Happy National Cheese Day!
What better way to celebrate this foodie holiday than with wine!?
Wine and cheese is a classic wine pairing. History shows that wines and cheeses from the same regions have been served together for hundreds of years. The commonly known pairing of “white wine with fish, and red wine with meat” holds the same idea that is applied to pairing wines with cheese: heavier full-bodied wines are typically served with with richer cheeses, and mild and less potent cheeses served with medium and light-bodied wines.
You may see different pairings in different areas due to the regional influences and traditions. Weather you are a wine and cheese connoisseur, or you are new to the world of wine pairing, it’s all about your personal preference. Grab your favorite wines and favorite cheeses and experiment for yourself to see what you prefer!
