Holiday Wine & Cheese Pairings
Name a more iconic duo than wine and cheese. Thankfully, you don’t have to go far to find a wide selection of specialty cheeses and wine varieties perfect for any occasion. Use our guide to mix and match your favorites for delicious bites and sips you can savor all season long.
Goat Cheese – The acidic, tangy flavor of fresh cheese pairs well with Rosé since the delicate flavors don’t compete with each other.
Manchego – Good matches for this nutty, hard sheep’s milk cheese are reds such as a Spanish Rioja, a fruity Merlot or a sweet wine like sherry.
Brie – This buttery-soft French cheese is an ideal pairing for sparkling wine, a crisp white such as Sauvignon Blanc or a fruity Pinot Noir.
Aged Gouda – Choose a wine that stands up to the slightly intense flavor of the cheese, such as an off-dry Riesling, lighter-oaked Chardonnay or Cabernet Sauvignon.
Don’t be afraid to embrace experimentation and trust your palate; personal preferences are key in discovering the perfect wine and cheese pairings.
