A Fine Wine and Cheese Pairing

A wine and cheese party

What a lovely wine and cheese party. Such parties are always a pleasure. But whether you are throwing the party or just a guest there is always the question: Wine and cheese, cheese and wine which wine with which cheese? Or perhaps you ask which cheese with which wine? We offer some popular pairings. Whether you select your wine or your cheese first, check our tables to get a great match that brings out the best in the cheese and the wine. There's nothing like the right wine and food marriage

Choosing a Wine to Match Your Cheese

If you don't see your favorite wine or cheese here remember that usually you can pair a wine with a local cheese, for example Italian wine with Italian cheese. For more ideas click on my French, German, or Italian wine articles in which we review a wine with food including one or two imported cheeses. The rule is that there are no rules. Enjoy!
