brie Pull Bread is the Perfect Cheesy Treat Paired with a Glass of Wine

Wine and Cheese as it was Meant to Be: Brie Pull Bread and Temecula Wine

Peanut butter and jea close up of a piece of cake on a platelly, salt and vinegar: some things just go well together. The same can be said about wine and cheese, and more specifically about wine and homemade brie pull bread! Here at Little Bus Tours, we are a local tour company in Temecula, CA who offer bus winery tours to people looking to enjoy a Temecula wine tasting experience. As you can imagine, we have tried our fair share of wines, but what we have also tried is our fair share of cheeses and sweet treats to accompany those wines. Brie pull bread is one of our absolute favorites!

Today, we wanted to share with you a recipe for a brie pull bread. If you have taken a Temecula wine tour with us before, then chances are that you couldn’t resist buying a bottle to-go from one of the wineries that we visited. Now’s your chance to finally twist the top and enjoy it with the perfectly paired cheesy dessert.
