Wine and Cheese, Better Together

There are some pairings that are just meant to be, like wine and cheese. Whether you’re hosting a simple wine and cheese tasting for family and friends or want to just enjoy some of your favorite cheeses with wine, we have put together a few of our favorite pairings.

For our at-home tastings, we like having a variety of at-least 4 various cheeses, unique in its own flavor. Each cheese is of course paired off with wine. We start off the tasting with a red wine and close it off with a Brut.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON + AGED CHEDDAR

The Cabernet Sauvignon is a full-bodied wine with a long finish, which pairs perfectly with the aged Cheddar because of its rich flavor.

CHARDONNAY + GRUYERE

The ripe and crisp flavor of a chardonnay compliments the mild nutty flavors of Gruyere cheese.

PINOT GRIGIO + GOUDA

Pinot Grigio wines aren’t too sweet but are light, which pairs well with the sweet and creamy notes of Gouda cheese.

The acidity and carbonation of a Brut balances out the strong, delicious flavors in the delicacy of Brie.
