The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Pairings

The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Pairings 

Coffee and cream. Peanut butter and jelly. Wine and cheese. As pairings go, there’s none better than wine and cheese. Though great on their own, something wonderful happens when wine and cheese are enjoyed together. Rich, creamy or salty cheeses complement the acidic and tannic qualities of wine – balancing out the flavors in the mouth and creating delicious harmony. If you’re planning a dinner party, or Hosting a Wine Tasting and need an idea of where to start, these wine and cheese pairings are matches made in heaven.

The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Pairings

Merlot + Gouda
A mild, semi-soft cheese like Gouda is particularly fantastic when paired with a tannic Merlot that showcases plenty of red, ripe fruit.


Zinfandel + Havarti
A powerful wine with spicy or smoky flavors like a Zinfandel is counteracted by the mild creaminess of this Danish cow’s milk cheese.


Cabernet + Sharp Cheddar
Only a sharp cheese like Cheddar can hold up to the strength of a big, bold Cab (whether it be a Cab Sauvignon or Cab Franc).


Pinot Noir + Blue Cheese
An earthy Pinot Noir with creamy flavors of berries and plums pairs well with the salty, spicy pungency of a rich blue cheese.


The Ultimate Wine & Cheese Pairings

Chardonnay + Camembert
These two form a perfect union. Creamy, soft-ripened Camembert will counteract the acidity of a crisp Chardonnay, enhance a fruity Chardonnay or complement a rich, buttery Chard.


Sparkling Wine + Brie
A glass of slightly sweet bubbly with good acidity throughout the palate calls for a soft, mild cheese like Brie. Want to take this pairing over the edge? Two words: baked Brie.


Sauvignon Blanc + Goat Cheese
The zip and zest of a Sauvignon Blanc is equaled by the acidity and bite of goat cheese or young goat cheese – called chèvre. This pairing is a classic for a reason.


Muscat + Swiss
A fragrant, invitingly sweet white wine like Muscat is complemented by a mild cheese like Swiss, which allows the flavors of the wine to shine through.

Quarantines and Earthquakes

Hi. How are you and your loved ones doing? Everyone safe and healthy? I hope everyone is illness free and has plenty of TP. :-)

The Stay at Home order isn't really affecting me too much. We work from home anyways, so its actually making us work more. I enjoy my house and my bed and I even signed up for Amazon Prime so I can watch more then what is on Netflix. We can't go out to eat in restaurants and we can't thrift store shop. I know, I know #FirstWorldProblems But I am thankful that I am in a relationship where I enjoy being around the person I am in a relationship with.

I have been ordering a Doordash or 2 a week. Doordash is a good thing and yet a bad thing. I can scroll and scroll and think about food, and even order it. It caters to this Taurus a little too well. I enjoy being at home, I like to eat, and I can make sure I tip the driver and make sure the restaurants can keep the lights on. I like to think of it as good karma.

Plus I can order DoorDash instead of suff…
