Cheese and Wine, the perfect combination

by | Sep 13, 2020 | Blog

There is no better combination than wine and cheese, but have you ever wondered what is the perfect wine to go with your favourite cheese? Today we’re going to let you know, so you can savour every flavour and every bite!

Hard Cheeses
Hard cheeses include the popular Cheddar, Comte, Manchego and Parmigiano! For beginners, they are the easiest to pair with wine to experience the full-bodied flavour of both the drink and the food. If you are looking to try hard cheeses with wine, why not try the following:

Medium-bodied red wine such as a Cabernet Sauvignon or Rioja!

Soft Cheeses
Soft, spreadable cheeses to semi-soft cheeses including camembert and brie fall into this category. Fruity wines such as a Pinot Noir or Beaujolais and Rosé pair well with these types of cheeses.

Goats cheese pairs well with Sauvignon Blanc, as well as a dry, crisp
Provencal Rosé – perfect for the summer!

Blue Cheese

From Stilton, Gorgonzola and Roquefort, blue cheeses often pack a punch. Classic wine pairings tend to be sweet to provide a balanced flavour – this includes wines such as port, sherry, and sloe gin.
