Pairing Tips for Your Cheese Board
Let’s dive even deeper to help you find your perfect wine + cheese pairings. Here are some simple tips on what cheese to pair with red, white, sparkling, and rosé for your next cheese board:
Red Wines: They often pair best with hard, aged cheeses. Think Cabernet Sauvignon with aged cheddar or a fruity, full-bodied Shiraz with Gouda. For lighter reds, like Pinot Noir, opt for a nutty cheesy, like Gruyere.
White Wines: Lighter and crisp white wines go beautifully with soft cheeses. Try Sauvignon Blanc with goat cheese or a Chardonnay with a creamy Camembert.
Sparkling Wines: As mentioned, sparkling wine contrasts wonderfully with soft, creamy cheeses like Brie or even a sharp Asiago or blue cheese. The bubbles help cut through the richness.
Rosé Wines: Depending on the style, rosé wines can pair well with a range of cheeses. A Provence-style rosé might go beautifully with Havarti, while a Pinot Noir rosé can be paired with Fontina or feta cheese.
