What You Need To Know About Creamy Blue Cheese And Wine

One example of a creamy Blue Cheese is Cambozola, a cow's milk cheese that combines a French soft-ripened triple cream cheese and Gorgonzola, an Italian blue cheese. This cheese dates back about one hundred years but is now patented by a German company. It uses the same blue Penicillium roqueforti molds that make the famous Gorgonzola, Roquefort, and Stilton blue cheeses. Cambozola is rich but mild tasting, compared to most blue cheeses or Camembert. If you are not a fan of strong cheeses you should try this one.

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider an Italian Dolcetto or a California Chardonnay for most creamy blue cheeses. For the Cambozola try a Chardonnay, a German Riesling, or a Sparkling wine.
