~7~ Wine & Cheese Party- Cheese & Wine Pairing

Introduction

Laura Werlin, author of "All American Cheese and Wine Book", suggested many of these pairings in an article in Southern Living, by Joy E. Zacharia & James Schend.

Soft-ripened, mellow cheese such as Brie, Camembert and Triple Creme taste great with sparkling wine, Chianti, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet, Chardonay or Pinot Noir.

Soft Young Cheese like organic goat cheese pairs well with simple young wines like Sauvignon Blanc and Sancerre.

Semi-hard cheese like sharp cheddar pair well with late-harvest Gewurztraminer, Merlot, Grenache and Zifandel.

Hard Cheese like Asiago, Parmesan taste great with Riesling, Sangiovese, sherry and sparkling wines.

Pungent Blue Cheese- Milk white marbled cheese with blue-green mold. Tangy piquant flavored cheese pairs well with late-harvest Riesling, Riesling, Gewurztraminer and sparkling wines like Brut.

Washed-rind cheese like Limburger and Taleggio taste terrific with light fruity wines like Cotes du Rhone, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir and Cream Sherry.
