Trader Joe's Charcuterie Picks to pair with our canned wines

Let’s be honest with ourselves. Trader Joe’s is the holy grail of grocery stores. Easy, convenient, delicious, and creative enough to make you feel innovative and wise with your meal planning, all while keeping your budget happy (unless you’re like me and buy way too many toffee chips). Much like Just Enough, Trader Joe’s is always providing exactly what you need when you need it most. So, let’s bring two rights together to make a right: the ultimate Just Enough Wines and Trader Joe’s charcuterie board pairing.

Three wines. Three boards. Let’s do this thing. 



First up, the perfect TJ’s charcuterie board to enjoy with Just Enough Chardonnay. Start with a Double Cream Brie and the Unexpected Cheddar to anchor your board. Surround both with dried apricots and pita crackers. Create a salami river, or lake, or pond if you like. Sweeten it up a bit with fresh, crisp apple slices and apricot preserves. A few flowers for garnish, and a popped can of Just Enough Chardonnay, and your board is complete. Whether picnicking, hiking, or just making a Tuesday night dinner, this board is filling, well-balanced, and simply gorgeous. 


  • Apple slices
  • Double Cream Brie
  • Dried apricots
  • Light cured meats (nothing too intense)
  • Unexpected Cheddar
  • Pita bite crackers
  • Apricot preserves

*Adjust to your personal preference*

Our favorite flavor combination: Double cream brie on an apple slice with apricot preserves


Pinot Noir

April showers are still in the forecast, and our Trader Joe’s x Just Enough Pinot Noir board is an ideal rainy day snack, or brunch if you’re feeling adventurous. Warm, inviting flavors cover this board, making you feel all cozy on the inside. And it has chocolate so...what more could you want? Start it off with a pile of bacon-wrapped dates and coppa salami. Blueberry goat cheese and Gruyere come next, with fig and olive crisps on the side, as well as an olive tapenade for dipping. For a fruity touch, throw some blackberries and pomegranate seeds around the cheeses and meats, and then scatter bits of dark chocolate throughout. A sprig of rosemary on top, and voilà! Drop yourself in front of a fireplace with a good book, a glass of Just Enough Pinot Noir, and a big appetite for this delicious board!



  • Gruyere
  • Bacon-wrapped dates
  • Dark chocolate
  • Fig and olive crisps
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberry goat cheese

Brut Bubbles

Celebrate good food, come on! Oh boy, do we have a rockin’ board for you guys. To pair with Just Enough Brut Bubbles, this Trader Joe’s board will keep you coming back for more, and more, and more. The perfect blend of sweet, spicy, savory, and silky, we begin this board with a hunk of manchego cheese and a honey and red pepper goat cheese log (or crumbles, whatever suits your fancy). Next up comes smoked prosciutto and Calabrese salami, followed by french baguette slices and pita crackers. Sweeten it up with raspberries, grapes, and candied pecans, and add a dollop of fig butter as an accoutrement. Finish it off with a flute (or can) of Just Enough Brut Bubbles and you’re good to go.

  • Smoked prosciutto
  • Calabrese Salami
