We’ve all been there. You know, when you spend about 10 minutes walking up and down the row of cheeses at the store, wondering which will go best with your wine for the evening. Here we lay out the best cheese types to pair with our delicious wines!
- Albariño: Soft cheeses like burrata, or semi-hard cheeses such as manchego, gouda, and salty feta complement Albariño.
- Roussanne: Roussanne goes with mild cheddar, Gouda, Smoked Gouda, Monterey Jack, Triple Creme, Spanish sheep’s milk cheese, and Brie.
- Chardonnay: Pair Chardonnay with pungent or high-acid cheeses such as blue cheese, or a Cheddar that is nutty in flavor and has a similar consistency to parmesan. Avoid funky, washed-rind cheeses (taleggio, Époisse), and aged goat and sheep’s cheese.
- Rosé Wine
- Grenache Rosé: Young cheeses like feta, mozzarella, cheddar, and baby swiss.
- Rosé Blend: Try our rosé blend with salty, fresh cheeses like Feta or Halloumi; or a creamy, fresh cheese like Burrata
- Merlot: Merlot pairs nicely with gouda, gorgonzola, brie, Jarlsberg or parmesan.
- Sangiovese: Aged Tuscan Pecorino, blue cheese, Grana Padano Stravecchio, and aged Asiago all complement Sangiovese’s acidity and flavor.
- Syrah: Gravitate toward the harder cheeses or stinky cheeses. Smoked Gouda is a fantastic pairing here. Bleu cheeses like Gorgonzola or Stilton, and hard cheeses like Parmesan or asiago are also nice options.
- Petite Sirah: Camembert, Swiss, Mozzarella, or Gouda are some cheeses to consider when looking to pair Petite Sirah. Avoid aged cheeses!
- Malbec: If you enjoy pungent, soft cheeses like gorgonzola or blue cheese, then definitely try it with our Malbec! If you don’t like those flavor profiles and prefer are more mild cheese, Monterey Jack, Provolone, and even melted Swiss cheese will go nicely as well.
- Tempranillo: Try our tempranillo with sheep’s milk cheeses.
- Cabernet Sauvignon: Look to aged cheddar, gorgonzola, or gouda when pairing with our Cab. Avoid soft cheeses
