Wine and Cheese Pairing Ideas
We recently taught a Wine + Cheese Pairing class that highlighted some quick tips for pairing your favourite red or white wine with cheese. Below are the tips we covered and wines and cheeses we sampled to help you create the perfect wine and cheese pairings for your next party or gathering.
Two tips to consider when creating your wine and cheese pairing are:
1) Match texture
Typically red wine pairs better with harder cheese such as aged cheddar while white wines pair better with softer more delicate cheeses such as goats cheese.
2) Match Body
Try pairing full-bodied wines with bigger cheeses such as smoked Gouda and light-bodied wines with milder cheeses such as Swiss cheese.
Here is a quick glimpse at the wines we sampled along with pairing suggestions.
