The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Pairing Guide
Pairing wines and cheeses can be a difficult task. We’ve complied a list of the 10 best pairings for you to try!
Pinot Noir and Gruyere: these two complement each other perfectly. Pinot Noir’s fruity flavor flawlessly accompanies the nutty taste of Gruyere.
Pinot Grigio and Mozzarella: these two are an often overlooked combination. Pinot Grigio’s acidic taste works well with the milkiness of Mozzarella.
Provence Rosé and Havarti: Provence Rosé has a delicate flavor. Havarti is the perfect cheese to accompany the Rosé without overpowering it.
Champagne and Brie: Brie is an extremely thick and creamy cheese. It needs to be paired with sharp flavored wines like Champagne!
Merlot and Monterey Jack: Merlot has a light and fruity flavor. It’s the perfect match for the mild and slightly sweet taste of Monterey Jack!
Port and Bleu Cheese: Bleu cheese can be difficult to pair due to its pungent taste. It works best with sweet wines like Port!
Malbec and Edam: Malbec’s ripe berry flavor is the ideal complement to the mild and nutty taste of Edam cheese.
Prosecco and Parmesan: Most people don’t think to serve parmesan with wine, but they are missing out! It pairs best with the light & crisp Prosecco.
Cabernet Sauvignon and Cheddar: Cabernet Sauvignon’s dry taste is the ideal companion for the sharp and slightly bitter cheddar cheese.
Viognier and Jarlsberg: Viognier is a typically dry wine with drupe fruit flavors. It is a great companion for savory Jarlsberg cheese!
