What You Need To Know About Muenster Cheese And Wine

Muenster cheese is an American cheese, only vaguely related to the French Munster cheese described below. Muenster cheese is a smooth textured cow's milk cheese with an orange rind and a light color. Its flavor is usually very mild, but upon aging Muenster can develop a strong flavor with a pungent aroma. It is often served as an appetizer or melted and served in grilled cheese sandwiches and cheeseburgers.

Munster Fermier is an Alsatian (French) cheese that has been produced for well over one thousand years. It is made from unpasteurized cow's milk and ripens in damp cellars for several weeks or 3 months depending on its size. This is one special cheese and calls for special wines such as an Alsatian Late Harvest Gewurtztraminer or a Cote-Rotie.

For the American Muenster Cheese in addition to the wines mentioned in our food pairing table you might consider a Beaujolais or a Zinfandel.
