What You Need To Know About Feta Cheese And Wine

Feta is a brined curd cheese traditionally made in Greece, and parts of Turkey and the Middle East from sheep and goat milk. Since 2005, within the European Union Feta must contain at least 70% sheep milk, with the remainder being goat’s milk. Elsewhere this cheese may include cow's milk. The milk is salted and cured for several months and is usually stored in brine. Feta Cheese is a table cheese and one of the key components of Greek Salad. You can eat it raw or cooked but remember that it is high in salt and, perhaps surprisingly, high in fat.

In addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Beaujolais, a Pinot Blanc, or a French Sancerre.
