One marriage no one can object to is the mouthwatering combination of wine and cheese. Each is delicious on its own, but when you pair the two, magic can happen. Be it tannic, light, sweet, or dry, you can bet there’s a wine out there for every cheese.
Here at Arbutus at The Crannagh, we have put together a list of our favourite wine and the best cheese to pair along with it…our mouth is watering thinking about it.
Prosecco and parmesan
The bubbles in Prosecco cut through the saltiness of this hard cheese. Plus, they’re both Italian!
Cabernet Sauvignon And Aged Gouda
In order to stand up to the nutty flavors in aged gouda, you need a tannic, full-bodied wine. Cabernet Sauvignon gets the job done.
Chardonnay And Gruyere
Whether you choose to snack on gruyere whole or melty, the fruit and nut flavors in Chardonnay are an ideal mate.
Malbec And Aged Cheddar
Chocolatey Malbec helps balance out the aggressive sharpness in aged cheddar. Who’s up for a bowl of adult macaroni and cheese?
Pinot Noir And Brie
Brie needs a wine that will go well with its distinct flavors while remaining light enough not to overwhelm them
Monterey Jack And Merlot
This classic American cheese craves a wine that’s on the lighter, fruitier side – just like Merlot.
Mozzarella And Pinot Grigio
The acidity of Pinot Grigio tangos well with this soft, slightly sweet classic pizza cheese.
Sauvignon Blanc And Goat Cheese
Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect distinct white wine to pair with this tangy cheese
